Gary CornwellThe assassination of President John F. Kennedy shocked the world, and the crime captured the imaginations of people everywhere, perhaps more than any other event in the 20th century. If you were born before November 1963, you probably can still remember where you were when you heard the news of the President's death.

Everyone knows that the crime was investigated by the Warren Commission. Everyone knows that the official government explanation was that Lee Harvey Oswald was the assassin, and that he acted alone. Relatively few believe that was the truth. What most people do not realize is that there was a second government investigation; even fewer know what evidence and shocking revelations came from it. Between 1977 and 1979, forty-five attorneys, investigators and researchers conducted the most thorough investigation that has ever been conducted to determine whether there really was a conspiracy. As the Deputy Chief Counsel for the Select Committee on Assassinations, Gary Cornwell led that investigation.

Gary Cornwell, a native Texan, has been a trial lawyer for over 40 years. He was a prosecutor with the U.S. Department of Justice Organized Crime and Racketeering Section for seven years, and served as the Chief of the Organized Crime Strike Force in Kansas City, where he successfully tried and convicted the chiefs of the Mafia families in both Kansas City and Denver.

He was honored with the U.S. Department of Justice Special Achievement Award and the Justice Department’s Special Commendation for Outstanding Service. He is listed in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers and in Who’s Who in American Law.

In 1977, Cornwell was asked to head the investigation of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, as the Deputy Chief Counsel for the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations.

Cornwell now practices law in Montgomery, Texas. Real Answers is his first book.
