ASSASSINATION OF A U.S. PRESIDENT?

Charles Harrelson was born in Huntsville, Texas in 1939.  Harrelson was a hell-raiser and he loved his reputation.  He drove around Huntsville in Lincoln Continentals, he wore custom-made suits and he always had massive amounts of cocaine in his possession.  He was also an expert card-shark.

Women considered him handsome, self-sufficient and charming.  He opened the doors for women, lit their cigarettes and refused to use profanity in their presence.   He also drunk expensive scotch and wine and read a variety of books.

Harrelson hung out with his best friend Charles Rogers, who was in Navy Intelligence, in 1956, Rogers joined the CIA.  Rogers was suspected of killing his parents but he disappeared.  Reports indicate, that Rogers became an assassin.

Harrelson was also an expert marksman. In 1960, he became a contract killer, one of the best (and highest paid) in the world.  In 1968, he was hired to kill businessman Sam Degelia.  He would serve time in Leavenworth for the murder.

After being released, Harrelson’s wife gave birth to a son, Woody, who later achieved fame as an actor on “Cheers.”

Investigative reporter Jack Anderson believes Harrelson was involved in the assassination of John F. Kennedy.  In the book “The Man On The Grassy Knoll,” John R. Craig and Philip A. Rogers claim that Harrelson and Charles Rogers (who resurfaced) were the two gunmen behind the picket fence on the Grassy Knoll and that Rogers was the Lee Harvey Oswald imposter who traveled to Mexico a month before the assassination.  The book also makes claims that Harrelson and Rogers were two of the three tramps arrested in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963.  The Tramps were arrested and photographed. In the documentary “The Men Who Killed Kennedy” it was revealed, top photographic experts matched Harrelson’s photo against one of the photos of the ‘Three Tramps.” Conclusion, it’s the same man.

After their release, Rogers reportedly left the country in a CIA plane to South America and hasn’t been seen since.  Reports indicate that Rogers was part of the Iran-Contra program, another report says he was murdered in Honduras.

In 1979, Harrelson was paid $250,000 to assassinate Federal Judge John H. Wood on May 29th, 1979.  The Judge was killed by a clear perfect shot from a high-powered rifle.

Wood’s murder investigation was the most intensive manhunt since the JFK assassination, over $1 million was spent.

A friend of Harrelson’s was arrested for an unrelated crime and turned State’s evidence against Harrelson.  The authorities went to arrest Harrelson.   He held them off for six hours, pressing a .44 against the side of his face.  He finally surrendered.

While under arrest, he confessed to the murder of John F. Kennedy.  He later withdrew the confession but was convicted of murdering Judge Wood and sentenced to two life terms.

In 1995, Harrelson attempted to break out of Atlanta Federal Prison.  He was recaptured and moved to Florence Maximum Penitentiary in Colorado.

Last year, son Woody Harrelson assembled a dream team of attorneys to file an appeal on his father’s behalf.  The appeal was denied. Justices declined without comment to consider the case.  At age 65, Harrelson is serving two life sentences without parole.

Update: Charles Harrelson died in prison of heart failure in 2007.
