The assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963 has a multitude of conspiracy surrounding it. It has been hypothesized that a second filming of the assassination, (one from a different angle) would answer the long-asked question of whether there is or is not a second shooter responsible for JFK's death, is in existence. Unfortunately said, the hypothetical film has not been seen since a House Select Committee in 1978 on assassinations. It was reportedly filmed by Orville Nix who then sold the film to the UPI agency in 1963 for $5,000 believing that it would be returned in 25 years. During those years, it was turned over to the US government for the Warren Commission, among other things. However, the film has not seen the light of day since 1978 and its current whereabouts, aside from the general assumption that has not left the hands of the US government, are unknown.
In 2015, granddaughter to Nix, Gayle Nix Jackson, sued the US government, specifically the National Archives, for 10 million dollars to see the return of the film while also claiming it to be as important as the Zapruder film.
The film itself, if it does indeed exist, could hold vital evidence in regards to if JFK's gunman acted alone or if there was a second shooter on the other side of Dealey Plaza.
