" It is highly unlikely Lee killed Kennedy."
If he didn't, is isn't for lack of opportunity or ability. The actual location from where Oswald was shooting to the president was only about 200 feet (67 yards.) Oswald was an excellent shot. During his Marine Corps service in December 1956, Oswald scored a rating of sharpshooter (twice achieving 48 and 49 out of 50 shots during rapid fire at a stationary target 200 yards (600 feet.) If you still have doubts as to whether or not Oswald could make the shot, then you only need to refer to the case of Charles Whitman, the UT Texas tower sniper. Whitman killed fourteen people and injured dozens more in a little over ninety minutes, some at distances greater than 500 yards, and even in the face of police and armed citizens shooting back at him. And, Oswald had the same sharpshooter's rating as Whitman. Also, as Oswald was exiting the book depository, he encountered a police officer, which he immediately killed with his .38 caliber revolver without hesitation.
I tend to apply Occam's Razor when it comes to Oswald shooting Kennedy. He had the ability, means, and opportunity to carry out the crime.
