Several minutes later, when the light was green again, I continued up the road. A couple of miles down the road, I see the van parked in front of an apartment building. The guy wasn't in it, but I had my camera with me and I began clicking away.
In the windows were lots of different articles. Some from Time and Newsweek and some were written by him with a typewriter. I was in too much of a hurry to read them all, but the jist of it was that quotes from Reagan and Nixon in a couple of these articles were actually government codes pertaining to government conspiracy to kill John Lennon.
It was all very entertaining, but a little
hard to buy. Either way, I thought it'd be worth sharing with the world.
Get the real story
John Lennon's Murder
The Murder Of John Lennon a gripping (and factual) account of the last couple of months of John Lennon's life, including a detailed account of the fateful night. (This page is slow and very flaky).
While it's clear Mark Chapman shot John Lennon, there are those who believe there was a conspiracy behind John Lennon's murder. Here are a couple of pages that deal with this. First is THE JOHN LENNON FILES which talks a little about the conspiracy. Then there's the Death of John Lennon! which is a personal page of a Cal Poly student who came across a book entitled "Who Shot John Lennon." The book is no longer in print, but it wasn't very hard to find through a book search company.
There's also John Lennon - FBI files by Jon Wiener, who has sued the FBI and CIA under the Freedom of Infomation Act for release of the files kept by these agencies around the time John and Yoko were applying for residence in the US. Some new papers have been released recently.
