November 22, 2013, is the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and today's episode looks at one of the (many) ongoing unknowns in the case - the identity of a witness who came to be known as the babushka lady. Only one person has ever come forward with the claim of being the babushka lady, but her story isn't entirely consistent.

Our listener mail is from Facebook, from our listener Amanda. She writes about our Haunted Mansion episodes (part one and part two).
