Denton to Discuss Latest Article, New Revelations in JFK Assassination During Nov. 14 Presentation

JFK PhotoOlney Central College Instructor David Denton will discuss his most recent article on President John F. Kennedy’s assassination and explore new revelations associated with the case during a presentation at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 14 at OCC’s Dr. John D. Stull Performing Arts Center.

Denton’s in-depth work, “Nexus Redux,” features information gathered from recently declassified documents and follows up his article, “Nexus: The JFK Assassination’s Place in History and a New Witness,” which he released late last year. Both articles can be accessed at

Denton said the documents released by the National Archives expose two major revelations — the mayor of Dallas had direct connections to the CIA and Lee Harvey Oswald was sent on an anti-Castro mission to Mexico City.

During the presentation, Denton will explore both discoveries as well as potential forces behind Kennedy’s assassination on Nov. 22, 1963.

“There will be some new things I will be bringing out,” Denton added.

In addition to the OCC event, Denton will give a presentation at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 20 at Lincoln Trail College in Robinson. He also will serve as a presenter for an upcoming JFK conference in Dallas.

Denton has studied the Kennedy assassination for more than two decades and has taught the course, Political Assassinations of the 1960s, since 2001. Over the years, he has interviewed several people associated with the case and has researched hundreds of documents related to both Kennedy and Oswald.

In 2013, Denton helped organize a two-day event at OCC marking the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s death. The conference brought together nationally-known academics, scholars and authors to lend their perspectives on the events leading up to and following the assassination. In 2014, Denton organized and participated in a national conference in Washington, D.C. focusing on the Warren Commission Report.

Denton, as well as the rest of the JFK Historical Group, will be hosting a conference in Washington, D.C. in March of next year entitled “The Big Event: New Revelations in the JFK Assassination and the Forces Behind His Death.”
