MYFOXNY.COM - Philip Shenon, author and former NY Times reporter, says one of the world's most controversial murder investigations was doomed to fail because the lead investigator was trying to protect the victim's family more than getting the truth.

The victim was President John F. Kennedy. The "doomed" investigation was the Warren Commission that found Lee Harvey Oswald was the sole killer, according to Shenon in his book, A Cruel and Shocking Act.

"There is evidence Oswald told other people what he was going to do. An FBI memo suggests Oswald marched into an embassy in Mexico and announced he was going to kill Kennedy," said Shenon.

The Warren Commission left a lot of unanswered questions.

The FBI faced many questions because it had Oswald under surveillance before the assassination.

The events immediately after the shooting are also questioned by Shenon in his book.

"It was described as a three-ring circus. It (medical attention) should have been done at an Army hospital where they really know how to handle gunshot wounds," said Shenon.
