Mystery deepens as the JFK assassination files reveal UK spy warning and new theories of motives behind world’s most shocking murder

A SOVIET spy living in Grimsby may have tipped off a newspaper  that John F Kennedy would be assassinated 25 minutes before the shooting, it was  revealed yesterday.

British-born Albert Osborne, 75, had befriended the US President’s killer Lee Harvey Oswald two months earlier.

The pair travelled together to Mexico to meet KGB agents in the run-up to the 1963 Dallas murder  that rocked the world.

A mystery phone call was made to the Cambridge News as  gunman Oswald lay in wait for JFK’s motorcade, according to secret files on the assassination that were finally released yesterday on the orders of President Donald Trump. The man on the line hung up after telling the paper’s senior reporter: “Call the American Embassy in London for some big news.”

The call, which is believed to have been from traitor Osborne, was made  at 6.05pm on the fateful day — November 22, 1963.

Less than half an hour later JFK was  dead at age 46.

An FBI memo  reveals: “After the word of the President’s death was received the reporter informed the Cambridge police of the anonymous call and the police informed MI5.

“The important point is that the call was made, according to MI5 calculations, about 25 minutes before the President was shot.

“The Cambridge reporter had never received a call of this kind before and MI5 state  he is known to them as a sound and loyal person with no security record.”

The memo to the FBI’s director was from his deputy James Angleton.

It emerged among 2,891 previously classified documents that  shed fresh light on the probe into JFK’s murder.

No mention was made of the  call in the paper’s coverage of the shooting at the time.

Ex-soldier Osborne, who quit the British Army before the outbreak of World War One, was recruited by the KGB after travelling to America.

He is believed to have died in hospital in San Antonio, Texas, the same year Kennedy was shot.

President Trump said he wanted remaining secret files released to finally lift the “veil” on JFK’s assassination — which has been a rich seam for conspiracy theories.

But 300 were withheld at the last minute following pleas from intelligence agencies, who warned they could endanger national security.

Oswald himself fell prey to an assassin two days after Kennedy was killed.

Police were escorting him to a Dallas prison when businessman Jack Ruby gunned him down. It led to claims the communist former Marine was silenced as part of a cover-up.

A subsequent official probe, called the Warren Commission, found Oswald acted alone.

He had defected to the Soviet Union in 1959 only to return to the US three years later.

According to the  documents out yesterday,  Russia suspected the Democrat President’s assassination was the start of a right-wing coup.

The Kremlin also feared it would be used as a pretext to “stop negotiations with the Soviet Union, attack Cuba, and thereafter spread the war.”

The conspiracy industry surrounding JFK’s assassination has been fed by books and movies such as Oliver Stone’s 1991 film JFK.

Last week a poll found just one in three Americans believe Oswald had no help. The Soviets and Cuba are often cited as chief suspects — along with the Mafia.

Among other files yesterday was one detailing how the CIA offered mob boss Sam Giancana $150,000 to assassinate Cuban leader Fidel Castro.

THE THEORIES…

Vice President behind killing

THE  Soviets believed US Vice President  Lyndon B Johnson was behind the assassination.

A memo from  FBI director J Edgar Hoover, dated December 1 1966, quoted a US spy in Russia.

It said the KGB possessed “data purporting to indicate Johnson was responsible”.

Vice President Johnson’s involvement has been speculated on for years.

But this is the first time an official Government document has raised the theory.

Just hours after the shooting Johnson was sworn in as US President on Air Force One.

KGB tabs on Oswald

LEE Harvey Oswald was kept under surveillance while visiting Mexico City in September 1963.

Two months before the  assassination he was intercepted speaking to a KGB officer in broken Russian in the city, pictured.

The CIA paperwork said he called Soviet Embassy consul  Vladimirovich Kostikov on October 1.

Oswald asked whether there was “anything new concerning the  telegram to Washington”.

Kostikov was in the 13th Department, which was responsible for assassinations.

AN informant identified Dallas police officer JD Tippit as the  killer.

The patrolman was shot dead by Oswald when he  stopped him  45 minutes after the assassination.

According to a note sent to the FBI, an  informant was told by someone called  H Theodore Lee that Tippit, above, was responsible.

Tippit was said to have been head of the right-wing John Birch Society in Dallas.

A week before the shooting he apparently met with a third party, who was possibly Oswald, in  a nightclub belonging to Jack Ruby. Ruby later shot Oswald dead.

‘Payback’ by the CIA

THE CIA was furious with JFK for his “soft stance” on Cuba and communism.

The President had refused them  air support in their efforts to oust Fidel Castro, below, in 1961.

One file also  reveals lawyers for the Rockefeller Commission into illegal CIA activities were probing if “there is any information involved with the assassination of President Kennedy which in any way shows that Lee Harvey Oswald was in some way a CIA agent or agent”.

The question goes unanswered in the document.

Mafia hired

THE Mafia was approached by the CIA to kill  Fidel Castro, the US Government files show.

An FBI memo says  the CIA  hired an intermediary to talk to mob boss Sam Giancana. The go-between offered him $150,000 to organise   a hitman to take out the Cuban leader.

Knowledge of the “project” was kept to just six people and there were “no memoranda on the project nor were there other written documents or agreements”.

A 1975 file from the Rockefeller Commission said the then Attorney General Robert Kennedy, above, learned of the CIA’s link to the Mafia.

It warned against using the mobsters because of  a difficulty in prosecuting them.

Rifle riddle

Some ballistic experts have claimed there must have been a second shooter, firing from a different angle

IT has long been suggested there was not enough time for Lee Harvey Oswald to reload and fire his rifle three times.

Some ballistic experts have claimed there must have been a second shooter, firing from a different angle. This stems from the official investigation into the assassination which claimed  Oswald managed to kill the President as well as wounding fellow passenger Governor John Connally with just three rounds.

It was asserted that  one bullet had passed through Kennedy before hitting Connally.

But sceptics call  this fanciful and have dubbed it “the magic bullet theory”.
