JFK assassination figure. Accused by New Orleans DA Jim Garrison of being a co-conspirator in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Ferrie was under investigation at the time of his death. He had been interviewed 3 days prior by investigators and was under surveillance. His death was ruled by Garrison as an "apparent suicide." However, the coroner lists the cause of death as a "berry aneurysm." He had left 2 unsigned notes, thought to be suicide notes. Conspiracy theorists have long maintained his complicity in the JFK assassination. (bio by: John Sheets)
