Mystery of grave next to Oswald’s solved

For years, curiosity seekers visiting the Fort Worth, Texas, grave of Lee Harvey Oswald have wondered about the simple headstone next door, marked Nick Beef.

It turns out Nick Beef is alive and living in New York. The New York Times reported that the 56-year-old man who uses that name bought the cemetery plot next to Oswald’s in 1975 and had the granite marker placed there in 1997. Beef, born Patric Abedin, now lives in Manhattan and calls himself a “non-performing performance artist”.

Beef, then six years old, was in the crowd in Fort Worth on November 21, 1963, when President John F. Kennedy and his wife, Jacqueline, came to visit as part of a two-day Texas tour. Oswald allegedly shot Kennedy the next day.
