One-Time Home Of JFK Assassin Torn Down

DALLAS (January 14, 2013)—The Dallas apartment building where Lee Harvey Oswald lived for a few months before the assassination of President John F. Kennedy was razed Monday.

A few onlookers braved the cold Monday as bulldozer began knocking down the 10-unit building, which was erected in 1925.

The residence was one of several in the area where Oswald lived after returning to the U.S. from Russia in June 1962.

He lived in the apartment from November 1962 to March 1963.

The president was slain Nov. 22, 1963.

The apartment is mentioned in the Warren Commission report, which investigated the president's death and concluded Oswald acted alone.

The demolition came after the dilapidated, uninhabited two-story apartment complex was declared a nuisance.
