Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
, widow of President, John F. Kennedy, believed that Vice President, Lyndon B. Johnson, along with a group of Texas oil tycoons, was part of the conspiracy
to assassinate her husband in 1963.
This accusation was issued on a series of tapes that were recorded by historian Arthur Schlesinger within months of Kennedy's assassination and had been sealed in a vault at the Kennedy Library in Boston, MA.
Kennedy Onassis, who passed away in 1994, had ordered that the tapes not be released until 50 years after her death. However, daughter, Caroline, gave permission for them to be released earlier.
The tapes also reportedly reveal that Kennedy Onassis had an affair with actor William Holden, while Kennedy was still president.
is planning a special program about these tapes to be aired next month.
