Dorothy Kilgallen was a newspaper gossip columnist and “What’s My Line” game show panelist.
After an exclusive interview with Jack Ruby, Lee Harvey Oswald’s killer, she announced that she was going to blow the lid off of John F. Kennedy’s shooting in Dallas. Later, Kilgallen was found dead inside her Manhattan townhouse.
Many doubters believe it was murder made to look like a drug overdose.
Prior to her death, Kilgallen told friends she was about to break the biggest story of her career.
Instead it ended up costing her her life.
