Some 50 years after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, questions still remain about his accused killer Lee Harvey Oswald.

The Warren Commission never established a motive for Oswald. In 1964 the group established he was the lone gunman despite that he went to Russia and that he had a loose connection with pro-Fidel Castro supporters, according to the Associated Press.

The Warren Commission concluded that Oswald "was moved by an overriding hostility to his environment."

"He does not appear to have been able to establish meaningful relationships with other people. He was perpetually discontented with the world around him. Long before the assassination he expressed his hatred for American society and acted in protest against it," the group said.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said in January said his father, who was later assassinated while running for president in 1968, was never confident in the Warren Commission's conclusions, according to the Dallas Morning News. 

"My father believed that the Warren Commission report was a shoddy piece of craftsmanship," Kennedy Jr. said at a Dallas program looking back at JFK's death earlier this year, expressing his own pro-conspiracy thoughts.

The Associated Press wrote that Oswald defected to Russia in 1959 at the height of the Cold War. Russia initially rejected him but eventually allowed him to stay and work in Minsk, where he met his wife Marina Prusakova in 1961, who was a pharmacology student at the time. In May 1962, Oswald left Russia with his wife and the couple's child after expressing concerns about life there. The couple settled in Dallas in the fall of that year.

In April 1963, seven months before Kennedy's assassination, Oswald left for New Orleans and spent the summer printing and distributing flyers supporting Castro, even though the address to the leaflets led to a local anti-Castro group associated with a former FBI agent. During that time Oswald tried, but failed, to get clearance to travel back to Russia via Cuba through the countries' embassies in Mexico City.

Some experts say that answers to those connections may lie in hundreds of still-classified pages of the JFK investigation. Jefferson Morley, a former Washington Post reporter, told the Associated Press in August there are no reasonable reasons for the pages to remain sealed.
