Former FBI Agent Who Investigated Oswald Dies

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The FBI agent who many blamed for not investigating Lee Harvey Oswald more closely before President John F. Kennedy's assassination has died.

Funeral services for James P. Hosty Jr. were held Saturday in the Kansas City suburb of Roeland Park, Kan.

McGilley and Hoge Johnson County Memorial Chapel said on its website that Hosty died June 10 of cancer at Kansas City Hospice House in Kansas City, Mo. He was 86.

Many questioned Hosty's investigation of Oswald. But Hosty said in a 2003 interview with The Kansas City Star that there was nothing he could have done to prevent the assassination given what he knew at the time.

He was appointed to help lead the FBI's post-assassination investigation and later wrote the book "Assignment: Oswald."
