Hundreds of never-before-seen documents related to the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy were released by the National Archives on Monday.

The treasure trove of records, which include tape recordings and interview transcripts, are sure to fuel the theories of assassination buffs who say the nation’s 35th president was the victim of a secret conspiracy and not just a lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald.

Among the highlights of the 3,800 records, 441 of which have never been released to the public, are:

  • Interviews with Yuri Nosenko, a former KGB agent who defected to the U.S. in 1964 and said he was in charge of a KGB file on Oswald when the future assassin lived in the Soviet Union.
  • Documents that refer to the probe into the 1968 assassination of Martin Luther King which occurred five years after JFK’s death.
  • 3,369 documents previously released with portions redacted, but many are now made whole.
  • The National Archives is expected to release more JFK-related material later this year.

The agency is in the process of releasing more than five-million pages of information, following 1992 legislation that all intelligence surrounding the assassination be preserved.

Kennedy was shot dead on Nov. 22nd, 1963, as he rode in an open-air limo in Dallas, Texas.

Oswald was arrested, but then murdered two days later by nightclub owner Jack Ruby. The FBI and the Warren Commission concluded that Oswald carried out the killing alone.
