8. A few corrections.
There's no evidence Jack Ruby was in the mob, or a leader of it. He was friends with two guys who were suspected of working for a Mafia boss.

Second, on his deathbed Ruby formally stated that he alone was responsible for Oswald's death, no one else. This would seem to imply that his earlier statement to the effect that the world would never know the true facts of the case was based on speculation or guesswork on his part, rather than certain knowledge.

Dorothy Kilgallen died of a combination of barbituates and alcohol at the age of 52. Her husband was home at the time and reported nothing unusual.
