She says she dated Lee Harvey Oswald in New Orleans.  This week, Judyth Vary Baker returned to the city for the first time in more than a decade to talk about her relationship with the man accused of killing President John F. Kennedy.

Baker led a tour of sites she says are important to the story in the months leading up to the assassination.  She says Oswald was a hero and did not kill Kennedy.

November 22nd will mark the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination.

“It should mean a lot.  It’s the day that somebody else took over our government and changed it.  And they did it because they could get rid of a president who was in their way,” Baker said of the anniversary.

She also signed copies of her book, Me and Lee.  Baker plans to speak at a symposium this Saturday morning at Loyola University.
