H.L. Hunt, John Curington, and me...

      A man named John Curington spent a number of years as attorney and right-hand-man to Dallas oil billionaire H.L. Hunt, and today he is probably one of the last men standing from the assassinations of JFK, MLK, and RFK... and he has finally decided to tell his story.

Hi. My name is Mitchel Whitington, and I make my living working in the publishing industry and writing regional books - mainly about history, folklore, and the supernatural. It's my little niche in the world. I've never given a lot of thought to the Kennedy assassination, certainly not MLK or RFK, and never, ever envisioned writing a book about the whole conspiracy thing. In the spring of 2017, though, my phone rang and this elderly fellow said, "I understand that you're a writer." I cautiously answered in the affirmative, and he said, "Good. I'm looking for someone to help me write my story."

Now, I get this call every so often. People are convinced that they have a wonderful story to tell. Trust me, they don't. I was already starting to try to get this guy off the phone, saying, "You know, that's just not the kind of thing that I do. But good luck with your project, and..."

He interrupted. "My name is John Curington, and I was the right-hand man to H.L. Hunt in the 1960s. I think that he had something to do with the deaths of JFK, Martin Luther King, RFK, and Jimmy Hoffa." I digested that for a moment, and then said, "You have my complete attention."

I have worked with John Curington over the past year to write his story, and the new book H.L. Hunt: Motive and Opportunity has recently been released. I believe John's information sheds a light on Hunt's possible involvement in the murders that has never been described before. Recently, the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas (the repository for JFK assassination information) added a video interview with John Curington to its permanent archives after hearing about his story.

John's story includes:

After spending all these months with him, interviewing him and writing his story, I believe that he means no ill will toward H.L. Hunt - or "Mr. Hunt" as he still calls him. I believe that it this point in his life, he just wants to make sure that his story is told. To me one of the most compelling things about it is that John does not have a smoking gun or a solution to the murders. Instead, he has integral pieces of the puzzle that have not been told before. No matter what you believe about the JFK, MLK or RFK assassinations, you will find this book compelling.

John is quite an interesting guy - that's him on the left; I've never seen him without a Stetson, pearl-snap shirt, western vest, starched jeans, and cowboy boots. It would often give me pause to consider that I was sitting across the table from a man who at one time could pick up the phone and get J. Edgar Hoover or LBJ on the other end without hesitation... someone who has played poker with some of the most powerful men in the world, guys that most of us only know from history books... a fellow who routinely got on an airplane with a briefcase carrying what in our time would be a million dollars, bound for a rendevouz representing H.L. Hunt, who was the richest man in the world at the time. What a guy, right?
