Frequently Asked Questions
Answered by book author Mitchel Whitington
Q: Who is John Curington?
A: John is an attorney, and during the 1960s was the right-hand man to oil billionaire H.L. Hunt. It's during that time that JFK was assassinated, along with Martin Luther King, and Bobby Kennedy. For many years John as been off the grid and flying under the radar. He's been a private-practice attorney, an ostrich rancher, and basically stayed out of the national public eye. He doesn't have a Facebook page, isn't on Wikipedia, and doesn't have a social media presence.
Q: What is this new book all about?
A: Call it a memoir, call it an exposť, call it whatever you'd like, but it is basically the story of John Curington's years with H.L. Hunt, and the strange things that he saw that seem to connect Hunt to the murders of JFK, MLK, and RFK.
Q: Why is he coming forward now?
A: I believe that at this point in his life, John simply wants his story told. He is one of the last men standing from the assassinations of JFK, MLK, and RFK. As he's told me many times, "I don't want to convince anyone of anything - I just want to tell my story."
Q: Does he have proof of the things that he's said?
A: There are some photocopies of documents and such, but for the most part, these are just stories from his past. I don't have a problem with that - a number of years ago, I was a software engineer for a telecom company in the north Dallas area. I wrote the entire SCCP layer of the SS7 protocol, and one of our major customers was Sprint. That means that if you sent a data message from your cell phone in the Dallas area, for many years you were actually running through code that I wrote. Can I prove that? No way; it was just my job at the time. I could have printed off copies of all the program elements, saved copies of my paychecks, taken photos, but it would have never occurred to me to do so... and so it is with John. For him, it was very routine for H.L. Hunt to have him get on an airplane with a briefcase full of money and deliver it to a specified person.
Q: Does the book point to the trigger-man for each of the murders?
A: Not at all... John's stories are merely pieces of a puzzle, and after all, John Curington never witnessed the assassinations. He wasn't on the grassy knoll, across the street from the Lorraine Motel, or in the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel. But he did see strange meetings, financial payoffs, and things that anyone with an interest in these events will find unbelievably fascinating. I can hardly wait to read how all the various conspiracy theorists plug these stories into their individual solutions to the murders... and they do fit well!
Q: What do you think is the most dramatic aspect of the book?
A: Wow, this is a tough one. I think that for me, one of the opening stories of the book sets the tone. After JFK orchestrated the removal of H.L. Hunt from the New York 1964 World's Fair, Hunt turned to John Curington and said, "Iíve about got a bellyful of those Kennedy boys. They both need to go." A few months later, JFK would be dead, followed by his brother Bobby in just a few years. That's a very powerful story!
