The Long, Strange Battle Over Lee Harvey Oswald's Tombstone

The N.Y. Times describes the surprising legal battle to establish ownership over Lee Harvey Oswald's tombstone:

In the nearly 50 years since Mr. Oswald, the presumed assassin of President John F. Kennedy, was buried in Texas, the grave marker has been stolen from a cemetery, recovered by the police, hidden away for safekeeping, and passed around among distant relatives of the family that bought the home of Mr. Oswald’s mother after she died.
