The assassination of President John F. Kennedy remains mired in countless conspiracy theories. Many maintain that assassin Lee Harvey Oswald was innocent, a pawn in a greater conspiracy theory. Joining this chorus of voices is Oswald's former girlfriend, Judyth Vary Baker who insists that one of America's preeminent villains was in fact an innocent intelligence officer. 

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - In her new memoir, "Lee and Me: How I Came To Know, Love, And Lose Lee Harvey Oswald," Baker argues that Oswald could not have murdered the 35th President of the United States in Dealy Plaza that cold day in November of 1963.

"Lee Oswald was a hero," Baker began at her presentation at an Oregon bookstore earlier this month. "I'm here to tell you that when you find out who did it, you will understand more about who took over our country and why we are in the position we are in today."

Baker says she lives abroad due to what she claims are safety concerns. She's currently on a limited tour that lasts until December to promote her book. She also plans to make several appearances via Skype.

The prodigious Baker conducted complicated cancer research in New Orleans in the early 1960s while 19 years of age. "I was assigned to make cancer more deadly," she told reporters. "Can you imagine?"

Baker met Oswald in 1963 during this internship working under Dr. Alton Ochsner, the former president of the American Cancer Society, and they became lovers.
"I was his lover," she remembered, while not elaborating on their trysts. "I loved him and he loved me and I believe that with all my heart."

Oswald, she explained, was part of the Ochsner project. According to the book, the cancer research helmed by Ochsner was tied to efforts to bring down Cuba's then-president Fidel Castro through biological means, injecting the guerrilla leader with a fast-spreading cancer.

Oswald also told Baker of the Kennedy assassination plot from conversations they had up to two days before November 23, 1963.

In her 600-page book, Baker argues that her then-boyfriend was a deeply undercover intelligence agent who was actually trying to prevent Kennedy from being killed.

Baker is of the popular opinion in conspiracy circles that Oswald could not have committed from his sniper post at the Texas Book Depository.

"We have a lot of information that Kennedy was shot from the front"' noting that the book depository was behind Kennedy's motorcade.

Baker says that there was a conspiracy against Oswald from the beginning. "They arrest him; they say he's from Russia."

Baker says the last words she ever heard Oswald say to her were on phone call when he ended with: "I love you, Judyth," two days before Oswald himself was shot dead outside of Dallas' police headquarters.

Next year marks the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's death.
