FBI Releases Ted Kennedy Files

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has released a batch of files on the late Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy, many of which are threats to the senator going back to just after the 1968 murder of his brother, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy.

In the heaps of threatening letters and notes about threatening letters, there are several files on the drowning of Mary Jo Kopechne in July of 1969, including this copy of the original teletype:teletypekopechne.jpg
