LAS VEGAS -- Haunting questions about the assassination of President John Kennedy will be raised and explored on Friday, Jan. 31 when a panel of the best known JFK researchers meet at UNLV.

The event, dubbed "The Last Word on the JFK Assassination" is open to the public and will also be carried live on the Internet. It's being produced by filmmaker and former television host John Barbour of Henderson.

Barbour's documentary film "The Garrison Tapes" will be shown in its entirety and then the panelists will interact with the audience.

Garrison was the district attorney of New Orleans who tried to prove that government intelligence agents were involved in Kennedy's murder.

Barbour hopes the event will bring more attention to Garrison's story.

"Well, for me, it would be an immense relief to know it's out there, that Jim's story is out there, for his family, for the world, for his children. That's enough for me. I guess maybe it will be an historic event because 50 years from now, the only two films that will mean anything to this case will be the Zapruder film and the Garrison tapes. He's the only person who looked into it and tried to bring someone to trial," Barbour said.

Among the other panelists is writer Jim Marrs, whose book about the JFK murder was used as the basis for director Oliver Stone's theatrical movie on JFK. The Friday evening event is free to the public and will also be viewable online.
