On September 24, 1964, an eight hundred and eighty-nine page report, titled The Warren Report, was presented to President Johnson and released to the public three days later. The report concluded that the bullets that killed Kennedy and injured Connally were fired in three shots by Lee Harvey Oswald from a rifle pointed out of a sixth-floor window in the Texas School Book Depository (Warren 61). Oswald’s life, including a visit he made to the Soviet Union, was described in detail, but the report made no attempt to analyze his motives (Russell 43).
