Brad Meltzer's Decoded - The Lincoln Assassination

The Lincoln Assassination" December 23, 2010
Brad Meltzer and his Decoded team examine claims that John Wilkes Booth actually
escaped to freedom after murdering President Abraham Lincoln in 1865. The
"official" version of events says federal agents cornered Booth and killed him
just days after the assassination. But Brad and the team uncover glaring
inconsistencies in that 150-year-old account: Why did the authorities hide
Booth's body from public view? Why was Booth autopsy's conducted in complete
secrecy in the cramped confines of an ironclad gunboat? Searching for answers to
these and other troubling questions, the team finds startling evidence that
strongly suggests Booth may indeed have lived into old age without ever facing
punishment for his crime.
