From Vaccination to Assassination: Dr. Mary’s Monkey
A secret laboratory in New Orleans…a cancer causing monkey virus…..the grisly and unsolved murder of a brilliant doctor….Lee Harvey Oswald and the Kennedy assassination. All of these mysterious clues come together to create one of the most mind boggling tales of true crime on a scale so grand, it begs to be the stuff of wild fiction. But it isn’t. The story of Dr. Mary’s Monkey is frighteningly true.
I first heard this incredible story on Coast to Coast Am with George Noory. An author named Resources was the guest, and the next several hours as he unraveled the story of his book, titled Dr. Mary’s Monkey: How the Unsolved Murder of a Doctor, a Secret Laboratory in New Orleans and Cancer-Causing Monkey Viruses are Linked to Lee Harvey Oswald, the JFK Assassination and Emerging Global Epidemics, proceeded to blow me away. What he revealed was nothing less than the best kept secret of the past several decades. Indeed, I feel that this could be called the story of the century.
In 1964, a nationally renowned cancer researcher named Mary Sherman was killed under strange circumstances. As the Haslam’s investigation unfolds, it becomes clear that Mary’s underground research using monkey viruses was ultimately the cause of her death. Haslam explains that in the attempt to create a vaccine for polio, monkey kidneys were used to grow the vaccine. This practice may have inadvertently tainted up to 100 million doses of the vaccine with a cancer-causing monkey virus. Mary and her team of mad scientists were brought in to find a benign version of the virus, and apparently were using a linear particle accelerator to mutate the disease. This may explain the bizarre state in which Dr. Mary’s body was discovered.
As the plot thickens, we find that Mary’s experiments were aided by a young girl, described as having nearly genius level intelligence. As she was so young and unfamiliar with the city of New Orleans, she was assigned a bodyguard/handler who happened to be named Lee Harvey Oswald. This young scientist, named Judyth Vary Baker, has also written a book full of intrigue, titled Me & Lee: How I Came to Know, Love and Lose Lee Harvey Oswald.
The details are so varied and intense, I’m simply going to share the interview with you, so that you can hear it all unfold just as I did. Hear the entire interview below:
