FORT WORTH, Texas — Lee Harvey Oswald's brother is suing a funeral home and an auction house after the presidential assassin's coffin was sold.
The casket contained Oswald's body until it was exhumed in 1981 amid conspiracy theories. Another coffin was used for the reburial.
Robert L. Oswald says he didn't know the first casket still existed until he heard last year that it was being auctioned off with other items.
The lawsuit filed in Fort Worth last week seeks unspecified damages, including proceeds from the auction that raked in more than $160,000. An anonymous bidder agreed to pay nearly $87,500 for the coffin.
