44 Years Later, a Washington, D.C. Death Unresolved [Lance Morrow – Smithsonian Magazine]
Mary Pinchot Meyer’s murdered body was discovered on the banks of a canal in Georgetown, an affluent Washington D.C. community, in 1964. Meyer was a bohemian and artist, mistress of John F. Kennedy, friend of Jackie Kennedy, and ex-wife of Cord Meyer, known then as a wounded World War II hero, idealist, and author, with a vague government job. Now, we know he managed the CIA’s clandestine services. In 2008, her murder was still a mystery.
