Hundreds of previously classified documents surrounding the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy were released Wednesday.
President Joe Biden ordered the release of 1,500 previously classified CIA documents included in the investigation.
Stephen Fagin, a curator at the Sixth Floor Museum in Dealey Plaza in Dallas, says it's always a moment of excitement when more information is released.
One document referred to a telephone call where the source stated that Lee Harvey Oswald met with a KGB agent two months prior to the assassination.
Conspiracies about the assassination are still around and Fagin says at the height of the Cold War, there an expectation that Russia or Cuba could be involved.
Biden says he will release more documents next December.
"I know the research community is certainly eager to get as many of these documents released and unredacted as possible," Fagin says.
