Mary Pinchot Meyer was an American journalist and painter who became famous for her alleged affair with the former US president John F Kennedy. As a journalist, Mary wrote for ‘Mademoiselle,’ the ‘United Press,’ and ‘The Atlantic Monthly.’ She began painting after she decided to become a homemaker. Her art was selected to be part of the ‘Pan American Union Art Exhibit’ at the ‘Museum of Modern Art’ in Buenos Aires. She got married to Cord Meyer, an official of the ‘Central Intelligence Agency’ (CIA), in 1945. It was after her divorce that rumors of her affair with Kennedy started surfacing. In June 2016, a love letter said to have been written by Kennedy to Meyer was auctioned for $89,000. Meyer was shot dead by a hitman in 1964, while she was on her daily walk. Her murder remains an unsolved mystery to date. A lot of speculations were made on her death. Many people still believe that the ‘CIA’ was involved in her murder, since she was always critical about the agency. Ray Crump, Jr., the accused, was acquitted in July 1965.
