What is strange is that all those witnesses did not get erased years before, and some even more ?dangerous ? did not even get at least one attempt done on them!

Here is the list of suspicious, convenient deaths, quite long indeed:

Convenient Deaths
1963 - 1976
Many witnesses died in the thirteen year period following the assassination - mostly of unnatural causes. Many rumours crawl around about the high death rate during these years. They are supported by the mostly suspicious circumstances the victims died under. For a unknown shooter or even shooters, all these deaths have one thing in common: they are very convenient to those assassins since these witnesses took their knowledge with them into the grave. But see yourself and decide whether these deaths are purely coincidently:
Asterisks mark death that seemed to happen under suspicious circumstances.
