A handwritten condolence letter written by Jackie Kennedy to her sister-in-law Ethel Kennedy after the 1968 assassination of Ethel's husband, Robert Kennedy, was removed in August from Heritage Auction Galleries by the FBI. The letter has gone through many hands in the last 10 years, but it may have been stolen long ago from Ethel Kennedy's home in Virginia. The letter is valued in the thousands of dollars. Heritage held the letter for three years waiting for a decision about who owned it--the Kennedy family or the consigner. Now the FBI has stepped in.
