Jim Marrs, the author whose book Crossfire: The Plot to Kill Kennedy helped inspire the Oliver Stone movie JFK, died of a heart attack Wednesday at his Wise County home.
In March 2017, an announcement was made on Marrs’ official Facebook page about an unspecified illness that caused him to cancel appearances at two upcoming events, the 5th annual Out of this World UFO Conference in Edinburg, Texas, and the Free Your Mind Conference in Philadelphia, both in April.
On June 24th he wrote “Howdy Friends! This site will be suspended for a time while my health issues are being addressed. The links to pages, books, DVD’s will remain active. Please monitor this site for future developments. I welcome your support and well wishes and look forward to communicating with you in the future.” Jim Marrs
Marrs, 73, who worked as a Star-Telegram reporter between 1968 to 1980, didn’t just write about John F. Kennedy. He also authored books about everything from UFOs to population control.
Marrs also taught courses on the JFK assassination and UFOs at the University of Texas at Arlington before retiring in 2007.
His perspective on UFOs, ““There’s definitely something out there in the air,” he said. “But I don’t think there’s anything to fear here.”
“I just remember how funny he was,” Carol Marrs said. “I don’t think about the conspiracy part, although he was an excellent teacher. His mission in life was to pursue the truth.”
Among his books were “Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy,” which reached The New York Times paperback nonfiction best seller list. Other titles include: “Alien Agenda” (1997); “Rule by Secrecy” (2000); “The Terror Conspiracy Revisited” (2007); “The Rise of the Fourth Reich” (2008); “The Trillion-Dollar Conspiracy” (2010); “Our Occulted History” (2013); “Population Control” (2015); and his last book, “The Illuminati” (2017).

Mr. Marrs has won several writing and photography awards including the Aviation/Aerospace Writer’s Association’s National Writing Award and Newsmaker of the Year Award from the Fort Worth Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. In 1993, Mr. Marrs received Freedom Magazine’s Human Rights Leadership Award.
Mr. Marrs has appeared on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, CSPAN, the Discovery, Learning and History Channels, This Morning America, Geraldo, Montel Williams, Today, Tech TV and The Larry King, George Noory and Art Bell radio programs along with numerous national and regional radio and TV shows.
