Like everything else surrounding the JFK assassination, there is irony and interesting stories regarding Oswald's grave in the Rose Hill Cemetery near Ft. Worth, as well. The stone itself is marked "OSWALD" and nothing else, no first name, no date of birth or death. Next to Oswald's grave, there is a stone marked "NICK BEEF". A comedian purchased the plot and put his stage name on the stone for a joke, and as a clever way to help his fans find Oswald's grave. However, the cemetery staff learned of this, and will not divulge the location of either grave to the public. The next closest grave to Oswald is Ruby Hays. We thought this to be ironic, as Oswald was killed by a man named Jack Ruby. It was also strange to notice a shell casing on Oswald's grave being used as a vase for a small flower. Was someone unsure whether Oswald was guilty or innocent, and didn't know whether to plant a bullet or a flower in his grave?
