I have revisited the topic.
Starting with the Wiki page where I found quite a piece:
"An alternative theory suggests that Weiss was actually unarmed, and had punched Long, not shot him. Instead, the senator was struck by a stray bullet from his bodyguards, who shot Weiss because they mistakenly believed that Weiss was going to shoot Long. One who takes this view is former Louisiana state police superintendent Francis Grevemberg."
I've red Warren's book again. And watched the movies, all three of them.
It seems to me Long's assassination was as complicated as Kennedy's.
Some called him a "fascist". He was as much left as any US Governor ever was, that's true, but he was not a "fascist" per se.
He did care about the poor, and that's why the rich hated him.
And quite possibly killed him and never got discovered.
Just using Jack Burden's ways would be interesting to find out who benefited from the Longs assassination.
