NEW YORK (AP) - For years, curiosity seekers visiting the Fort Worth, Texas, grave of Lee Harvey Oswald have wondered about the simple headstone next door, marked Nick Beef.

It turns out Nick Beef is alive and living in New York.

The New York Times reports that the 56-year-old man who uses that name purchased the cemetery plot next to Oswald's in 1975 and had the granite marker placed there in 1997.

Beef was born Patric Abedin. He lives in Manhattan and calls himself a nonperforming performance artist.

He says that as a child, he was in the crowd in Fort Worth when President John F. Kennedy arrived Nov. 21, 1963, for a two-day tour.

Oswald shot Kennedy the next day.

Beef says he bought the gravesite because it meant something to him.
