DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The national spotlight has turned away from Dallas after last week’s 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. As the city prepared for a remembrance ceremony held on Friday, the Xs on Elm Street were removed from the ground, as the roadway was repaved.

Those white marks indicated the locations where JFK was shot. Many people were appalled to discover that the marks had disappeared. But sometime either late Monday night or early Tuesday morning, one X has returned.

It is not yet known who put the X back in front of the old School Book Depository at Dealey Plaza. In fact, the marks were never painted there by the city, nor does the city know who routinely places them on the road. Though, there has been debate about their accuracy.
