Karyn Kupcinet (March 6, 1941 – November 28, 1963) was an American stage, film, and television actress. She was the only daughter of Chicago columnist and television personality Irv Kupcinet.
Kupcinet had a brief acting career during the early 1960s. Six days after the JFK assassination, her body was found at her West Hollywood, California, home. It has been theorized that Kupcinet’s death, officially ruled a homicide, was connected to the assassination or was the result of an accidental fall. In the 1960s, Irv Kupcinet publicly dismissed the theories linking his daughter to the President’s death. In 1992, The Today Show referred briefly to her alleged connection to the assassination, which prompted Kupcinet to describe the television broadcast as “an atrocious outrage” and “calumny”. Karyn Kupcinet’s death remains officially unsolved.
