Episode 67 temporarily interrupts our current series on the autopsy and allows us to pay tribute to John Fitzgerald Kennedy on the 58th anniversary of the assassination. We stop and spend a minute exploring the greatness of this man, instead of exploring the assassination itself. We will return to (and and continue) the story of the autopsy later this week as more facts and interesting tales are coming , along with their implications for the credibility of the Warren Commission Report and the lone gunman theory. Join us then for fifth episode on the autopsy and the fantastic goings on that encompass this part of the JFK story.
There is more direct forensics to come in this series of forensics episodes. Stay tuned, and eventually we'll explore more of the physical evidence involving use and ownership of the Mannlicher Carcano rifle and evidence recovered from the Presidential limousine, as well as damage done to the vehicle.
Our episodes have now begun to explore an array of matters that dive into a deeper darkness related to what went on that day in Dallas and in the period before and after the assassination. Matters that possibly point to a wider and more sinister plot to kill the president and that clearly call into question the theory that there was a lone assassin. Complex cases without an eyewitness that can actually identify the shooter make the forensic and circumstantial evidence that much more important. Ironically, problems abound with much of the evidence in this case. Evidence that is complex, incomplete and sometimes conflicting.
Even as early as 1964, rumors and serious concerns over the lone gunman theory and the evidence that might contravene it, were becoming a major concern for the government and the commission. Conspiracy theories were contrary to the government's stated narrative from the very beginning. Stay tuned as there are many more episodes to come!
