Transcript of JFK

John F. Kennedy While on a political trip in Texas on November 22, 1963 President Kennedy was shot in the back and killed with a shot to the head. He was taken to Parkland Hospital and pronounced dead at 1:00pm on the same day. He was said to have been assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald who was at the time employed at the Texas School Book Depository, the same place where the shots are thought to have been fired. He was taken into custody but denied killing the Kennedy. Oswald was shot by Jack Roby before he could be tried or indicted in court. Evidence The Kennedy Assassination Evidence JFK's head wounds
Small entrance wound found in rear near EOP.
Beveled inward (wound was larger on inner surface).
Large, irregular exit wound found on upper right rear, in occipitoparietal area.
A part of one of three large pieces of skull from the exit wound was beveled outward (wound was larger on outer surface)
No damage to left hemisphere. Evidence JFK's body wounds
No bullet remained in body.
Entrance wound in upper back/shoulder, 14 cm down from tip of right mastoid process and 14 cm left of tip of right shoulder joint.
Small wound in throat could be either of entrance or exit; extended and distorted by tracheotomy.
Line of damaged tissues from back/shoulder wound to throat wound: damage to the right neck muscles, the top of the right lung, right pleura, and the "fascia about the trachea" near the wound in the trachea.
Downward angle along the line of damage from back to front was similar to the 17 degrees from the Depository. Evidence JFK's clothing
One hole each in back of shirt and jacket. They aligned with each other.
Fibers of each bent forward.
Nick in left side of tie; fibers not bent in any consistent direction.
Two irregular slits in front of shirt right under button and button hole. Fibers around both slits were bent forward.
Holes in back of shirt and jacket fall inches below the entrance wound.
JFK's jacket (and probably his shirt as well) was bunched inches upward just before he was hit. President Kennedy was struck by two rifle shots fired from behind him.
The shots that struck President Kennedy from behind him were fired from the sixth floor window of the southeast corner of the Texas School Book Depository building.
Lee Harvey Oswald owned the rifle that was used to fire the shots from the sixth floor window of the southeast comer of the Texas School Book Depository building.
Lee Harvey Oswald, shortly before the assassination, had access to and was present on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository building.
Lee Harvey Oswald's other actions tend to support the conclusion that he assassinated President Kennedy. Videos On the sixth floor of the TSBD
Three cartridge cases were found near the window at the southeast corner. They were all from Oswald's MC rifle
Oswald's rifle was found on the sixth floor near the stairway in the northwest corner.
His fingerprint and palm print were on it.
No one else's prints were on it.
His palm print was on one of the cartons at the SE window. No one else's prints were on any cartons.
No other rifle or cartridges found.
A large brown paper bag, the right size to hold the disassembled rifle, was found next to the SE window. It had Oswald's fingerprint and right palm print on it, and was fashioned from the same paper and tape as was in the shipping room of the Depository.
