  1. You can read all three sections clearly at the link below without having to join or sign up for anything: https://kauilapele.wordpress.com/2014/04/13/kp-note-3-documents-you-may-want-to-read-from-the-astounding-conspiracy-theories-of-wall-street-genius-mark-gorton/
  2. Nice graphics and explanation, Andrej. Well then, using your 3D modeling technique, would it be possible to do something like the following? Use the official photo of CE139 as a baseline, and manipulate the TSBD rifle-photo to see if there is, or is not, a certain perspective where the two rifle images align? Tom
  3. Hi Alberto, Your demonstration appears impressive but I have some concerns. You have, of course, reversed the TSBD image to make the comparison, but we don’t know if either photo was taken with the rifle exactly at right angles to the camera. How would a possible difference in perspective affect the outcome? The two photos were surely taken with different cameras, with possible differing amounts of lens distortion, and the two photos were taken from unknown distances from the rifles. Could any of these factors, or variables I haven’t thought of, affect the outcome of your interesting comparison? Tom P.S. If you link your photos to Photobucket or something, everyone can see them.
  4. Alberto, could you please draw a circle around the “POMMEL” on the TSBD photo you posted? Thanks, Tom
  5. I'll hazard a comment, Michael: Nice GIFs and well presented. You wrote: “In 1967 a guy (Cappel I think his name is) recreated the BYP and he actually did a pretty good job.” This leaves me wanting to know more about “Cappel” (or whatever his name is). While I’m here, I’ll comment some more. I’m pursuing the hypothesis that the BYP are a puzzle, just one of many, created by Oswald and his small band of good-guys. They called themselves “ICO” (“Igor”, “Case”, “Oswald”, and they had at least one civilian recruit, Wesley Frazier). According to this hypothesis, the BYP puzzle was created in response to Oswald’s assignment (by Ferrie, Banister, Phillips, Hoover, et al) to buy a mail order rifle and revolver and have his picture taken with these (Oswald’s patsy bona fides). Oswald and company then produced a set of photos (possibly four in all) that were designed around naturally occurring anagrams that could reveal ICO’s stunt, a 3-D image of Wesley Frazier’s body with Lee Oswald’s head attached. There are several puzzling anomalies in the set of pictures, one being Oswald’s tilt. When CE133A and 133C are straightened, Oswald is swaying 4 degrees to his right. “Lee Harvey Oswald” anagrams to: “LHO SWAY REVEALED” As others have done, Michael pointed out that Oswald’s head looks too large. “Lee Harvey Oswald” anagrams to: “O, A VERY SWELL HEAD” My hypothesis suggests that Lee’s head was pasted on Wesley Frazier’s body. “Lee Harvey Oswald” anagrams to: “L HEAD OVERLAY WES” and, “H LAD OVER WESLEY” And it’s Lee’s head which bears the “V” shaped shadow. “Lee Harvey Oswald anagrams to: “LEE RELAY ‘V’ SHADOW” And it’s Wesley brandishing the rifle. “Lee Harvey Oswald” anagrams to: “WESLEY HAVE A L ROD” And it’s Wesley’s body in CE133A and 133C that has a half of a letter “O” visible on the fence near Wesley’s left knee. “Lee Harvey Oswald” anagrams to: WES RELAY HALVED “O” I think that the “V” shadow and the “halved ‘O’” are the alignment points for properly sizing CE133A and 133C. When these two photos are properly sized and aligned, and rotated 88 degrees to the right, we get a 3-D set, a 3-D view of Lee’s back yard, Wesley’s body with four arms, and a dandy view of Oswald’s head in 3-D. “Lee Harvey Oswald” anagrams to: “LAYER WES HALVED ‘O’” and, “LAYER LEE ‘V’ SHADOW” And another anagram of “Lee Harvey Oswald” combines the two above: “LAYER WES ‘O’, L HEAD ‘V’” I believe this stereoscopic image was taken with Oswald’s tripod-mounted Stereo Realist camera, which was rotated 88 degrees to the right (Marina’s one picture was just for show). The 3-D image was meant to be viewed with a “Stereoscope”, a common item even today, that requires a pair of square images mounted on a 7 inch card. (Note: The number “88”, and its factors ((1, 2, 4, 11, 22, 44, 88)) are very important in the ICO puzzle system. For example, “Historic Diary” anagrams to “Richard’s ’88’ Toy”, and there are “88” puzzles in the diary, “44” in quotation marks, and “44” in parentheses. The label on the “Undeliverable Package” contains “44” letters. “A HIDELL” when translated to numbers equals “44”, etc.) I can’t say much more about the BYP or what appears to be a vast ICO puzzle system without getting into actual puzzle solving and introducing decoding keys (one simple key at bottom of post). Maybe someday I’ll get to a point where I can properly present my hypothesis, but for now it’s a work in progress. I’m not very good at puzzles, nor am I much interested in them. ICO’s puzzle system, however, got my attention because I strongly suspect these three guys actually did this, I suspect that there’s more too this than the ravings of a crazy old man (some may think that’s me). Tom ICO’s common method for translating letters to numbers and vice versa: (A=0)(B=1)(C=2)(D=3)(E=4)(F=5)(G=6)(H=7)(I=8)(J=9)(K=10)(L=11)(M=12)(N=13)(O=14)(P=15)(Q=16)(R=17)(S=18)(T=19)(U=20)(V=21)(W=22)(X=23)(Y=24)(Z=25)
  6. All very fascinating! Does anyone know why James Richards (Feb 24, 2006 post) suggested that “Ruth Ann” is possibly Richard Case Nagell’s contact, “Maria del Carmen”?
  7. Last Friday, Michael Walton asked Jeff Carter, “By the way are you the author of the essay on the fake backyard photos? I’m reading that now and you did a great job.” I’m off topic but I agree, “a great job”. Below are the links to Jeff Carter’s set of five articles on the backyard photos: https://kennedysandking.com/john-f-kennedy-articles/a-new-look-at-the-enigma-of-the-backyard-photographs-parts-1-3 https://kennedysandking.com/john-f-kennedy-articles/a-new-look-at-the-enigma-of-the-backyard-photographs-part-4 https://kennedysandking.com/john-f-kennedy-articles/a-new-look-at-the-enigma-of-the-backyard-photographs-part-5 Tom
  8. But according to Dick Russell, this is not a picture of Richard Nagell: “The picture on Nagell’s Oswald card, it turned out, is the same photograph that appears on a Marine Notice of Classification bearing the name of “Alex J. Hidell...” (Dick Russell, TMWKTM, page XVIII) If I understand Sandy's question, he is interested in an ID with Richard Nagell's picture and Lee Oswald’s signature. If it turns out there is such a thing, that would be very interesting. In addition to the first card pictured in Tommy’s post above, Nagell claimed to have another interesting piece of ID. From The Man Who Knew Too Much, page 61: “...he [Nagell] further described the contents of his personal property ‘seized and confiscated’ by the FBI on September 20, 1963. It included two Mexican tourist cards (one of them for multiple entrance) made out to the names “Joseph Kramer” and “Albert” or “Aleksei Hidel”....”
  9. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a picture of this ID, but Larry Hancock mentions it in the Spartacus article liked below: http://spartacus-educational.com/JFKnagell.htm “The items that are available [in Nagell’s possession at the time of his arrest] are amazingly similar to items also in the possession of Lee Oswald. They include: (1) One miniature Minolta camera and developing kit. (2) Fair Play for Cuba leaflets. (3) The P.O. Box for the Fair Play for Cuba committee in New Orleans, Louisiana. The committee which had only one member. Lee Oswald. (4) Cuban and Communist literature including the Case against Cuba by Corless Lament, one of the documents also being used in New Orleans by Lee Oswald. (5) A notebook containing the unlisted telephone number of the Cuban embassy, the same number as found in Oswald's notebook. (6) The notebook also contained names of individuals who would much later be identified as CIA personnel from its Los Angles office. (The names were submitted by the FBI to the CIA in October '63 and eventually verified by the CIA as being names of actual employees) In addition, the trial files for Richard Nagell also contain an identification card, the card being a military ID with Nagell's photo and the name and signature of Lee H. Oswald.” Tom
  10. Excellent post, Joe, I share your outlook. And I’d be interested to know who’s done the deepest digging into Jack Lawrence. Tom
  11. A few days ago on this thread, John Butler and I had a discussion about some of the shadows in the BYP. John’s opinion was that the Oswald body shadow was inconsistent with the shadows cast by the horizontal stair-overhangs on the vertical stair stringer below. My opinion was that the two sets of shadows were consistent, and my argument to John is in the footnote at the bottom. John and I were in agreement, however, about the common notion that the Oswald figure’s “V” nose shadow is inconsistent with the Oswald body shadow, and indeed the other shadows in the photos. As described in the footnote, the layout of the Neely Street house is fairly strait forward in that house faces exactly true north, the rear of the house faces south, and the stairs run exactly east-west. I have a couple of questions for those following this thread: (1) If we assume for a moment that the Oswald body shadow is legit, roughly what time of day would the photo have been taken? (2) If we assume for a moment that the “V” nose shadow is legit, roughly what time of day would the photo have been taken? Tom Footnote: “Hi John, Lets pretend for a moment that the BYP were taken at noon. Forget about daylight savings time and where Dallas is in its time zone, let’s use a navigational term, “Local Apparent Noon”. That’s when the sun is at its zenith and the sun’s direction is exactly south (in the northern hemisphere). Neely Street runs exactly east-west, and the Neely Street house faces exactly true north. The rear of the house faces south and the stairway runs exactly east-west. At local apparent noon, the Oswald shadow would point straight north, straight toward the rear wall of the house and would be exactly perpendicular to it. Also at local apparent noon, the shadows cast by the overhang of the stair risers on the stair stringers would be exactly vertical. In this thought experiment, Oswald is a statue and does not move. Flash forward three hours, and the sun has moved to the west, which causes Oswald’s shadow to point in a more easterly direction - point more toward the fence than the house. At this very same time, the shadows from the stair risers have also moved toward the east - pointing toward the fence rather than strait down. And it’s my opinion that that’s exactly what we see the stair riser shadows and the Oswald shadow doing in the BYP. I think you’re right about the “V” nose shadow being inconsistent, John, but the stair-riser/Oswald shadow thing...? I’m going to give it a rest. Tom”

  13. Hi John. Take a look at Andrej Stancak’s 11/7/16 post at the link below. It’s a 3-D model of the entrance of the TSBD at 12:30 on November 22, 1963. http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.php?/topic/22616-prayer-person-prayer-man-or-prayer-woman-research-thread/&page=36 Since Andrej knew the time, date, and location, and hence the direction and altitude of the sun, and since Andrej had created an accurate map of the entrance, his model correctly (apparently) depicted the shadows cast by the building’s structure, hand railing, etc. We know the location of the Neely Street house, but we don’t know the date and time of day. But since we know that the house faces exactly true north, and we know Oswald’s approximate height, we can work the solution from the other end. With a fairly good map of the Neely Street back yard, we would be able to come very close to the correct date and time of the photo if, and only if, the shadow cast by the Oswald figure is legit. Legit or not, once we have the date and time of day based on Oswald’s shadow, we will know for sure if the shadows cast by the stair overhangs are consistent with Oswald’s shadow. We will also know if that odd “V” shaped shadow from the Oswald figure’s nose is consistent, and the answers to other puzzling BYP shadow questions. Andrej is a very busy guy, but I for one would like to see him pick up where he left off with his 3-D modeling of the Neely Street back yard. Tom
  14. Hi John, Apparently responding to a previous post of mine, you wrote: “To say anything other than the steps shadows are toward the left and the Oswald figure's shadow is toward the right denies reality. The shadows are inconsistent not consistent....I would like to hear your idea of how to judge whether something is true or false?” Without any science to back me up, my seat-of-the-pants opinion is that the Oswald figure’s body shadow and the stair shadows appear consistent. But if you are proven to be correct, I will be the first to give you a round of applause. You will have noticed something that goes along way toward also proving the BYP to be bogus. Right or wrong, your shadow hypothesis appears testable, but you will need offer something like a 3-D model to prove it to the rest of us. I wish you luck. Tom
