    johnny roselli autopsy report

    Dale Earnhardt died in the 2001 Daytona 500. Privacy laws kept his autopsy private.

    Well...it happened

    I do genealogy research. There is no "mystery" as to why the second Oswald sibling is listed as "private." It's because, at the time the listing was made, the other Oswald sibling (Robert) was still alive. Even with notorious families, genealogy sharing sites respect the privacy of the living. So does most GEDCOM software, used to upload and share family trees. So the "private" issue is not an issue at all.
  3. " Lipsey says, after a minute or two of explaining how the bullet fragments recovered from the President's brain matched the shell casings found on the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository Building and the doctors agreed that JFK was hit by two bullets from behind that "there is no question Lee Harvey Oswald is the lone assassin." " Exactly how are "bullet fragments" matched to "shell casings"? Unless the " fragments" are large enough, and undamaged enough, to determine the caliber of the bullet, there is no way to "match" a particular bullet to a particular casing. Casings are crimped at the base of the bullet, but there is no "signature" mark that a casing leaves on a bullet, to the exclusion of other casings of the same caliber. So I call BS right there.

    Chasing Our Tails?

    Oh, I think there were a lot of separate groups involved in the JFK assassination. But I believe they all operated separately. Call it a "perfect storm," if you will. Suspect groups are, in no particular order: *Mafia *Pro-Castro Cubans *Anti-Castro Cubans *CIA, or certain factions thereof *John Birch Society *right-wing nut jobs NOT affiliated with the JBS. Once JFK was dead, as Gerry Hemming used to post, it mattered less WHO did it, to those who wanted him dead. If one of the other factions did it, the Mafia people assigned/contracted to do the hit are certainly NOT going to say they DIDN'T do it and turn down the money for the hit. Same with the other groups. They're not going to say anything publicly, for obvious reasons. But they were assigned the hit, and the target wound up dead. So surely those who were assigned the hit, truly or falsely took credit for doing the deed. If there was money involved, they took the payoff whether they pulled the trigger or not. JFK was dead, Ozzie was posthumously "convicted" by the Warren Commission, and no one would be the wiser. Except those damned conspiracy folks won't let the case die.
  5. Quite interesting.
  6. Lost in all this talk of Carter wanting to reopen the JFK assassination investigation is the fact that the HSCA investigation was going on concurrently with the first half of the Carter administration. Or is this about Carter desiring a new investigation AFTER the HSCA investigation concluded?

    The Oak Cliff "Safe Houses"

    Anyone have access to a 1963 city directory for Dallas? Might find Rodriguez's address there, especially if the phone numbers are the same. That would take care of the Huspeth/Elsbeth question.

    What Will It Take To Believe?

    The late Gerry Hemming said that there were a LOT of non- murderers who privately took credit for killing JFK. Mafioso....anti-Castro Cubans...pro-Castro Cubans...hired guns of all stripes. Some, he suggested, accepted payment for the "hit" who never squeezed a trigger. What did it matter? They were sent to do a job, the job was done, and no one's the wiser due to sloppy police work and the Whitewash Commission....errr, WARREN Commission. Whether Hemming was BSing on other matters or not, on this topic I figure he was correct.

    Who changed the motorcade route?

    I think that would be a reasonable conclusion as well.

    Who changed the motorcade route?

    I would call that a reasonable conclusion. The dog-leg was clearly spelled out in some reports, and was glossed over in others. One might deduce the necessity of the dog-leg based upon the presence of buses in the motorcade, but it wasn't clearly spelled out in all reports. So I have my doubts that the route was actually changed. More likely it was simply poorly reported.
  11. Mr. Trejo, I have NEVER posted under the name of Michael Clark. So please retract your FALSE STATEMENT that I posted any video series on this thread, or I will petition the other administrators to BAN your falsehoods from this forum...permanently. The ball's in your court, Mr. Trejo...and the clock is ticking. [Begin new post here:] As I promised, I have filed a report with the other forum administrators regarding Mr. Trejo's blatant abuse of the truth and particularly his blatant falsehoods regarding my authorship of certain posts on this thread. The truth is plain. It's right here on this thread. But Mr. Trejo apparently has no interest in truth. Instead, he falsely accused me of making posts under the name of another forum member. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, MR. TREJO. THE GLOVES ARE OFF NOW.

  13. I believe it was YOU, not I, who brought RFK into this thread. Your post from 8:13 PM Monday, to refresh your memory. Or DID YOU FORGET THAT? Your post hasn't been deleted... So YOU decide who brought up RFK. [HINT: IT WASN'T ME...so don't even TRY to cast the blame on me again, Mr. Trejo. I resent your attempt to blame me for YOUR change of direction in this thread.]
  14. Sirhan and his gun remained in front of RFK. The fatal head wound came from behind, into the right mastoid process. So show me how that's possible with Sirhan's gun in front of RFK the entire time.

    Who changed the motorcade route?

    The Linotype machine made its debut in the 1880's. Hand- setting type was long gone by the 1950's. I'm surprised you wouldn't have researched that. But maybe I shouldn't be, since it's not mentioned in the WC report or in Bugliosi's book. Perhaps that's why you haven't discovered the fact that the Linotype was already on its way out in the 1970s. It's OK to look outside the WC and Bugliosi for background, Mr. Von Pein. Truly it is. There is reliable information out there that is NOT covered by Vince or the WC. HONEST.
