Here is a Mary Moorman photograph straight from NBC. She tried to sell her photo, but no buyers. In the pergola you can see a man in the breezeway behind Abraham Zapruder. Mr. Zapruder in his first TV interview thought that he was in the direct line of fire. In the nix film, you see two shots from that area. There you have it, Arce was saying the truth.
Here is the transcript of Mr. Zapruder's first interview:
Here is Mr. Zapruder's testimony -
Mr. LIEBELER - Yes.
Mr. ZAPRUDER - Yes--after the shots--yes, some of them were motorcycle cops--I guess they left their motorcycles running and they were running right behind me, of course, in the line of the shooting. I guess they thought it came from right behind me.
Mr. LIEBELER - Did you have any impression as to the direction from which these shots came?
Mr. ZAPRUDER - No, I also thought it came from back of me. Of course, you can't tell when something is in line it could come from anywhere, but being I was here and he was hit on this line and he was hit right in the head--I saw it right around here, so it looked like it came from here and it could come from there.
Mr. LIEBELER - All right, as you stood here on the abutment and looked down into Elm Street, you saw the President hit on the right side of the head and you thought perhaps the shots had come from behind you?
Mr. ZAPRUDER - Well, yes.
Mr. LIEBELER - From the direction behind you?
Mr. ZAPRUDER - Yes, actually--I couldn't say what I thought at the moment, where they came from--after the impact of the tragedy was really what I saw and I started and I said--yelling, "They've killed him"--I assumed that they came from there, because as the police started running back of me, it looked like it came from the back of me.
Mr. LIEBELER - But you didn't form any opinion at that time as to what direction the shots did come from actually?
Mr. ZAPRUDER - No.
Here is Bill and Gayle Newman TV interview minutes after the assassination:
Here is Bill and Gayle Newman TV interview years later:
Here is Mr. Bill Newman's testimony:
Q: How many shots did you hear?
A: I heard at least three. I often thought of four, but I can't clearly say there were four shots; I can clearly say there were three.
Q: Do you have any impression as to the direction from which the shots came?
A: Yes, sir. From the sound of the shots, the report of the rifle or whatever it was, it sounded like they were coming directly behind from where I was standing.
Q: Now would you push the microphone aside and step down to the aerial photograph and identify that general area, just the general area from which the sounds came.
A: In my opinion, the sounds of the shots sounded as if they had come from directly behind me (indicating). I was standing near this light standard here, and I thought the shots were coming from back here, and apparently everybody else did because they all ran in that direction.
Here is the Nix Film - https://youtu.be/r1MsfIYd1iI
Look at the shelter around the 5-second mark. A shot is fired from the third window and there is another shot fired from the walkway behind Mr. Zapruder and Ms. Sitzman.
You can make the video show in slow motion, you will see it better. Click the gear, then speed. Select .25 as the speed.
It is hard for some of you to grasp, but there is film evidence, photographic evidence of shots fired from the pergola. Mr. Zapruder's interview and testimony and Bill and Gayle Newman's interview and testimony, both stating that the shots came from the pergola. At least two shots came from the pergola where one gunman is seen in the Mary Moorman photo and in the Nix Film.
