What time did JFK leave Parkland?

Recommended Posts

Clint Hill's Warren Commission testimony:

We took the body from the hospital and departed the Parkland Hospital about 2:04 p.m.


Roy Kellerman's original report:

Between I p.m., and our departure from the hospital at 2:04 p.m. cst., a casket was obtained...



An unsigned and undated statement from someone at Parkland. Price Exhibit 2
http://www.aarclibrary.org/publib/jfk/wc/wcvols/wh21/pdf/WH21_Price_Ex_2-35.pdf page 4.
He left the Emergency Room, the President, at about 2 p.m. In an O'Neal ambulance.


Shankles. Hospital Security Office. Price Exhibit 29
http://www.aarclibrary.org/publib/jfk/wc/wcvols/wh21/pdf/WH21_Price_Ex_2-35.pdf  page 86

At about 2:00 p.m., we received word to clear a passageway through the emergency corridor of all personnel and within a few minutes the casket bearing President Kennedy's body was escorted out by Secret Service Agents and Placed in a hearse. 


Statement by Charles D. Gerloff Security Officer Dallas County Hospital District
Price Exhibit 29
http://www.aarclibrary.org/publib/jfk/wc/wcvols/wh21/pdf/WH21_Price_Ex_2-35.pdf page 88

As the casket came out, Mrs. Kennedy at its side, I helped put it into the hearse and watched it leave at approximately 1:30 P.M.


Statement by DORIS NELSON, R.N. Price Exhibit 31
http://www.aarclibrary.org/publib/jfk/wc/wcvols/wh21/pdf/WH21_Price_Ex_2-35.pdf page 92

At approximately 2:10 P.M. The President's body was taken out of the Emergency Room. Mrs. Kennedy was walking beside it,. All of the secret service agents left the area.


Statement by J.C. Price Price Exhibit 33 http://www.aarclibrary.org/publib/jfk/wc/wcvols/wh21/pdf/WH21_Price_Ex_2-35.pdf page 113 of pdf file

At  the time the casket passed the cashier's office, I looked at my watch – the time was 2:20 p.m. I watched the hearse leave, then went back into the Blood Bank...

So, what time did JFK leave Parkland?


Was it 1:30?

Was it 2:04?

Was it 2:10?

Was it 2:20?


The two SS Agents agree down to the exact minute. This is probably based upon an official report that they both relied on when testifying.

Was the one hour difference between Gerloff and Price because one was going on Central time and the other on Eastern time?
