I imagine that the person holding the boom mic moved it because there was nothing notable worth recording. Maybe his arms were tired from holding it too long.

The reason the microphone isn't there is very simple.  The evil CIA took it and used it as a moon landing prop.

high_res3~0.jpgThe mic cable is clearly strung over the pipe in the upper right corner, and is easily set back from the threshold of the (lobby?) area. Exactly how far, it's hard to tell. Because the view is at an angle, it's going to project the chadow further forward. Also, because of the angle, any pictures taken at an angle further over may have completely missed the mic, even though it could still be there, thereby not projecting a shadow. Would anyone really bother to go through pulling out a mic, with the focus on other things? Depending on where the photo is taken from, you could miss or catch things on the periphery.

I believe Beers might have been standing on the railing at the right, as his camera appears to have been looking down on the bystanders.

The Ruby didn't shoot Oswald theory is garbage.

To show how far the madness has gone, Cinque and his supporters actually believe that Bookhout not Ruby shot Oswald, and that he was using blanks as part of some giant charade by the DPD

I agree about the silliness of this thread.  First, there's such a thing as internal bleeding.  I was reading an autopsy recently of someone who took a shot similar to LHO's and when the chest was opened up, the pleural cavities were filled with blood (they said something like 1,000 cc of blood). People don't always start gushing blood out.  I'm not saying it can't happen but it doesn't just start gushing out.  That's more Hollywood fiction:

Watch the gushers above - I like this movie but silly gushing.

Second, I don't think they used a boom to hold that mic up there.  I think the cord was draped around a pipe up there and then just letting it hang.  I remember doing that 20 years ago for a video shoot of group meetings similar to press conferences.

Seeing and not seeing the mic in different photos is like Robin said, just a high and/or low angle.

Because deep down he feared that the Chicago Mob did it, which I believe.  They offered to go to Hollywood and investigate the murder but Irv said no.  You don't ask the mob to do anything for you because then they own you.  Walter Winchell asked Irv to give it his blessing because he wanted to solve the murder and "win a Pulitzer Prize doing so."  He drove the cops nuts. 

The downstairs neighbor was suspicious and she was very depressed.  Irv's friends believed she committed suicide but you couldn't tell that to Irv.  I'm told that Irv was sorry he hadn't brought in a private investigator.
