My name is Rich Negrete. It looks like I'm in some pretty heady company here! I'm 57, a retired police officer, and a lifetime resident of Southern California with a longtime interest in the JFK assassination. My one small contribution thus far to the topic was a 2-part article in Jim DiEugenio's website (formerly) CTKA entitled "JFK e-books for the Kindle and Nook". Now horribly obsolete but thanks for the opportunity Jim! I'd like to thank Jim DiEugenio, Len Osanic's iconic Black Op Radio, and indeed all of the researchers who put in so much time and energy into this topic that will always remain important and relevant. And, oh...I'll probably be stretching my welcome here, but I just posted a question under JFK Questions, below the heading "CIA report 104-40". If you get a chance please check it out. And thank you for the inclusion.

Hello Education Forum!

I am here to learn from people who have specialist knowledge of the JFK assassination, especially the Dealey Plaza crime scene.  I have created an animated reconstruction of the motorcade, which is here:

I have been building and publishing computer software for over 15 years and this was an opportunity to use those skills to find out what did and did not happen during the assassination.

I'm no specialist but have followed this topic throughout the year's. There was no blood spatter analysis in 1963, the year the assassination happened. Since then blood spatter analysis was invented,  perfected, and became a standard technique by law enforcement in murder investigations. 

Sheri Fiester, now deceased, was a retired blood spatter analysis expert and looked at the Zapruder film of the assassination. She noticed that the blood coming out of jfk's head exited in a forward direction during the fatal shot, indicating that the shot came from from the direction of the blood spatter, I.e. the front.  

She went to the scene of the crime and walkes through delay plaza. In her opinion,  based on her training, experience, and videographic evidence depicted in the Zapruder film, the fatal shot came from the triple underpass area- which aligned perfectly with the position of the limo on Elm Street at the time of the fatal shot, direction of the blood spatter, etc. 

When you see the zapruder film, you can see that the front of the limo makes a slight turn to the left due to the curvature of Elm Street and, therefore, places jfk facing directly forward towards the left side/opening of the triple underpass- which is very dark and provides cover for a person. 

Sheri fiester spoke at her sister's gathering in Dallas as part of Jfk Lancer.org  or .com. 

MS. Fiester has also said that expert snipers had infotmed her that when hit teams are assembled to eliminate a target or political leader, they work in groups of three (3) members, so as to create a distraction prior to the fatal shot.  This may explain why people ran towards the grassy knoll after the final head shot and why some witnesses said they saw a rifle and heard shots from the 6th floor of the Texas  Schoolbook Depository (Texas Governor John Conally also testified he heard shots from behind where he was seated in the limo)...there was a shooter behind the fence in the grassy knoll and another in the texas schoolbook depository, both of whom fired a weapon prior to the shooter firing the fatal shot from the triple underpass. 

Sincerely, Joel Peralez

Hi - I paint and sculpt. When not working I read heavily the research material here and elsewhere. I am currently reading 'Pentagonism' (Bosch), and 'The Warfare State' (Cook), which so far, and, combined with how John Kennedy was taken out, confirm our own observations of life on planet earth - under a U.S. military junta with a global reach.

Hi, everybody! 

I just turned sixty-one. I was born in Atlanta, Georgia. My parents moved there from the Northeast. My father worked as a distribution manager for a textile manufacturer. Said manufacturer moved to the South to avoid paying union wages (i guess). And then, of course, by the seventies, textile manufacturers, like so many others, moved operations offshore so they could pay people even less. Ah, capitalism. But, I digress. My father was going to be an artist before World War II. Kept at it while raising his family and holding down his manager job. Kept getting fired because he stood up for his workers. We relocated to the Low Country in South Carolina. After his manufacturing career, Dad provided for us by selling watercolors and pen-and-ink drawings. My mother was a secretary at another textile manufacturer until it shuttered. She applied so I earned a corporate-sponsored four-year academic scholarship. I earned my bachelor’s degree at UNC-Chapel Hill studying studio art and American literature. Making a living from art seemed too risky to me, although my professor, Marvin Saltzman, urged me to stick with it. I took a staff job at the university. I retired from that job in 2013 and currently live on my state pension. I am sidling up to making a side-line in art, principally cartooning. I’ve been married, amiably divorced, and live now with my partner of twenty-eight years in our home in North Carolina. We raise dogs. We have three large ones.

One of my earlier memories is of standing in our living room watching a black-and-white TV display John F. Kennedy’s funeral procession. Over the years I read a thing or two about his life, and mysteries to do with his death. I’ve always been able to accommodate ambiguity. But, strange goings-on during the 2016 presidential election campaign brought me back around to JFK.

Earlier this year I was thrilled to find this forum attended by so many great researchers. I’ve been lurking — a lot — so, I’m hoping I'm not to blame for the recent "user spike" trouble! I'll donate to help out as I can.
