There is little information on the internet about Richard Bothun. He is a mysterious and suspicious person as far as I am concerned. Here is what I have been able to gather: Richard Bothun was a railroad worker. He was an amateur photographer. Mr. Bothun took pictures in Dealey Plaza on the day of the assassination. Mr. Bothun took pictures before the assassination and after, but not during the shooting. There are at least 4 photos accredited to Mr. Bothun of which number 4 seems to be the most important. He took photos from the same locations as Ike Altgens on the Houston St / Main St. intersection, along Elm St. in the grassy area between Elm St. and Main St. And, he is with Altgens in the Zapruder film. He gave his photos to the Dallas Morning News, the home of Ike Altgens. Mr. Bothun did not give any interviews to reporters, or make a statement with either the FBI or Secret Service, nor was he interviewed by attorneys for the WC. As far as I know he didn’t talk to anyone. If anyone has something different, please advise. Most of the major assassination researchers do not mention Richard Bothun. There is little or no information about Bothun. If they do mention him it is mostly about Bothun 4. There are curious problems with Jack White and his statements over the years regarding the authenticity of the Altgens photos and Dick Bothun. Richard Bothun, who photographed JFK motorcade and assassination aftermath, dies of heart attack in 1981. What little is said on the internet about Bothun concerns the photo Bothun 4. Does anyone else know anything extra about Dick Bothun? Are there any photos of Dick Bothun other than the Zapruder film?
