As I've been developing my article which traces the alteration of the Zfilm to the ultimate alteration of ce585 with the offering of the fraudulent ce884, the first thing that jumps out at me are the results of the first 3 surveys regarding shot #1 and how this was changed for the WC's version. On ce535 - a version which is readable directly from WEST - we see the location marked for Shot #1 as the same as was found in Dec for the SS and Feb for the FBI: 3+81.3 @ elevation 423.07. When the shamefully admitted ce884 was finally uncovered, this changes to 3+71.1 at elevation 423.75. a Difference of 10.2 feet (note: Elm has an 18.3':1' run:rise, for every 18.3' horizontal Elm drops 1' vertically.) Elevation 423.07' - 423.75' = .68' .68' x 18.3' = 12.44' = the distance between these two spots is 12.44' - 10.2' = 2.24 feet further than ce884 suggests. 2.24' is the distance between 207-208 on the first ce884 (yellow). This equated to the limo moving at almost 30mph for those 2 frames then slowing down to around 11mph in the next frame. In the white version, 208 is changed to 210 slowing that speed from 30mph to just under 10mph - much more acceptable and realistic... but moving the same physical location to a different frame means we lose the 2.24' and wind up with a 423.75' elevation @ station 3+81.3. To move from 3+71.1 to 3+81.3 the elevation would no longer be 423.07 but is 10.2'/18.3' = .56' vertically lower than 3+81.3 Elev 423.75' - .56' = Elev 423.19 = 10.2 feet down Elm from 3+71.1 = 3+81.3 So where is 423.07 since the opnly fixed frame in this game was z207 @ 423.75 @ 3+71.1? Elev 423.19' - Elev 423.07' = .12' * 18.3' = 2.196' further down Elm. 3+81.3 + 2.196 = 3+83.496 or 3+83.5 208 and 210 cannot both be 2.24' from 207. Shaneyfelt and Frazier placed the maximum of 3 shots where they made the most sense since the only accurate frame # we have for a shot is 313. ce884 also occurs after Tague comes forward. The "Shot that Missed" becomes a shot which was never officially acknowledged in the WCR other than on ce535. The last image is an overlay of ce585 and the clear plat showing that shot notations are still showing a 3rd shot 35-40 feet past z313... and is why ce884 ends at z313 The infamous WCD298 which was the result of the Dec survey also shows shot #3 down by Altgens at the foot of the stairs. Whether this was a real shot supported by real evidence is hard to tell. 3 surveys, the surveyor's notes and a number of witnesses state a shot was fired after z313 in the area by the foot of the Knoll stairs. WCD1, the FBI report, concludes 3 shots = 3 hits. The surveys need to match this conclusion. Rather than place a shot at the top of Elm during the turn onto Elm and the creation of the amazing Position A, it was decided to put the shot near station 5+00 some 35 feet further down Elm than Z313. The final piece of the puzzle related to the WCR survey plat is the difference between the actual route of the limo, and the frame number dots created by Shaneyfelt and documented in West's notes. So, other than not wanting to show all the shots fired, but only 3 until May 1964, then 2 after that... do the conflicts in the evidence for shot #1 point to something else other than hiding 2 real shots too close together to be possible from one shooter?
