Linda Powell Posted June 22, 2004 Share Posted June 22, 2004 While the speculation continues about who fired the head shot and where from, I don't think I've ever heard much about the location of the shooter who inflicted the entry wound in Kennedy's throat. I know there was an idea of a shooter firing from a drain cover but I understand that's been discounted because the bullet would have had to pass through the windscreen and possibly one of the front occupants of the car. I've never been to Dealey Plaza so can only guess from the photo's I've seen that the picket fence shooter would have been unable to make the throat shot because he was obscured by the road sign. If Kennedy were looking to his right as he disappeared behind the road sign (from Zapruder's view point) the shot would have presumably come from the right in order to strike him below the Adam's apple. If he were looking straight forward the shot must have come directly up the road. I've often wondered if the railroad bridge had someone concealed beneath it, though of course Skinny Holland and his colleagues made no mention of hearing a shot from there and the bridge, judging by the photo's I've seen, doesn't seem to be particularly accommodating to house a sniper. So, I wonder if anyone can enlighten me about what theories have been put forward for this shot, or if anyone's stood behind the fence and seen how much the road sign obscures the view?
