Citation:

"He had no recollection of the bullet entrance wound low in the posterior skull described by all three pathologists in the autopsy report, and in their testimony over the years.”"


It is now confirmed by an Eyewitness that there was no hole in the lower right side, behind the ear of JFK body. This then makes the Autopsy Photo valid.

And since patching up that hole would be impossible, if it were to exit, it also validates what Dr. Akin told of this alleged hole that he saw at Parkland.


Now the senational claims of Horne, White, Fetzer appear to be false per this hole and were nothing more than the blood, clot, and brain matter pooled up there, making it look as there was a profusion there. imho

If the body had already been altered by the time Jenkins saw it, which, given the discussion on the other thread, seems to be the case, then all bets are off, and your case is lost.

Quote by Tom Robinson, Funeral home represenative, who attended the autopsy.

When he was was shown the autopsy photo of the top of JFK’s head, showing the entire top of the cranium missing, he told the ARRB staff, “Well that makes it look like that’s what the bullet did, but that’s what the doctors did.”

Further,

Both Tom Robinson and Navy technician Ed Read, both witnessed illegal and clandestine post mortem surgery performed on JFK’s skull by Dr Humes PRIOR to the official autopsy.

After the start of the official autopsy, Dr Humes acknowledged that surgery had indeed been performed on the skull (two FBI agents wrote that down on their notes.) As Humes was the first surgeon after the body was released by Parkland to see and work on the body, and as the surgeons at Parkland did not perform any surgery on the head, it makes it difficult to see who apart, from Humes,could have opened up JFK's cranium.

1. Robinson sat on Kennedy's left side, and never saw the top of the head until the skull had been reconstructed. He did not reconstruct the head, and assumed the hole in the back of the head towards the end of the reconstruction was the hole at the beginning of the autopsy. There's no reason to believe this is true.

2. Horne's supposition on what really happened is quite silly, and includes the strange conclusion that the orange-sized hole on the back of the head seen by Robinson was the hole at the beginning of the autopsy, before Humes supposedly conducted a pre-autopsy, and that the orange-sized hole on the back of the head seen by Robinson's co-worker John Hoesen was the hole on the skull at the end of the autopsy. Hubba-whaa? They were sitting together, and were working together. How is it that one of them would be allowed to see some top secret operation, but not the other?

3. Horne and Mantik's theories hold that the back of Kennedy's head was blown out in Dallas. Horne's theory is that Humes expanded THIS wound--the one on the back of the head--in a pre-autopsy. Jenkins specified that the back of the head was shattered but intact at the beginning of the autopsy, and collapsed when Humes peeled back the scalp. THIS WAS HUMES' TESTIMONY. It's ludicrous, then, to pretend Jenkins' statements are strong support for Horne or Mantik's theories, when they are, in fact, a significant challenge.

I won't say they are an insurmountable challenge, however. Heck, even I can dream up a scenario in which Humes sutures the back of the head back together so he can peel back the scalp and have the skull collapse in front of an audience.

Am I reading correctly?

It was claimed that Humes removed JFK's brain "before" the official autopsy?

And that this was illegal?

So, this would explain Bethesda Corpsman Paul O'Conner seeing ni brain inside what was left of JFK's head?

And if this is true, did Humes simply grab and pull and cut JFK"s brain out of his skull like gutting an animal?

Because if Humes had used the SOP as described by Paul O'Conner at the London mock trial of Lee Harvey Oswald he would have had to cut diagnoally across on the top of the skull and then pull down and then remove the heavier tissue lining the skull.

This is all incredibly confusing.

And was James Jenkins next to Paul O'Conner during the full autopsy as O'Conner says he ( O'Conner ) was present for this himself?
