Investigating History

The JFK Assassination.

How does forensic science help resolve questions about the JFK

assassination? With the help of a group of scientists and researchers with access to the evidence in the case, Investigating History looks at new information that examines which theories are believable, and which are not. Specifically, the experts looked at the acoustic evidence from the radio of one of the motorcycle policemen in the motorcade and the number of shots that were fired; at the reliability of autopsy X-rays of JFK's skull; at the investigation that concluded that Oswald was the lone assassin; at the new evidentiary support for the "magic bullet" theory; and more.

THE JFK ASSASSINATION (Monday, November 22 at 10 pm ET/PT):

How does forensic science help resolve questions about the JFK

assassination? With the help of a group of scientists and researchers

with access to the evidence in the case, INVESTIGATING HISTORY looks

at new information that examines which theories are believable, and

which are not.

-Experts look at the reliability of autopsy X-rays of JFK's skull;

-At the investigation that concluded that Oswald was the lone

assassin;

-At the new evidentiary support for the "magic bullet" theory; and

more.

Acoustical evidence, which has been analyzed:

-Examination of the acoustic evidence from the radio of one of the

motorcycle policemen in the motorcade and the number of shots that

were fired.

-A new investigation maintains there are five shots on the tape from

an open microphone hanging on a motorcycle policeman's vehicle.

Famed forensic scientist Dr. Henry Lee wades into the investigation by

calling for a return of evidence relating to the "crime scene":

-The limousine carrying John Kennedy, Jackie, John Connolly and his

wife.

-Items were picked up as souvenirs and may be resting in basements of

private homes around the country. Example: windshield, which was

damaged by a bullet.

Featuring footage from The Cyril H., Wecht Institute of Forensic

Science and Law, National Symposium on the 40th Anniversary of the JFK

Assassination.

Executive Producer and television journalist Bill Kurtis returns with

an all-new season of intriguing investigations that explore some of

history's most perplexing puzzles in the weekly one-hour series

JFK

When John F. Kennedy entered the White House in 1961, he brought with

him eight personal physicians to handle his medical requirements and

maintain his image as a healthy President. He'd been a sickly child

and had to endure illness all through his life.

History's Mysteries

Somebody Killed the President.

The President of the United States has the most powerful job in the

world. Even with a round-the-clock guard, there's always the danger

that a determined assassin will get through. Since 1865, 4 presidents

have been killed: Abraham Lincoln, 1865; James Garfield, 1881; William

McKinley, 1901; and John F. Kennedy, 1963. We examine these White

House victims.

Presidential Limo

The 1961 Lincoln Continental convertible limousine

JFK rode in when assassinated in 1963 was, for a time

a true crime scene. Surprisingly, the car was used by

presidents for years after Kennedy's death.
