Don Jeffries Posted December 11, 2004 Share Posted December 11, 2004 I am intrigued by Seymour Weitzman, the Dallas constable who was in on the discovery of the rifle on the sixth floor of the TSBD, found a piece of the president's skull and made an interesting early report from behind the pickett fence. To my knowledge, Weitzman was never interviewed by any of the early critics. He appeared to disappear from public view after the assassination, and the next (and last) we hear of him is when the House Assassinations Committee wrote a followup report to a lengthy interview with a psychiatrist from a mental institution where Weitzman had been for quite some time. It is only there that we learn of Weitzman's mental problems, which appear to stem from acute paranoia about his experiences related to the assassination of JFK. I believe Weitzman died a number of years ago, but I wondered if anyone here could give me any more information on this tragic figure. What happened to him between the assassination and the late '70s, when the HSCA reported that he was in a mental institution? Has anyone attempted to interview any surviving relatives? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
