Videos of witnesses who saw SMOKE coming from the picket fence area.

Many of these folks were either never called to testify before the

Warren Commission, or were called and never asked about it.

Richard C. Dodd, who stood on top of the triple overpass. Mr. Dodd

reports seeing a "puff of smoke" come out from under the trees in

front of the picket fence on top of the Grassy Knoll. He tells Lane

that he told his story to the FBI, but he was never called to testify

before the Warren Commission.

Lee H. Bowers Jr., who was in a 14ft tower in the parking lot of the

railroad yard. Bowers claimed to see two men and "a flash of light or

smoke" in the area of the picket fence on top of the grassy knoll.

He was never asked about this by the Warren Commission.

James L. Simmons, who was standing atop the triple overpass. Mr.

Simmons tells Lane that he heard a shot come from the area of the

picket fence and saw a "puff of smoke" come out from under the trees

in front of the fence. Although Mr. Simmons reported what he saw and

what he heard to both the Dallas Police and the FBI, he was never

called to testify before the Warren Commission.

Beverly Oliver was known as "The babushka Lady" in the Nix film. She

was filming the JFK motorcade from the south side of Elm St., across

from Abraham Zapruder. She claims to have seen a "figure" in the

picket fence area and a "puff of smoke" at the time of the fatal head

shot to JFK.

Days after the assassination, she was contacted by the FBI who took

her film for review. It hasn't been seen since.

J.C. Price, who watched the motorcade from the roof of a building in

Dealey Plaza. Mr. Price believed that a shot came from the area where

the picket fence met the overpass, and claimed to have seen a man

running from that direction across the parking lot and behind the

Texas School Book Depository. Mr. Price was never called to testify

before the Warren Commission.

Orville Nix originally said that he believed that the fatal shot had

come from "behind the picket fence", until he was approached during a

taping of a CBS special by a "man" who told him what "they" wanted him

to say. As a result, Mr. Nix publicly supported the Warren Report, but

privately did not.

eyewitness Bill Newman is interviewed by a local Dallas TV station. He

and his family were standing on the sidewalk at the foot of the grassy

knoll. He describes two shots fired from behind him, the second one

hitting the President "in the temple".

S. M. Holland, who was standing on top of the triple overpass. Mr.

Holland claimed to hear a "bang" come from the area of the picket

fence and saw smoke coming out from under the trees on the grassy

knoll. Mr. Holland also claimed that he told his story to the Warren

Commission, but that his testimony was altered.

Mr. Holland takes author Mark Lane behind the picket fence to show him

the spot from where he saw the smoke come.
