President Kennedy’s Black Patch-Part II

President Kennedy’s Black Patch-Part II

President Kennedy’s Black Patch- Part II and his many back wounds

Let’s go back to the first part of this discussion and take another look at the representations of President Kennedy’s wounds acquired in Dealey Plaza. As you can see in these drawings there is one large wound in President Kennedy’s back. There is a massive wound to the right side of President Kennedy’s head in the temporal region.  There is no indication of a wound such as described by the doctors at Parkland Hospital and no indication of President Kennedy’s Black Patch.

You can see what might be an entrance wound just below the crown of his head, it is actually a blood clot some say. If you draw a line from the alleged wound in the crown to the gaping wound in the temple say to the man’s thumb that line has a significant upward tendency. If you draw a line from the alleged crown entrance wound to the center of the large temporal / frontal wound then you would have a slight downward tranjectory. This is not what one would expect from a high angle shot of 19 degrees from the Sniper’s Nest on the 6th floor of the TSBD. Kennedy would need to bend over for a 19 degree tranjectory.  This drawing shows only one wound in the President’s back.  According to the Lone Gunman myth these are the only two wounds President Kennedy received that day.



President Kennedy acquired 2 wounds from 3 shots fired in Dealey Plaza. This is the official version. This is the Lone Gunman Theory. The wound in the back exits President Kennedy’s throat and then causes all of Governor Connally’s wounds. The 2nd or 3rd shot misses the vehicle. And, it is the 2nd or 3rd shot that strikes President Kennedy in the back of the head causing the large head wound. These are the wounds described in the Lone Gunman Theory.

This line drawing is a lie. It is a bold, outright, outrageous lie! It covers up and gives a false impression of reality. At the time of the History Channel documentary on the Kennedy assassination the illustration above was considered a photo rather than a drawing. There is a photo this drawing was based on. The drawing was made to be in accord with the autopsy findings which were made to be in tune with the official story, the Lone Gunman story. Let’s see if we can cut through the BS.

What is seen here in the government’s view is a large entrance wound made by a tumbling 6.5 mm Carcano round. This wound goes to the other side of the body and comes out in the throat below the larnyx and leaves, according to the Parkland doctors, a neat 3 mm to 5 mm or so hole as an exit wound and then goes on to create all of John Connally’s wounds. The bullet hole shown here appears to be greater than twice as large as the wound in the throat. This is the reverse of most entrance / exit wounds.

This is the essence of the Single Bullet Theory / Lone Gunman Theory which accounts for two of President Kennedy’s 3 wounds. In the real autopsy photo showing Kennedys back you have a small wound and a larger wound of the same shape and appearance. The small wound is not shown is the line drawing. There is no heart shaped black patch covering the wound seen at Parkland Hospital.  The larger back wound is said to be the cause of President Kennedy’s throat wound.

There are a large and small bullet wound of similar shape. From there size one could say there is an entrance wound, the smaller, and an exit wound, the larger. This shown is better in the enlarged photo shown next.


The photo above is a cropped photo with the lower portion missing. When you examine this photo you can see that President Kennedy was shot more than once in the back. If you have the courage to follow the evidence of what your eyes tell you then you will realize that President Kennedy was shot to pieces. Or, you can do what most people do is listen to what the autopsy fakers and their shills say and just see one wound. There appears to be more than a half a dozen wounds visible. Only one is described in the autopsy report. We can also see in the next photo President Kennedy’s black patch.

There is no wound to the rear or occipital region of the skull visible in the following photo. There is a massive heartshaped, black patch covering the wound as described by over 40 Parkland Hospital personnel.

As an aside, this argument of wound placement was still ongoing at the time of The House Select Committee on Assassinations. G. Robert Blakey, as shown in a History Channel documentary, blatantly and boldy lied and manipulated evidence to show that President Kennedy’s wound was as described by the autopsy. He said there were 26 witnesses at the autopsy that described a rear entrance and temporal exit wound.

And, this refuted the 40 or so Parkland Staff’s claim of a rear exit wound. Later documentation released to the ARRB said this was not true and a blatant lie on the part of Blakey. All of the 26 witnesses had said much the same as the Parkland Staff. Their testimony was suppressed and hidden for years. That is not an uncommon event in the Kennedy Assassination for the Warren Commission and the HSCA proceedings.

Almost everyone believes the shooting ended with the last shot accounting for President Kennedy’s head wound. The wounds in the back tell you he may have been dead before the head wound occurred. There may have been an earlier head wound. The second Kennedy head wound is believed by many people. Would you go for 3?

Follow the red arrows and if these are not gunshots wounds then President Kennedy had a really serious skin problem leaving multiple holes in his back.Or, maybe his back treatments left lots of holes resembling bullet wounds. There are two gunshot wounds of similar shape but, different sizes. This suggest tumbling 6.5 mm rounds from the front and rear. The official story is that these things seen on his back are blood clots that have not been washed away.



I am not the only one seeing more than one bullet wound in the back. The following photo gives the measurements of these two wounds suggesting and exit wound for the larger and an entrance wound for the smaller. The smaller is very similar to that which Parkland doctors described as an entrance wound in the throat.


Bullet wounds or unwashed blood clots? You decide.



What is the ruler being used for? What is being measured here? Is the ruler covering up more gunshot wound holes?

What follows are scenes from the AMIPA film of Bob Yeargan. Yeargan filmed from the Northwest Corner of Market and Main Street. These frames were captured as the President passed Yeargan’s position. The scenes from AMIPA suggest that President Kennedy was shot in the back at least three times at that location.


Here we see President Kennedy propelled forward off the back of his seat. His right shoulder is hunched upward. His hands are clutching at the air in front of him. His cheeks are puffed out from air expelled from his lungs due to the force of the shot. He has a grimace and squint-eyed expression from the pain. This is the second sequence to show this type of reaction. No one in the limousine reacts to this shot and others. You can read Jackie Kennedy’s Warren Commission testimony and other statements to verify this. She said shooting occurred just as she saw a blue-grey building in front of her. This blue-grey building was located across from the Old Court House at Record and Main.

This blog format is limited in what it can do. The frames need to be enlarged for a better view. What is shown here is President Kennedy being shot in the back on Main Street just past Market Street. This was a long ambush ending on Elm Street, a gauntlet. No one in the presidential limousine has heard a shot or reacted on Main Street at this point. John Connally is not shot here or in earlier frames debunking the Single Bullet Theory.

Basically, President Kennedy was shot once in the head and at least 3 times in the back on Main Street just west of Market and Main.



If President Kennedy was not already dead when the 2nd head wound occurred, he died instantly with no hope of resuscitation. He was Dead on Arrival at Parkland. How can you conclude this?

If you understand wounds to the head made by high-powered rifles and the principle of hydrostatic or hydraulic pressure then you will understand what has been said. Sometimes, hydrostatic pressure is called hydrostatic shock. More than likely if these back wounds were from high-powered rifles than they would have burst heart and lungs and shredded other vital organs. This appears to not be the case. According to the autopsy report the heart and lungs were not shredded or touched by rifle rounds. This leads one to believe in “short” or under powered rounds.

In reviewing the literature on the Kennedy Assassination several authors have hinted at dark business occurring at Parkland Hospital but, not with any specificity. I have wondered for sometime what that might be. After I watched a video made by one of the doctors at Parkland I begin to get an idea. Maybe, it is the wrong idea but, an idea nonetheless.

First, there is a tracheostomy, inserting an air tube for breathing, by the Parkland emergency team when Kennedy arrived at Parkland and then, later Dr. Malcom Perry cut through the throat wound to make the tracheotomy incision obscuring the wound. This tracheotomy probably didn’t need to be done. In his words, he said making it “inviolate” for evidence.

At Parkland none of the Doctors looked for additional wounds. They knew Kennedy was dead with no hope of resuscitation. Here again, Dr. Perry’s explanation for not doing so appeared to be weak. Why was this? Could it be that everyone knew that Kennedy was dead with no hope of resuscitation? These were professionals at a trauma center dealing with gunshot wounds. They probably saw thousands in the course of their duties. Again, in Dr. Perry’s words from an interview he stated this was an “attempted resuscitation”.

The rifle shot that struck President Kennedy in the head created a cone of force of thousands of atmospheres of pressure that literally blew the back of President Kennedy’s head out. You don’t need a frangible round for this. This hydrostatic pressure destroyed what remained of his brain in the skull. The rifle shot destroyed the structure and function of the president’s brain instantly. The shock of the round destroyed any remaining brain tissue disrupting cellular function completely. This large wound must have been the last if you believe in more than one head wound. He died instantly with no chance of survival. Read the following and you will understand. From the internet:

“In the scientific literature, the first discussion of pressure waves created when a bullet hits a living target is presented by E. Harvey Newton and his research group at Princeton University in 1947:[8][9]

It is not generally recognized that when a high velocity missile strikes the body and moves through soft tissues, pressures develop which are measured in thousands of atmospheres. Actually, three different types of pressure change appear: (1) shock wave pressures or sharp, high pressure pulses, formed when the missile hits the body surface; (2) very high pressure regions immediately in front and to each side of the moving missile; (3) relatively slow, low pressure changes connected with the behavior of the large explosive temporary cavity, formed behind the missile. Such pressure changes appear to be responsible for what is known to hunters as hydraulic shock—a hydraulic transmission of energy which is believed to cause instant death of animals hit by high velocity bullets (Powell (1)).”

The brain contains about 75% or more water making it the organ in the body containing the most water.Water does not compress well. And, if you subject that material to thousands of atmospheres of pressure in a particular direction what do you think would be the result? The result is no. 2 in the definition above creating a cone of force that exited President Kennedy’s head at the rear in the occipital region carrying brain tissue and bone away.

The head wound from right temple to a large exit wound in the occipital region of the skull tells you one other thing. This is not a wound from the 6th floor of the TSBD. It is not a high angle wound from a high position such as the 6th floor but, a lower angle wound suggesting a shot from a second or third story office at the TSBD, or perhaps the Grassy Knoll, or a shot from the Triple Underpass from the Ghost Train. The shot could have been made on Main Street from the Triple Underpass train. But, surely someone would have seen something in the journey from Main Street to Houston Street to the TSBD on Elm Street.

I have always had a hard time visualizing more than one head shot. The AMIPA film, Jackie Kennedy, Dr. Fetzer and crew have convinced me of two. Now, in JFK- The Medical Cover Up Doug Horne says there is evidence for 3 head wounds. I’m having a hard time seeing 3 head wounds. If 3 high powered rifle shots struck Kennedy in the head you would have what is shown in Z frame 319. That is half a head remaining, the upper half gone.

Horne said there was a head wound that went from the right, upper, frontal bone (forehead) to the left, rear, upper parietal bone. This would be a fairly flat trajectory suggesting a wound from the street taken from the passenger side or front of the vehicle. This third wound may be the first head wound.
There is AMIPA footage that shows this wound. You need to magnify this frame to see the wound better.



And, another view.



Such a large head wound, as reported by the Parkland Doctors, needed to be disguised until President Kennedy reached the right spot on Elm Street, in the narrative of the Lone Gunman, where he could be shot according to the storyline, from the 6th floor Sniper’s Nest.

The head wound could have occurred earlier and there is some evidence for that, particularly Jackie Kennedy’s statements. But, the best location according to witness testimony for shooting was in the intersection of Elm and Houston streets and in front of the TSBD.

Doug Horne describes 3 wounds in the You Tube video presentation JFK- The Medical Cover up.

1) A wound that goes from the right frontal bone (forehead) to the upper, left, rear parietal bone. This wound was covered up by triangular cuts in that area of entrance at the autopsy.
2) A wound that struck the temporal region just above the ear and exited the rear of the skull as a large defect in the occipital region. This wound was seen at Parkland Hospital and was called a tangential wound.
3) The third wound was to the back of the head and did not exit the skull resulting in cracking the frontal bone above the eye and breaking the vomer, a bone in the nose. The bullet did not exit the skull. Horne’s third wound.


If there were 3 head wounds as Doug Horne suggests we could have a wound occurring in different locations along the route from Main Street to Elm Street. We could have Jackie Kennedy’s description of a head wound occurring on Main Street before seeing the blue-grey building there. This is the wound she described as bloodless but, you could see skull bone. It was his last “expression”. Horne’s 3rd wound would be visible on the left, upper parietal to Jackie Kennedy. His evidence suggested this was a wound that was not a huge gaping hole.

Many have testified that the head wound occurred when the presidential vehicle entered the intersection of Houston and Elm. And, then we have the Single Bullet Theory of Oswald the demented shooter from the 6th floor of the TSBD.

What does this make the Zapruder film and its gap? Is it the Grand Deception on Elm Street?

There is evidence for the following speculation but, at this point it is still somewhat speculative. President Kennedy’s Black Patch- Part II may provide an answer people have been looking for over the years. Three head wounds in 3 different locations. The AMIPA film shows the first on Main Street. The Marie Muchmore film shows the second at the intersection of Main and Houston or on Houston Street. And, the third occurs in the intersection of Houston and Elm.
I have become convinced of 2 Kennedy head wounds but, I am still having problems with 3. You can notice the head wound on Main in the AMIPA film and the Parkland Hospital described wound. A third one?

Regardless, the black patch is real and is shown as a heart shaped black patch in the photos above. It is a real phenomenon in photos where the patch contrasts badly with the bright sunny back of the head of other people.

The Murder of Marilyn Monroe

The Murder of Marilyn Monroe

The Murder of Marilyn Monroe- The Green light for the Assassination of John Kennedy

This article is a speculative discussion on something that has bothered me about Robert Kennedy for decades. Why did he support the Warren Commission conclusions in public until the day he died?

From the internet about a book, The Murder of Marilyn Monroe: Case Closed:

“EXCLUSIVE – Bobby Kennedy ordered the murder of Marilyn Monroe by lethal injection to prevent her from revealing her torrid affairs with RFK and JFK: New book sensationally claims to have finally solved the mystery surrounding her death”

• Investigative journalists Jay Margolis and Richard Buskin believe they have lain to rest any notion that Marilyn committed suicide, and revealed how they think the screen goddess really died

• The Kennedy brothers were ‘passing her around like a football,’ revealed brother-in-law, actor Peter Lawford, years after she died

• Marilyn knew too much about the Kennedys and threatened to reveal everything

• Bobby Kennedy did not act alone, the authors claim. Complicit in the murder was Lawford and Marilyn’s shrink, who gave her the fatal dose of pentobarbitol

If you were a bunch of Happy Cold Warriors, including CIA, FBI, Secret Service, Joint Military Chiefs, Texas Businessmen, Anti-Castro Cubans, and Mafia Criminal Elements, sitting around planning the murder of President Kennedy then surely one of the calculations would be what to do about U. S. Attorney General Robert Kennedy. Robert Kennedy was a formidable opponent to anyone he considered an enemy.

The major players would be able to control the government and the government’s story. Could they control the President’s brother? He couldn’t be left behind to investigate his brother’s death. The risk was too high. But, how would you accomplish that? A double murder! A planned accident! A suicide!

Fortunately, for them, the events of the Monroe Guest Cottage intervened on August 4, 1962. This was the murder of Marilyn Monroe. Earlier in the year, in February, Marilyn Monroe met John Kennedy at a party given by Peter Lawford and his wife, Pat. At that party Monroe set her sights on John Kennedy and eventually became his paramour. She wanted more. She wanted to become his second wife once Jackie Kennedy was removed from the scene. When this didn’t happen, she continually called the White House harassing the President.



When this harassment became extremely annoying he tasked his brother, Robert, to get take care of her. Marilyn Monroe claimed to love John Kennedy. It is doubtful that a woman of Marilyn Monroe’s nature could love anyone but herself and maybe not even herself. Love was a means to obtain a goal. Below is the outer shell of Marilyn Monroe, the screen image.



When Bobby Kennedy appeared on the scene to talk to Marilyn Monroe he didn’t have a chance. He and Marilyn began an illicit affair that ended badly at the Monroe Guest Cottage. Monroe claimed she “had been passed around like a piece of meat” by the two brothers. She threatened Bobby Kennedy and John Kennedy with harmful information she had in a red diary.  This led to the murder of Marilyn Monroe.

Internet talk doesn’t give a flattering picture of any of the Kennedy’s. Supposedly, Jackie Kennedy had affairs with Jack’s two brothers while she was married to Jack and afterwards. And, with any Hollywood male star available. Robert Kennedy is alleged to have had a homosexual affair with a Russian ballet dancer. It is suggested that she asked Robert Kennedy to do away with her arch rival, Marilyn.

Some conspiracy theorists have speculated that Jackie Kennedy was in on the assassination of her husband. Many based this on the bizarre statements she made after the assassination concerning her husband’s murder. These bizarre statements are dealt with in The AMIPA Shooting Sequence.

Jack and Jackie Kennedy’s appetite for sexual partners was said to be enormous. Can you figure out what is going on in the following picture with I believe Ben Bradley and wife?



The stakes were high. England’s Secretary of War, John Profumo, had been forced to resign after it was made known that he had an affair with a 19 year old model, Christine Keeler or, as some say prostitute. There were implications of Russian involvement and prostitution. Resignation was the fate of politicians in those days which were caught in scandalous behavior. Scandals of such magnitude always called for resignation or in the case of the President impeachment. Today, gross sexual peccadilloes can still lead to a resignation for politicians.



Bobby Kennedy wanted that red diary and did not stop at murder to obtain it. He was helped in the murder of Monroe by his brother-in-law, Peter Lawford, and Marilyn’s psychiatrist Dr. Ralph Greenson. When he heard, did President Kennedy heave a sigh of relief? Did he wonder how Monroe died? Did the “lauded by many” Great Patriot care?



Unfortunately, for them, the Monroe Guest Cottage was wired perhaps by the FBI and others. J. Edgar Hoover now had a handle on Robert Kennedy with which he could make him do anything he wanted. Hoover is often portrayed as one who wasn’t in on the assassination planning but, he was one who simply did nothing and allowed it to happen.



By knowing what happened at the Monroe Guest Cottage, J. Edgar Hoover gave the assassins the green light to the planning and eventual assassination of John Kennedy.



Marilyn Monroe’s murder was passed off as a suicide. But, the real facts were known by high level law enforcement. Bobby Kennedy, the Attorney General, could now be black mailed by Washington’s most infamous blackmailer. J. Edgar Hoover, a man who hated both Robert and John Kennedy, called the Attorney General within an hour of the President’s death. More was probably said then that which is indicated by Clint Eastwood’s movie J. Edgar.

The death of President Kennedy’s paramour increased the level of hatred against him as a man and president. Not everyone thought well or worshipped President Kennedy. It was added to the list of reasons why he had to go, particularly in the Mafia.

Along with Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon, these were the monsters of my youth not, Hollywood film creatures. And, we didn’t know who or what they were due to a lying press and visual media who portrayed the Kennedy’s in a fantasy Camelot scenario almost totally devoid of the truth.

This scenario explains for me why Robert Kennedy, until the day he died, publicly stated he supported the conclusions of the Warren Commission. This question has bothered me since the 1970’s when it was becoming clear there was a conspiracy to kill President Kennedy. This is my answer to that question.

I found this on the internet after I had composed this article and published it on this website.


President Kennedy’s Black Patch- Part I

President Kennedy’s Black Patch- Part I 

President Kennedy’s Black Patch- Part I and, his many back wounds

In Jim Marrs’ book, Crossfire, on pages 512-513, he examines the idea of an artificial black patch. This was used as a shadow to hide President Kennedy’s rear head wound in “Hollywood Takes a Look”. This shadow hides the head wound as described by the staff at Parkland Hospital. The head wound that was in the occipital region or rear of the skull.

The following Muchmore frame is not much for clarity. But, you can see there is something wrong with the back of President Kennedy’s head. It looks like a gaping hole. It looks like a gaping hole exactly where the Parkland doctors said it was. If this is the Parkland wound then it would have to be acquired on Main Street or in the intersection of Main and Houston. This is the reason Altgens 5, a much clearer 35 mm photo, had to be doctored with new imagery from the time the President was still alive and well.  The presidential limousine is in the same spot.

Because of the Zapruder film portraying the Grand Deception on Elm Street these kinds of photo / frames are not looked at seriously. This can’t have occurred because the Zapruder film shows the head wound happening on Elm Street in front of the Grassy Knoll. There will be more on this later.

The red arrow points to the same area that is covered by a black patch in films and photos.

Sidney Wilkenson and other Hollywood experts believe that the shadow on the back of President Kennedy’s head is not a shadow. But, rather an artifact painted in to disguise the massive head wound at the back of Kennedy’s head. This is based upon higher definition and magnification of the Zapruder film. She says this is egregiously so in Z frames 317, 321, 323 and others. This belief is backed up by many others.

With this evidence in hand we can come to the conclusion that the black patch seen in the Zapruder film is a painted artifact. These experts concentrate on Z frames such as 317 and later to make their arguments.

Once this idea was understood then the black patch can began to be seen in other places.In the autopsy drawings belowthere is no black patch. These are not photos but, line drawings signed by the artist. There is only 1 wound in the back and what appears to be a wound near in crown in his hair. Some say this is a blood clot. And, of course there is the wound showing the detached skull portion that is visible here. The drawing here does not show an exit wound in the back of the lower portion of the head, the occipital. It shows neither, an exit wound or, a black patch covering it.

The back wound is an exit wound based on its size. It is much larger than a 6.5 mm entrance wound. You can see an odd shape to the wound indicating a tumbling round. Compare this wound to the wounds seen in the actual photo on which this drawing was based.

This drawing does not show a black patch in the rear most section of his head just hair and some strange matter. In the left section everything is dark. When this drawing was first shown it was thought to be a photo by the History Channel due to being so well done. Compare this drawing to the autopsy photo appearing next.

There is definitely a black heart shaped patch covering the location that over 40 Parkland Hospital personnel described as a massive wound in the back of Kennedy’s head. A heart shaped patch? Someone has made a black humor statement stating what they think.

There are major, significant differences between the drawing and the photo. One of the major differences is more back wounds. These are described as blood clots that haven’t been washed away. The wounds are somewhat blurred here, later we will look at a sharper image. I take these alleged blood clots to be wounds.

Why? Because that is what they look like. They are not particularly savage or grotesque. These wounds suggest “short” rounds. These are rounds that have been lowered in power, by removing propellant from the cartridge, from about 2600-2800 fps for the average hi-powered rifle to below the sound barrier to about 1000 fps. The Carcano round moved at about 2000 fps. So, this would be lowering by half. Could you hear a round like this above the motorcade and crowd noise on Main Street, particularly when sound suppressed?

You can see the larger wound in the back similar to the drawing above. But, you can also see smaller wounds that are entrance wounds. One of which looks like a smaller version of the large exit wound. These are described as blood clots at the autopsy.

In earlier frames, just as soon as the back of President Kennedy’s head becomes visible from behind the Stemmons freeway sign. This black patch begins to become really noticeable at Z frame 232 which is a sharper frame. President Kennedy has it and Governor John Connolly doesn’t. Z frame 242 is another good example where President Kennedy has the black patch, Governor John Connolly doesn’t, and Secret Service Agent Roy Kellerman doesn’t. In Z frame 295 President Kennedy has one and everybody else does not.

With this notion of an artificial black shadow/patch in mind I began to start seeing this in other films and photos. Here is the infamous “hit x” frame from the Tina Towner film at the SE corner of the TSBD. Kennedy’s head is blacked out with an “X”. This scene indicating a head shot is inside the famous Zapruder gap. Exactly, where I have long suspected the imagery for the deception on Elm Street in front of the Grassy Knoll came from.


There are a number of interesting things in this photo. First, you can see a Dallas policeman on the fire escape and others blacked out. There are Dallas Policemen in the doorway of the TSBD. One policeman seems to be floating in the air. This indicates that the upper part of this frame was taken at a later time after the assassination.

You can clearly read the print “hit x”. It is at this point in the assassination you can begin to notice a blackened area associated with the back of President Kennedy’s head. Toni Glover said the President’s head exploded as the presidential vehicle turned into the intersection.

At about this time you have material such as this from the Towners.  This is from papa Towner:

Everything is bright and clear as the presidential vehicle enters the intersection of Elm and Houston Streets. There is no large dark shadows for anyone back of the head. This is what they, the cover up experts, want you to believe. This is a composite photo of scenes some taken elsewhere. President Kennedy’s head has not exploded at this point. This time in the image may come from earlier in the route.

In the Nellie Connally’s panel of the vehicle a street scene is shown. From where the Towners were on Elm Street what should be reflected, according to the Optical Law of Reflection, is Houston Street. Where are all the other motorcade vehicles on Houston Street? Where is the Secret Service vehicle? Motor bike cops? Others? The scene is from elsewhere.

The reflection shown is not the SW corner of Elm and Houston Street or Houston Street. What is shown on the rear of the vehicle is a view toward the Triple Underpass which is impossible at this angle. If Poppa Towner could film this then Daughter Towner should have a brightly lit film also. Instead she has this:

This is similar to the infamous “hit X” frame. If you look closely President Kennedy is slumped and looking downward. A circular black area covers the back of his head making it appear he is upright and looking at the TSBD doorway. He has been shot. His back brace is holding him erect.

They, the editors, forgot to black out the 4 or 5 Dallas policemen in the doorway and others close by. Their white police hats are a dead giveaway. The upper part of the film came from another film shot later in time after the assassination.

Here in Tina Towner all you have to do is liberally spray anything you do not want shown with black paint. You can see areas on the chrome where black paint has been accidentally applied as paint was sprayed close to the chrome areas. It is easy to see if you know art. You can cover the Kennedy head wound and black out the doorway of the TSBD. The shadowed part of the limousine is egregiously bad since there is not any reflections. There are no buildings or objects to provide shadow. There should be reflections since Poppa Towner’s photo is brightly lit.

You can black out the highly reflective side of the presidential limousine. Here is how the reflection on the side of the vehicle should look in a frame from the AMIPA film. This is from the shadow side rather than the sunlit side.

Here is Willis slide 4 for comparison.

Can you see the TSBD doorway in this Willis slide? No? Are you surprised? This is a cropped photo. But, it was not taken by Phil Willis. Phil Willis was not on the SW corner. This frame reflection shows the SW corner of Elm and Houston if Willis, perhaps Pierce Allman, took this photo from the SW corner directly across from the presidential limousine. The angles of reflection are equally shown in two directions here indicating a true reflection of the SW corner at that spot.

This creates a huge problem. In the Zapruder film there are 16 people on the SW corner of Elm and Houston. In the Elsie Dorman film there is 26 people there on the SW corner. How many can you count in this reflection on the side of the presidential limousine?  It is less than 16!

Here begins a list of other films and photos that show black patches:

Betzner photo- the motorcade is traveling toward the monument area. President Kennedy has a black patch and most everyone else does too. Maybe this indicates black patches really are shadows. If you believe this beware of real estate agents:

From the Nix Film- This has the presidential vehicle in front of the Grassy Knoll. Dwarf Mary is visible here. Kennedy has a light brown patch plus an obscuring black line to hide the back of this head. Dwarf Mary is taking her famous Polaroid and is in the street a la Jack White. She is a bit blurry compared to everyone else. This indicates poor photo editing. The painted black mark obscuring President Kennedy’s head is clear:



Here is the same from the Muchmore film. If this was filmed from Main St. then it should be a wider angle film with more showing than this. Compare the size or length of the limousine in the two frames.

The photo above really looks like Mary Moorman’s Polaroid. Notice the 3 guys in the background on the steps. They are the same in both Mary Moorman and Marie Muchmore in stance. The reflected glow of the left rear tire trim is the same in both photos. There is a shadow across the tire hub cap just below the center. It is the same in both photos. The shadows of the 3 men on the steps are the same. They move in the wrong direction. If they are not the same the appear the same. In the Muchmore frame we see the front tire is turning. This is different from the Nix frame. However, in most Nix and Muchmore frames we see the front tire turning. Strange, huh!

If you magnify the Muchmore frame and the Moorman Polaroid you will see that the upper part of President Kennedy’s shoulder is not done very well.
Here is Mary’s famous photo. Notice the black patch.

The Polaroid clearly shows a black patch / shadow that is deeper than what is shown for Governor John Connolly and or Jackie Kennedy.

Let’s go back to the Muchmore film. This scene is taken on Houston Street. It suggests a head wound.

A good portion of President Kennedy’s head seems to be missing in exactly the place as the wound described by Parkland Hospital staff in this Muchmore frame. Can this be true? Take a closer look.

In the next Muchmore frame President Kennedy should be sitting up waving to the crowd. Instead he is slumped over to the right. This frame suggests Kennedy was shot when the presidential vehicle first appears on Houston. Just where everyone theorizes the assassination should have taken place.

Next is a Willis photo. I believe it is Willis slide 5. It is amazingly like the Betzner Photo above. President Kennedy has a black patch and so does everyone else. I suppose so that Kennedy’s patch will not be lonely. The black patches for individuals are large, small, rectangular, circular, and some fit the head nicely and others don’t.

Something can be seen through the monument area. It is certainly not a train as shown earlier in Life Magazine. This is a better attempt at consistency than most photos and films. The window spaces are clearly irregular suggesting they are hand painted.

Here is an example of Kennedy’s head wound on Houston Street from the John Martin film:

And, also from the Martin film the potential fix that wasn’t blacken out into a patch. In both frames we see a triangular area cut out in the back of President Kennedy’s head. You can see the wall of the Court House through his head.  This removed the obvious head wound that would be seen on the back of President Kennedy’s head described by the Parkland doctors. This should have been filled in with black paint to suggest a shadow.  But, it wasn’t.  Sloppy work!


If you look you will surely find more of this. Let’s summarize:

• Hollywood film experts indicate that starting at Zapruder Z frame 313 President Kennedy’s shadow on the rear of his head is not a shadow, but an artifact painted there. They called this a black patch to hide his rear occipital head wound.  This is in Jim Marrs book Crossfire.
• Experts say this is really bad and noticeable on Z frames 317, 321, and 323.
• The black patch can be seen earlier in the Zapruder film as soon as the rear of President Kennedy’s head becomes visible after passing the Stemmons freeway sign.
• The black patch can be seen early and clearly in Z frames 232, 242, and 295.
• The Tina Towner film has President Kennedy head covered with black paint in the “hit x” frame. Other frames show a black patch.
• One of Hugh Betzner’s photos has the back of President Kennedy’s head covered with a circular black patch. Others have rectangles with some not quite fitting the head naturally.
• Frames from the Orville Nix film show the rear of President Kennedy’s head obscured by black paint.
• In the Mary Muchmore film frame President Kennedy has a black patch or obscuring mark.
• In Mary Moorman’s Polaroid President Kennedy has a large black patch covering the wound area as described at Parkland Hospital.
• Next comes two early Muchmore frames suggesting something may have happened on Houston Street or in the intersection. There are strange things there.

• The last photo looked at is Willis slide 5. Everyone in the photo in the presidential vehicle and the Secret Service vehicle seems to have acquired a black patch of some sort.
• Notice there are only two men standing on the stairs going up to the monument area. This is different from Moorman’s photo.
• The John Martin film shows the head wound on Houston and the potential fix for it that never happened.  These are triangular cut out areas at the back of President Kennedy’s head directly where the Parkland doctors described a large gaping head wound.

What is your conclusion after looking at these frames and photos?
