The back wound bullet never left the body of JFK, and so never hit Connally,
and therefore there is NO 'single bullet' THEORY.
If the bullet that caused Kennedy's back wound never exited, where did
that bullet go to? How do you then explain the throat wound? Are you
implying the throat wound was a wound of entrance? If so, where did that
bullet go to? You're asking us to believe there were two magic bullets,
both of which disappeared. If the bullet that stuck Connolly's back didn't
first pass through Kennedy's neck and tumble upon exiting the president,
why was Connolly's back wound elongated and shaped exactly like CE399?
Where is your supporting "physical evidence" that anything other than a
single bullet passing through both Kennedy and Connolly actually occurred?
Thank you for asking in a civilized manner, which is not so common
here. To answer, first, the throat wound was indeed from the front. It
was strangely enlarged far more than the average tracheostomy usually is.
That is probably because Humes and Boswell had orders to remover ALL
bullets and fragments from the body when the body got to them at Bethesda.
Howwever, there is a comment from an X-ray Technician, Jerrol Custer, who
testified as follows:
"When I lifted the body up to take films of
the torso, and the lumbar spine, and the pelvis,
this is when a king-size fragment - I’d say -
estimate around three, four sonometers - fell from
the back. And this is when Dr. Finck come over
with a pair of forceps, picked it up, and took -
That’s the last time I ever saw it.
Now, it was big enough -That’s about,
I’d say, an inch and a half. My finger-my small
finger. First joints."
Sonometer = centimeter, and 3-4 centimeters is long enough to be many
types of bullet.
And to give you more information on the back wound from the autopsy,
which wasn't reported correctly by Humes. Here are the words of Paul
O'Connor, Technologist and member of the autopsy team:
"O'Connor: We started out with a rigid probe and found that it only went
in so far. I'd say maybe an inch and a quarter. It didn't go any further
than that. So we used a malleable probe and bent it a little bit and found
out that the bullet entered the body, went through the intercostal
muscles—the muscles in between the ribs. The bullet went in
through the muscles, didn't touch any of the ribs, arched downwards, hit
the back of the pleural cavity, which encases the lungs, both front and
back. It bounced off that cavity and stopped. It actually went down and
stopped. Went through the ribs and stopped (photo 10). So we didn't know
the track of the bullet until we eviscerated the body later. That's what
happened at that time. We traced the bullet path down and found out it
didn't traverse the body. It did not go in one side and come out the other
side of the body.
Law: You can be reasonably sure of that?
Law: It was just from the probe then?
O'Connor: Oh yes.
Law: And these doctors knew that?
Law: While it happened?
O'Connor is corroborated by the other Technologist James Jenkins.
