Death Deception, (The Framing of Lee Harvey Oswald), Part V.
By S.r. “Dusty” Rohde

*AUTHOR’S NOTE: At the beginning of this series, I suggested that people should refrain from critiquing overly much what is being presented until seeing all of the articles. In the previous article (Part IV), I stated what I was about to post would be “controversial” and I also mentioned that you should pay more attention to what you read, rather than what you see in the previous article. I stated the previous article would be controversial, as it was intended to be just that. An explanation will be forthcoming in this article. As one of my favorite radio personalities (Paul Harvey) would say, “Now for the rest of the story”.
I had hoped that the previous article would create more “controversy” than I actually saw from the assertion that a possible bullet was captured in several frames of the Zapruder film. Only two individuals pointed out that this would not be possible (in consecutive frames) due to the speed of travel of a bullet versus film frame speeds of the Zapruder film. While this is technically correct, it is also a bit misleading. One individual suggested that the bullet speed was around 1700 FPS (Feet per Second). This is actually incorrect; the bullet speed of a 6.5 round from the Mannlicher-Carcano is over 2,000 FPS, so is actually even faster than 1700 FPS. So, it is true, a bullet could not be captured in consecutive frames, but does not mean a bullet could not be captured in any individual frames. If a bullet was indeed captured in any of the frames between Z-310 to Z-317, the most likely frame is Z-314. We may never know the answer until our technology advances.
But, what I stated in the previous article is that whether any bullet was captured or not in the Zapruder film, “it makes no difference“. It makes no difference because the trajectory remains identical, bullet or no bullet. What I didn’t show you, is all of the information related to this bullet trajectory. The TRAJECTORY is what is critically important, not the bullet. This is what I need to make everyone understand. The true bullet trajectory is what I need to burn into people’s memories, so that in the future, you will not be deceived by anyone.
Understanding any of the evidence related to the case of the murder of President Kennedy is based upon ones having the correct “perception”. Without accurate perception, understanding what actually took place on the 22nd of November will not be possible.
Let me explain by relating some stories this way. A father fly explained to his son, “My son, do you see that man over there? He has been alive all of my life, all of my father’s life, all of my grandfather’s life and every one of my grandfather’s lives, as far back as our memory goes . . . truly men are gods”, (in the eyes of a fly). Or perhaps I can demonstrate in this way, if I ask you, “If you take two apples from three apples, how many do you have”. Normally most people reply “One apple”, which of course is wrong . . . if you take two, you have two. If I ask you, “If you have a four sided house, all four sides face south and a big bear walks by, what color is the bear”. When I ask someone that question, I almost always receive a blank stare from the person I asked and they respond by saying, “A bear? What does a bear have to do with it”? Obviously, if the house has four sides all facing South, the bear is white…as the house is on the North Pole. The lesson here is that critical thinking leads to correct perception, both of which are required to resolve the problems and understanding the issue at hand with clarity.
Now, let me give you the remaining info about the bullet trajectory that hit JFK in the back of the head, from behind. I showed you in the previous article the image with the entry and exit points marked, (see below).
The bottom two images (shown above) are the true entry and exit wounds already described in previous articles. These wounds result in the identical trajectory in the top image, (bullet or no bullet captured in any Z-film frame). As I mentioned before, the trajectory is such that the bullet causing these entry and exit wounds (fired from behind) would still be on target to strike the front windshield, and can be traced back to the Dal-Tex building. Now let me explain something else about this particular bullet trajectory that I did not mention or show previously.
In the official Warren Report, the WC made the determination that a bullet “missed” it’s intended target ( ), struck the curb farther ahead of the President’s limo and then a fragment of this bullet (or possibly a piece of concrete from this strike) goes forward and injures James Tague ( ). James Tague was standing near the freeway overpass, ahead of the limo ( ). If I were a CTer, at this point, it would be greatly to my advantage to agree with the Warren Report stating this shot missed, as it adds to the number of shots fired in total which is more than three. But, I need to show you all something. This particular bullet trajectory, by an amazing coincidence, just happens to line up with the bullet that struck the curb! (See Next Image)
You can also see that this bullet trajectory passes through the limo in the correct location per the entry and exit wounds known to exist on JFK’s head, and strike the windshield.If you enlarge the image shown above, what is immediately apparent is that this same trajectory happens to very, very coincidentally line up with the bullet strike on the curb, the alleged “missed” shot (See next image).
Now, it has already clearly been demonstrated in previous articles that J.J. Humes and Ida Dox committed fraud, and that there is clear indication that a concerted effort is being made to frame Oswald. There is no possible way this bullet was fired from the curb towards the limo, meaning a frontal shot, impossible! No one was at this curb when the shots were fired. Is it really conceivable that another bullet was fired at this exact same trajectory, missed its intended target and strikes the curb? That is what the Warren Commission wants everyone to believe. The shot striking the curb was a missed shot? Don’t believe it! To make the “magic” and “Pristine” bullet of the Single Bullet Theory work, this shot still had to be accounted for. The only problem being is that it can’t be shown to hit anyone in the limo, LOL. One “magic” bullet, and one shot to JFK’s head left them no choice but to say this shot missed. Either that or admit the truth, that there was more than three shots and shots didn’t originate from where they claimed.
I also need to point out, that the Dal-Tex building was the only location behind the limo with a clear field of fire. (See next image).
The Yellow line shows the clear field of fire from the Dal-Tex building, the Red circles show the trees blocking the view from both, the TSBD and the Courts building. The FBI had documented that the shooters view of JFK from the TSBD was blocked by trees a good part of the time ( ).
Researchers and JFK assassination enthusiasts have ask dozens of times, “Why didn’t Oswald take the shot as the limo was coming down Houston Street (Houston Street indicated in Blue, previous image). There is a very simple answer to that, because the shooter in the Dal-Tex building taking the kill shot didn’t have a shot on the limo until after it turned down on Elm Street and Oswald never fired a shot. I also need to point out that in James Tague’s testimony, he stated he was hit “after the second shot” ( ). Tague doesn’t say exactly how long after, but this back of head shot from the Dal-Tex building was indeed “after” the second shot. With shots coming from the Dal-Tex building, directly behind the TSBD, it would be difficult to tell the difference in shot origins, with the buildings so close together.
There is another factor I would like to add to the evidence already presented. While this image is not exact, it is close enough for demonstration purposes. According to past research, JFK’s head was turned approximately 26 degrees when he was hit in the head in Zapruder film frame 313. In this next image, you can easily see that this trajectory from the Dal-Tex building is would be an easy match. Note the blue line crossing the skull (See next image).
Once again, I’ll show you the trajectories from a different angle. The yellow line in the next image represents the trajectory from the sixth floor window of the TSBD. The purple line represents the trajectory from the Dal-Tex building. (See next image).
You can see that the trajectory coming from the Dal-Tex building would have hit the windshield. The trajectory coming from the TSBD would have caused the bullet to hit the interior of the vehicle or possibly Jackie Kennedy or Nellie Connally, (as the angle of trajectory is much greater left to right to the limo, diagonally). No such damage was found to the limo per FBI and Secret Service reports ( ). Nor was either of the two wives hit by any bullets or fragments. You may have to enlarge the previous image to see it very well, apologies for that. Again, the image is not intended to be exact, but good enough for demonstration purposes.
Last but not least, take a look at the enlarged film frame Z-240 of the Zapruder film. (See next image)
As JFK has his arms lifted to his throat, look closely at the windshield. There is no indication of any bullet damage. This gives credence and greater confirmation that it was indeed the bullet fired from the Dal-Tex building that impacted the windshield and not a frontal throat shot.
Okay, enough with the back of head shot from the Dal-Tex building. I want to start examining the evidence of the “frontal” headshot to JFK. To start with, I want to share a diagram made by Lt. Col. Pierre A. Finck, another of the Bethesda Autopsy physicians involved with JFK’s autopsy. (See next image)
What Dr. Finck is demonstrating, is that bullet entrance wounds are typically smaller than their resulting exits wounds (Shown above, red and blue marks were added by myself). Anyone who has ever had much use of weapons already knows this, from experience. There are exceptions to this, but they are somewhat rarer. Exit wounds sizes can vary drastically relative to the caliber and type of bullet used. In the case of a standard 6.5 Mannlicher-Carcano round, the size of the exit hole is considerable. In the case of a .303 round fired from a WWII British Enfield rifle, the resulting exit hole would be massive, and would likely take most of a human head completely off. Generally speaking though…in most cases a bullet entry wound is a small neat round hole (See next image).
As you can see, in the image to the far left, shown above, JFK’s back entry wound is a small neat round hole. In the middle image the wound to the head (as described by Richard Lipsey) was a small neat round hole. In the far right image is the skull of a cadaver used by the HSCA to test fire the Mannlicher-Carcano 6.5 rounds into for wound comparison. Here again, the entry wound is a small round hole. I imagine you get the idea by now.
The resulting exit wounds of the middle image and far right image shown above are shown in the next image (See below).
As you can easily see, the exit wounds shown in the above images were massive and many times larger than their correlating entry wounds, there is zero doubt about this. The image on the right is of course the large exit blowout wound in the temporal region, fired from the Dal-Tex building located behind the limo. With this in mind, a frontal shot by comparison, should also have a very large exit wound and a small entry wound. So, to refresh everyone’s memory, the next image reflects part of the large blowout to the back of JFK’s head. (See below)
Okay, we are going to have to take a look at one of JFK’s X-rays, and revisit Dr. Boswell’s testimony I provided in previous articles. (See next image).
In this X-ray of JFK’s head, the Plaster of Paris placed inside the empty brain cavity is visible. This is the same area as in the second to last image, where the white oval outline is visible under the hair. Also the same location where the numerous witnesses testified they saw this sizeable wound. Once again, the same location that the Doctor’s represent in their drawings and the same location to which Dr. Boswell stated is the “more posterior” area where they had neither enough scalp nor the missing fragment(s) to fill. The area’s outlined in Blue and Red, in the right image is not bone. The two areas are actually Plaster of Paris that the morticians from Gawler’s Funeral Home applied. There are a couple of notable aspects that relate to this particular X-ray. First, this X-ray was made “after” the autopsy had been completed. Second, this X-ray was also made before the morticians had fully packed JFK’s empty brain cavity with the Plaster of Paris. How do we know this? Very simple, had the morticians fully completed packing the empty skull cavity, the dark region in the front part of the skull would not exist. This area would show up very white, same as the areas outlined in blue and red. The areas outlined in red and blue is the resulting exit wound of a frontal head shot.
I noted in previous articles, J.J. Humes was going to be thrown under the bus, as the HSCA made the lower back of head wound vanish, and moved their new back of head wound up (by four inches). What members of the HSCA discovered was that there were actually two identifiable bullet tracks, completely unrelated to each other ( ). Since the upper bullet track helped hide the low bullet trajectory from the Dal-Tex building, AND matched the trajectory of the TSBD far better, the HSCA moved the back of head wound approximately 4 inches higher (See next image).
In the HSCA investigation, this drawing was submitted representing the new and improved bullet trajectory, albeit, they still maintained this bullet came from behind. In the image above, the HSCA represented the “entry” wound with the letter “A” and the “exit” wound with the letter “B”, according to the “second” bullet tract. The only problem being of course is that the “small neat round hole” already demonstrated for you, was in the forehead, and the large exit wound was in fact in the back of the head. Also make note of all the small black spots through the top of the skull, these are supposed to represent bullet fragments, according to the HSCA medical evaluation.
Isn’t it interesting that the Warren Commission and the House Select Committee on Assassinations have identified two entirely different bullet tracts, independently of each other?
While the head wound low in the back of the head was made to entirely disappear, in spite of all the witnesses, autopsy report, Rydberg drawings, etc., the wound trajectory displayed in the above image makes complete sense, with the exception that the trajectory is reversed. The reason the HSCA is doing this is once again, to stick to the “3 shot, Lone Assassin Theorem”.
Okay, let’s use a little common sense, with the help of a couple of photo comparisons. Note in the previous image the location of “B”, the alleged “exit” wound by the HSCA. Bear in mind that again, exit wounds are normally larger than entry wounds. This is especially true of the 6.5 round from a Mannlicher-Carcano rifle. (See next image)
On the image (shown above), the area circled in Red is the alleged “exit” wound according to the HSCA. The image on the right shows the resulting “exit” wound from test firing the 6.5 Mannlicher-Carcano round into the back of the test skull. Does anyone not notice an extreme difference? The “exit” wound test fired into a cadaver’s skull blew the entire front of the face off and as we can clearly see, JFK has nearly all of his face intact. This difference exists because the image to the left is an entry wound and on the right image, an exit wound. Take a closer look at the X-ray of JFK’s skull. You can see the bullet entry wound just inside the red ring; the entry wound shows up as a slightly irregular white circle. (See next image)
The blue dot in the previous image is the approximate exit wound. The purple outline is the Plaster of Paris which shows the approximate size of a back of head “blowout”. This is a complete reversal of what we see in the HSCA Test Skull, where the bullet was fired into the back of the head and exits the front. (See next image)
Let me say it one more time, JFK’s x-ray shows a frontal shot, the HSCA test firing shows the results of a shot to the back of the head. The images, just as the shots, are polar opposites. The HSCA test firing is consistent with a shot from behind as is the shot fired from the Dal-Tex building and resulting blowout. (See next image).
So then you might ask “which shot came first”. The answer to that question is also fairly obvious for a few reasons. In the Zapruder frame 313, anyone who has seen the film sees the blowout on the side of JFK’s head. What you don’t see is any damage at this point to the area blown out indicated in the X-ray, or in Z-313. (See next image).
This image of Z-313 shows no blowout of the back of the head (inside the red ring, which is the back of the head and right rear side of the head.
When JFK was shot in the back, that shot was not fatal, this is fairly obvious as he is still moving around as seen in the Zapruder film. The shot from the Dal-Tex building causes severe damage to the head, almost certainly rendering him unconscious at the least and very likely instantly dead. What does that mean? After the shot to the back, JFK’s brain and synaptic knobs are still sending electrical pulses to his muscles. He is conscious and moving. When he is hit in the back of the head, these functions cease. Then the frontal head shot hits, and what are the results? The results are just as everyone has been quoting for years, “Back and to the left”. Why back and to the left? When the frontal head shot hits, JFK’s body is already leaning far to the left. So, when the bullet impacts from the front, transferring massive amounts of kinetic energy in the process, there are no electrical pulses from the brain to tell the muscles to resist. JFK’s body simply reacts to the impact force, flying backwards. As his body was already leaning far to the left, he then rolls to his left as his upper body mass (weight) was already off center to his left. Ladies and gentlemen, there were two shooters firing these two bullets. Neither one of these shooters was Lee Harvey Oswald, as neither shot originated from the TSBD.
The next image shows the approximate horizontal trajectories of the two head shots (See next image).
One more obvious point showing that these two shots could not have been fired from the same location is the trajectories themselves. If these trajectories were extended outward to the rear and to the front, they would be 15 feet or more apart. No single shooter could have fired two shots from so far apart in such a short time, (POW, POW). No single shooter would have had enough time to reposition themselves, not to mention there was obviously no one running around Dealey Plaza from point A to point B shooting.
Whoever took the frontal shot, had to be in the area of the South Knoll, as Sherry Fiester discusses in her book “Enemy of the Truth”. The South Knoll area also happens to have a clear field of fire. The shot from the front had to come from the direction and area inside the purple cone, per the bullet trajectory.
Before I end this segment I’d like to point out one more item, for any of you who still harbor any doubts to whether Lee Harvey Oswald fired any shots from the TSBD, think on this.
The types of elevators used in the Texas School Book Depository in 1963 were the old type where the gates (doors) have to be manually closed. These types of elevators were supplied with some built in safety features. One of those features is that the elevator will not move with the gates even partially open. The other feature is that the gates were designed so that a person could not stick their arms through the gates once closed. In an article posted a couple of weeks back by Rob Clark, I noticed part of the article where DPD police said they couldn’t call the elevators because the gates were stuck closed. That statement is incorrect. If the gates were closed, the elevators would be able to be called to other floors. It is only when the gates are open, that no one can call the elevator to a different floor. This is very important. In Barry Ernst’s book, “Girl on the Stairs”, the book explains how Lee Harvey Oswald didn’t use the stairs to go to the second room break room. Oswald was reportedly found in the break room with a soda.
Vicki Adams, the subject of Mr. Ernst’s book ( and assassination witness) walked down the stairs (from the fourth floor of the TSBD with another witness) immediately after the shots were fired. Long story short is Oswald wasn’t on the stairs at the same time Vicki Adams was…so, unless Oswald flew to the second floor, logic says he would have had to use the elevator. Here lies the problem.
Just for fun, let’s say Oswald is on the sixth floor, takes the shots, hides the rifle, and calls the elevator, if it isn’t already at the sixth floor. Oswald would then have to take the elevator down to the second floor to get to the break room, so far, so good. But, Dallas Police also reported that the elevators were stuck on the fifth floor. Sooo, how did they get there? If Oswald gets off the elevator at the second floor, he can’t send the elevator back to the fifth floor. First, you have to close the gates (doors) before the elevator will move, and if the gates are closed, you can’t stick your hand through to punch the button for the 5th floor. It’s a bit of a problem, isn’t it?
On the other hand, Bonnie Ray Williams testified that he took the elevator down to the 5th floor immediately prior to the shots being fired from the sixth floor window. Let’s think about this for a minute. Bonnie Ray Williams leaves his lunch sack and soda sitting at the sixth floor window where he said he was having lunch. Bonnie Ray was sitting at the sixth floor window, around the same time frame that the sniper should be preparing to take the shots, (and he didn’t notice the shooter)? Then, Bonnie Ray Williams has “debris” in his hair, no one else does, just Bonnie Ray. I mean, Bonnie Ray claimed to have taken the elevator to the fifth floor just before the shots, where his other sixth floor co-workers were located. It seems to me, that if somebody fired a rifle inside an old warehouse, the shock wave would very easily knock dirt or debris from overhead off of the rafters, and the debris would fall on your head, if you were in the same room. Then think on this, if in fact Oswald was already on the second floor when the shots were fired and no one used the stairs immediately AFTER the shots were fired AND the elevators are stuck on the fifth floor with the gates open, unable to be called, it means the shooter is stuck on the fifth floor, after all, the shooter wasn’t on the stairs. I mean, Police searched the roof and sixth floor, no one was there. The only place above the fourth floor where Vicki Adams and friend got on the stairs is the fifth floor and she stated no one else used the stairs sooo, who was on the fifth floor? 😀
*AUTHOR’S NOTE: More to come folks, sorry for the delay in posting this article, but deciding how to make these images in the best way to present them was a bit of a challenge. Stay tuned for Article VI of “Death Deception”.
