read a book some years ago that my dad had on the topic. Can't recall the title (and someone PLEASE send me a message if you know it!), but it was
written by a gun and ballistics expert, that initially set out to prove Oswald did it.
He presented fantastic evidence, based on all the video and pictures available, and extrapolating the angle of the shots. What he found was (and I
think he was right) was that the actual fatal shot came from a Secret Service member's rifle, that misfired as the SS man was trying to raise up and
That explanation would make perfect sense as to why they would not reveal the facts. The man's life would have been ruined, for starters, for a
complete accident, and the nation would have lost a lot of confidence in the government, at an already shaky period in history.
One interesting tidbit from the book was a comment that LBJ was supposed to have made not too long after. Something to the effect of telling the SS
vehicle behind his to "back the %$" off".
Always been the theory I have favored, since I heard it.
EDITED _ Located the book title - Mortal Error. Link to info about it included.
