THE LOCATION OF
JFK'S BACK WOUND


WHERE WAS THE BULLET HOLE LOCATED?
IN THE "NECK"?
IN THE "BACK"?
IN THE "BACK OF THE NECK"?
WHERE?


------------------------------------------------------------------

I think everyone would probably agree that part of the problem that
exists with respect to lining up President Kennedy's upper-back wound
and his throat wound is the fact that there is no specific autopsy
photograph in existence that can readily illustrate the relationship
between those two key wounds at the same time.

But I think that the autopsy photo shown below of President Kennedy,
which has been turned sideways for proper orientation, does a pretty
good job of accomplishing that task (although, of course, we still can't
physically see the hole in JFK's upper back here):



Via the above photo, it's very easy to illustrate the fact that the wound
in President Kennedy's upper back was certainly well ABOVE the wound
in the front of the neck/throat. Because if a line is drawn straight across
from the throat wound toward JFK's back in the above photograph (even
allowing for the limitations of such crude line-drawing on a two-dimensional
photograph, which really cannot be done and expect complete accuracy
regarding specific measurements), where would that place a wound on
the "back" portion of John Kennedy's body? Certainly not anywhere near
the "neck". And also nowhere near where we find the actual upper-back
wound via the autopsy photo of Kennedy's back.

And if you want to buy the HSCA junk about the back wound being
anatomically LOWER than the throat wound, there's even a bigger
differential, which would place the back wound practically in the
MIDDLE portion of JFK's back...which is just silly.

Just compare it to this picture:



The "crimp" in JFK's neck is a good guide to use in both of the above
autopsy photographs. The "crimp" appears to me to be located
approximately three inches above the wound. So we need to estimate
about three inches below the "neck crimp" in this photo:



Where would the wound be located based on that crimp estimate?
Certainly not anywhere NEAR the very BOTTOM of that picture (which
is where the wound would have to be located in order for it to be at
"throat wound level").

This isn't exactly rocket science.

Here's a side-by-side comparison of the two autopsy photographs:



The Single-Bullet Theory works. Period.
