JFK was NOT killed by a 'grassy knoll' gunman: New calculations confirm the fatal bullet was fired from behind the president, suggesting Lee Harvey Oswald was the sole shooter
Despite the arrest of Lee Harvey Oswald and subsequent analyses that showed JFK’s wounds lined up with the type of rifle Oswald owned, skeptics have proposed there was a second gunman standing on a hill to the front of the motorcade. Now, a new study could finally help put the debate to rest. New calculations based on the video recordings of the assassination indicate that the mysterious movement of the president’s head after being shot – a crucial detail in the grassy knoll theory – was the result of a recoil effect. The findings also show that the fatal bullet impact was immediately followed by a forward head snap, adding further proof that JFK was shot from behind, as the official autopsy indicated.
