“According to investigative journalist Jim Marrs, a new study of JFK’s autopsy reveals falsification of X-ray evidence. Marrs, author of the best-selling book, “Crossfire,” claims that the famous bullet fragment depicted in the autopsy X-ray is an artifact superimposed on the X-ray after JFK’s autopsy.
The X-ray fabrication, which could not have been done without the knowledge of high-level federal officials, was the topic of a recent paper by Dr David Mantik published in Medical Research Archives, an international journal with a focus on new research.”
One name jumped out at me in this story from the Australian National Review.
Larry Sturdivan, ballistics consultant to the House Select Commission on Assassinations, studied the fragment dubbed “the most curious and unsolved mystery in the history of diagnostic radiology” and concluded it could not be metal, according to Marrs.
Although the HSCA had relied on the fragment’s authenticity as key evidence in connecting the bullet piece to Oswald, Sturdivan was not convinced that the piece he was examining was a cross-section from the interior of a bullet.
So what was it?
