JFK: The Smoking Gun — Get Five Key Pieces of Evidence Revealed in the Upcoming Documentary
09.27.13 by Mandy
In the late 1960s, expert marksman Howard Donahue was involved in an experiment to prove that Lee Harvey Oswald was acting alone on that fateful November day in 1963. Though he proved that it was indeed possible for a lone gunman to fire all three shots, the experiment left the ballistics expert with many questions about Kennedy’s death. From that day, Donahue started down a path looking for clues that could reveal the truth about JFK’s assassination. Though he found the answers he was searching for, his analyses were largely ignored by the public and completely ignored by the government. Now Detective Colin McLaren has done a thorough analysis of Donahue’s findings, and found that they are consistent with his investigation which involved modern-day forensic evidence as well as a plethora of eyewitness accounts. McLaren will present their findings in the upcoming documentary JFK: The Smoking Gun which premieres Sunday, November 3rd, right here on REELZ. We've put together five key points that were integral in Donahue's conclusion. Check them out to see if you can figure out where the smoking gun was located.
1. The trajectory of the final bullet was such that it could not have been shot by someone on the 6th floor of a building. It could have only come from somewhere closer to the ground.
2. Several eyewitnesses on the ground in Dealey Plaza mentioned smelling gunpowder. These witnesses could not have possibly smelled gunpowder from a rifle fired from the Book Depository.
3. Witnesses heard Kennedy exclaim "My God! I'm hit!" If the first shot had actually been the one that hit Kennedy's neck, he would have been unable to speak.
4. The entry wound in Kennedy’s skull was actually smaller than the caliber of ammo that Oswald was using.
5.The first two shots were clearly from full-metal-jacket rounds, but the final shot seemed to be made from a softer metal.
