New JFK Bullet Analysis Draws Further Interest

The University of Kentucky hosted a presentation featuring the award winning study of the JFK bullet analysis which casts doubt on the theory that the bullets used in the murder of John F. Kennedy came from one gunman. Dr. Simon Sheather, one of the authors of the study spoke on the findings on September 18 at the William T. Young Library Auditorium.
From news channel 18, Lexington Kentucky:"A Texas A&M professor who spoke at the University of Kentucky Thursday says there's good reason to believe that Lee Harvey Oswald was not the only person responsible for the murder of John F. Kennedy.Through his research, Dr. Simon Sheather has lent a fresh perspective to the decades old debate over who shot JFK on November 22, 1963 in Dallas. "I was a 5-year-old child in Australia (at the time of the assassination) and I didn't grow up with all of the theories," said Dr. Sheather.Now a statistician at Texas A&M, Dr. Sheather reopened the evidence against Oswald and looked specifically at the tests run on the bullets from the crime scene by a respected chemist."(The chemist) found three of the fragments matched, like three pieces of an M&M fit together," said Dr. Sheather. "And two of the other fragments matched, meaning there were just two bullets and one shooter - Lee Harvey Oswald."But what if today's more advanced bullet testing found there were three bullets? That could mean Lee Harvey Oswald had an accomplice. "We're pushing for the case to have the bullet fragments from the JFK assassination reanalyzed," said Dr. Sheather. "They're in the national archive. Have them reanalyzed. I think it's more likely than not that there was a third bullet in play."For Dr. Sheather, the odds of that are great enough that he thinks history needs a review and possibly, a rewrite. "Justice is always a good thing," he said."
