ARRB Medical Testimony

Because of the highly controversial and conflicted medical testimony
in the JFK assassination, and the lack of a chain-of-custody for so
many important evidentiary materials, the ARRB decided to conduct
sworn depositions to "clarify the medical evidence."

In 1996 through 1998, testimony was taken from nine persons present at
Kennedy's autopsy, two others who were involved in processing or
disseminating photographs of the autopsy, and five doctors who treated
JFK in Parkland Hospital in Dallas. For those familiar with the
medical evidence in the case, these detailed interviews contain a
wealth of material and have fueled the debate over the nature of
Kennedy's wounds and the direction of shots which caused them.

Some of the testimony directly impugns the very authenticity of
autopsy materials. For instance, the ARRB interviewed Saundra Kay
Spencer, who processed autopsy photographs the weekend of the
assassination, and testified that the photos now in the National
Archives are not the ones she developed. Similarly autopsy
photographer John Stringer disavowed the photos of the brain held in
the Archives. These depositions are "must reading" for those with an
interest in the medical aspects of the case.

Question
The brain photographs in the National Archives that are purported to
be photographs of President Kennedy's brain are not what they are
represented to be;

Did the Kennedy family have anything to do with the missing brain?
Bobby perhaps

JFK's brain has never been found, and was presumably later interred
with the President at Arlington. ...

What happened to Kennedy's Brain? - The Kennedy Assassination ...
http://mcadams.posc.mu.edu/brain.txt

(1) The autopsy report in evidence today, Warren Commission Exhibit
387, is the third version prepared of that report; it is not the sole
version, as was claimed for years by those who wrote it and signed it.

(2) The brain photographs in the National Archives that are purported
to be photographs of President Kennedy’s brain are not what they are
represented to be; they are not pictures of his brain, but rather are
photographs of someone else’s brain

(3) There is something seriously wrong with the autopsy photographs of
the body of President Kennedy. It definitely is President Kennedy in
the photographs, but the images showing the damage to the President’s
head do not show the pattern of damage observed by either the medical
professionals at Parkland hospital in Dallas, or by numerous witnesses
at the military autopsy at Bethesda Naval hospital. These disparities
are real and are significant, but the reasons remain unclear.

Comment:please.
To me, the most ignored revelation from this series of interviews is
Finck's adamant recall of a "second" brain autopsy on 11/29, which he
believed to be the one and only brain autopsy. Remember, he arrived late
at the initial autopsy and by then the brain was "missing" (if there ever
was one in Kennedy's empty skull; many testified that they could both
hands inside the wound and pull them out again; Paul O'Connor, Denis David
and others said on the night of 11/22 there was "no brain.") Yet, somehow
there is weight given on the autopsy sheet of a brain weighing 1500g. With
amount of damage done, this is highly unlikely, if not damn impossible.
Yet, Finck, on 11/29 is called in to autopsy the brain. This is where the
"fake brain" was introduced. Two brain autopsies? Sounds preposterous,
right? It's Liftonesque. Yet both Jeremy Gunn and Doug Horne, who
conducted the interviews cited in the previous post, have stated there is
no other conclusion to come to.

Liftongly Yours,

Yep, she thought she developed set with a much nicer, less mangled
view of Kennedy's bodk.

Interestingly, that contradicts all the *other* ARRB witnesses you
quote.

It's also impossible to see why any conspiracy would want nicer
versions of the photos.

And so did O'Neill. But Stringer and O'Neill flatly contradicted
*each other.*

But hey, ignore that, since it's inconvenient.

Interesting that the buffs want to ignore *this* from Stringer, and
latch onto 30 year-old testimony.
