Dr. Cyril Wecht wears two hats. He is a lawyer as well as a physician.
Occassionally, the lawyer upstages the physician. Wecht, like Dr.
Baden, is a high priced medical-legal expert witness.
F. Lee Bailey, who wrote the Forward to Dr. Wecht's book, Cause of
Death, had this to say about the doctor - lawyer.
"Cyril Wecht is the best medical, research expert witness in the
country, the bigger and tougher the case to solve,the more you need
In Cause of Death, Dr. Wecht tells us that about a year after the
assassination, he was asked to review the Warren Commission Report and
deliver a paper on the subject in Chicago. To prepare, Dr. Wecht
says," I spent ... several days...Oy Vay ! . at the Carnegie Library
in Pittsburgh reading the twenty-six volume WC report...My first
conclusion after reading the report-and this is what I told my fellow
medical examiners-was that it was a botched autopsy, a terrible piece
of medico legal investigation..."
Perhaps the good doctor should have spent more than a few days
reading from the famous volumes. On page 19 of Cause of Death we
"As doctors scurried to save the leader of our nation, supply him
with oxygen, and replace the blood he had lost, one amazing fact
popped up; no one , not even the Secret Service, not his aids , not
even his wife knew what the president's blood type was. While it could
have become a critical issue, it ended up being nothing more than an
interesting footnote in history."
A few more days in the library would have provided Dr. Wecht with
the following testimony:
"We immediately secured the corridor of the emergency room
area,furnished the blood type of the President to the medical staff
upon their request."
ROY KELLERMAN at 12:38 pm
"...Someone came out of the room that the President was in and
asked if anyone knew the blood type. ASAIC Kellerman and SA Hill
immediately reached for their wallets. ASAIC Kellerman gave the man
the information first."
Statement from Paul A. Landis, SA
"While trying to locate Mr. O'Donnell for the Vice-President, I
came acros ASAIC Roy Kellerman, who was assisting someone to fill in
the Presidnt's blood type on a card, I remarked that it was the same
as mine, Blood type O, Rh. Positive. Kellerman had card in his hand
which he got from his wallet with the President's blood type."
Statement of Emery P. Roberts-ASAIC.
About Oswald; On page 20;
"He allegedly was a Cuban sympathizer who had defected to Russia in
1959, where he was given full citizenship, a job , and an apartment in
the Ukranian city of Minsk."
Not right! Never full citizenship.
"Federal agents announced that Oswald had purchased from a
CALIFORNIA mail order company the weapon with which he had shot the
president - a bolt operated 2766 Mannlicher - Carcano 6.5 mm rifle
equipped with a cheap telescopic sight. The gun, made in 1940 in
Italy, was found by federal agents behind some boxes of books on the
sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository building.
The doctor apparently failed to read the chapter on Klein's Sporting
Goods in Chicago and their delivery of the rifle to LHO in March of
1963 and the federal agents would be amazed to find that it was them
that found the weapon.
It was the sixth floor and The doctor did have the correct building
in Dealey Plaza.
