Forensic pathologist Cyril Wecht, 85% of Americans still dispute JFK killing report

Noted forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht said 85 percent of 2,200 Americans recently polled don’t believe the Warren Commission’s report on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy ... and neither does he.

Nationally known because of his involvement in numerous high-profile assassination cases — JFK; the former president’s brother, Robert Kennedy, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Dr. Wecht, also an attorney, strongly disagrees that there was only one shooter in each of those murders.

The forensic evidence points to both more than one shooter and to a government cover-up of some of the facts, said Wecht, speaking Tuesday to a rapt audience in Youngstown State University’s Beeghly Center as part of the YSU Alumni Lecture Series.

He said flat out that there were flaws in the handling and investigation of the assassination of President Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963.

At first, he said, it was believed the president was shot just once in the head as he rode in a motorcade through Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas.

But later, a second bullet was found in the Dallas hospital where JFK was taken; his body was whisked away against the wishes of the local coroner, and the president’s brain was missing. It was never examined and it has never been found, Wecht said.
