About the Book
After fifty years as a forensic pathologist, Dr. Cyril Wecht has one case that still keeps him up at night. Since the day that President John F. Kennedy was murdered in Dallas, Dr. Wecht has earned his reputation as one of the foremost skeptics of the U.S. government’s official answer to the death of the 35th president. Dr. Wecht firmly believes that it was not Lee Harvey Oswald who was responsible for the president’s death, but rogue elements without our own government.
Co-authored by true crime writer Dawna Kaufmann, this book rehashes Dr. Wecht’s decades-long experience with the JFK case in one highly detailed and comprehensive volume. Through the unique perspective of a career coroner, it approaches the—importantly, the autopsy—with an expertly discerning eye, identifying the details (and often lack thereof) which Dr. Wecht finds particularly dubious. The authors also discuss the murder of Lee Harvey Oswald, the findings of the Warren Commission, Jack Ruby and the shocking revelations about the assassination made in the years since.
