JFK's Coffin Moved to University Hospital for New Autopsy
JFK to be Exhumed for New Autopsy
Washington DC. April 1, 2017. (GPNS - Green Planet News Service) The body of slain president John F. Kennedy was exhumed so a new modern forensic autopsy can be performed using the latest scientific procedures including 3D x-rays, MRI and DNA testing of bullet fragments that could resolve outstanding issues like the single-bullet theory.
Carolyn Kennedy reportedly agreed to the procedure even though a federal grand jury officer familiar with their secret proceedings said, "we don't need the permission of the victim's family if the death is suspicious and this was a clear cut murder."
The original autopsy by Navy officers at Bethesda was seriously botched, and only determined the cause of death - gunshot to the head.
The new forensic autopsy will be performed at an independent non-military academic institute in Washington, and use non-invasive three dimensional photos and x-rays, MRIs, and the latest equipment that can trace the back wound through the body without physically probing it or altering the body in any way.
While the original photos and X-rays are controversial, some not recognized by the persons who took them, this forensic autopsy will create new evidence that can be used in a court of law, principally by the sitting federal grand jury that is reportedly investigating crimes related to the assassination including obstruction of justice, destruction of evidence, perjury, and theft of documents and records from the Archives.
Although the federal grand jury proceedings are secret, some of the witnesses who have testified have talked to reporters afterwards and confirmed the prosecuting attorneys are focusing on former Central Intelligence Agency officers who are now retired.
The investigation began with an inquiry into the theft of official documents from the JFK Collection at the National Archives and Records Administration Archives II facility at College Park, Maryland, where a number of significant records were missing from their folders, and former CIA personnel are suspected in their theft.
But the investigation quickly expanded to the issues of perjury and tampering with the medical evidence in the case that led the grand jury to the order a new forensic autopsy.
