Some features of the AP: (left)
d An obvious crack in the right orbital rim., p ,j h, Cracks supposedly radiating from the
'cowlick' entry. (Thought the crack at h in nowhere to be seen on the lateral...it should be there, from
A to D.(see below)..suggesting it is probably behind the right socket.) At f there is a curious
oblong density, which on very close examination is found to have a suture running vertically down it's centre....which
means it's loose bone, from elsewhere on the skull. c should represent the 'entry' at the top back...but
since it's upper border is in fact the right orbital rim, the question is in doubt.
Some Features of the Lateral. (right)
The area G is the posterior half of the 3.5 by 1.75 inch anterior flap seen on the 'back of the head'
pictures. The 'point' of the flap very probably lost it's inner 'table at Z313 ..(the skull is made of an outer
table, a more hollow interior, and an inner table.) Consequently the anterior part is less radio-opaque, and harder
to spot...it gets 'lost' amongst the metallic fragments to the right & below P. Someof this metal may
on fact be on the flap itself. The 'void' at and above M is the subject of some controversy.
A to B is a bone fragment that is loose from the head and actually
a little above the natural contour of the head, as can be seen by comparing it to a lateral taken while JFK was
alive. Since this is also the bone which 'contains' the entry
wound (as defined by the Clark Panel & the HSCA) , this leads to the interesting conclusion that if
the entry is where it's supposed to be, it's removable from the head. Which may help explain how the pathologists
at the autopsy came to lose it....
