JFK: An Open Letter to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

JFK: An Open Letter to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

When I published “JFK: What we know now that we didn’t know then” (21 November 2011), I had become convinced by the discovery of the obfuscated face of a figure in the doorway area of a famous photograph taken by AP photographer James “Ike” Altgens (technically known as the “Altgens6″), together with having recently learned that Lee Oswald had told Will Fritz (the homicide detective who had interrogated him) that he had been “out with Bill Shelley in front” during the assassination, that this figure had to have been Lee himself. The only reason to have altered the photo would have been that someone had been there who should not have been there, where the obvious candidate for that role was the designated “patsy”.

We now believe that that person was actually Bill Shelley, no doubt erased on the presumption that, if it were discovered that Bill Shelley had been there, too many questions would have been raised about what Lee had said to Fritz. It would therefore be more efficient to simply delete his image from the photo and remove any reason for asking about it. Ralph Cinque read my article, however, and contacted me, explaining that, while he agreed with my conclusion (that Lee was in the doorway was right), my premises (about how we could prove that to be the case) were mistaken–that the crucial question was the clothing, not the facial images (which were ambiguous), but where a close study of the clothing and build of the figure in the doorway were those of Lee Oswald.
