possible. If Connally had turned ever so slightly to his right which he is said to have recalled to doing so in hospital. Photographic evidence also supports this. Due to the fact that Kennedy and Connally were of a similar size the single bullet theory that says Connally and Kennedy were hit by the same bullet could be true. There are of course facts that warp the single bullet theory such as the fact that the bullet that was found on a hospital stretcher was in perfect condition. Yet doctors have proven that the bullet had in fact gone through two major bones and torn out a great deal of muscle. Tests carried out on the bullet prove also that a bullet when fired through a sheep's spinal chord which is the same

thickness as a human's, it becomes out of shape and shows signs of severe impact. So the single bullet theory could be disproved in this way. However chemical tests carried out on the bullet found on the stretcher in Parkfield Hospital, proves that it did in fact come from the same cartridge shells found hidden in the Texas School Book Depository Building. his is the main question which is one everyone's lips, and there are several points which are worth considering when deciding whether or not there was a second gunman. Photographic evidence also points towards a second gunman as a picture taken at the time, after enhancement shows a figure hiding in the grassy knoll, not far from were the assassination took place. Witnesses have also testified that they saw a man hiding in the bushes, cigarette stubs have also been found as well as footprints. Others say that they saw gun smoke, however this is unlikely due to the fact that modern rifles don't produce smoke visible to the human eye.

In a statement later he admits that he should have asked the gentlemen for identification as they didn't look like secret service agents. Could these men have been comrades to a man standing in the grassy knoll. Dealey Plaza was unfortunately an echo valley, so the sound of gun shots would seem to come from different places. A recording made at Dallas Police headquarters, after analysis shows that the shots could have came from a variety of different places, but the recording seems to point towards the theory of three shots being fired.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
