Ballistic Evidence

It is startling to most people when I share with them the ballistic evidence in the assassination of President Kennedy. Many are unaware of the amount of fragments identified and that "officially" only two bullets struck home. (3 shots, 1 miss, 2 hits) Even allowing for CE 399 to have caused the injuries to both men as claimed there are just too many fragments from the remaining shot. What do you think? How Many Shots and Which Directions?

1. Pres. Kennedy, back (entry)
2. Pres. Kennedy, throat (entry or exit)
3. Pres. Kennedy, head (entry right temple)
4. Pres. Kennedy, head (exit right rear/side)
5. Pres. Kennedy, head, (possible neck/hairline entry)
6. Gov. Connally, back (entry)
7. Gov. Connally, chest (exit)
8. Gov. Connally, wrist (entry/exit)
9. Gov. Connally, thigh (entry/­no exit)
10. James Tague, cut on cheek

Bullets and fragments:

1. CE 567 (found driver's side front seat of limo)
2. CE 569 (found beside front seat of limo)
3. CE 840 (3 fragments found from underneath the left jump seat. \ One is now missing from NARA.)
4. Gov. Connally's wrist (Parkland, fragments were removed)
5. Gov. Connally's wrist (Parkland, fragments left in, shown on Xray)
6. CE 843 Pres. Kennedy's brain (Bethesda, 2 fragments removed | (receipt states missile) | Note on sizes
7. Pres. Kennedy's brain (Bethesda, fragments left in, shown on Xray)
8. Strike on Commerce Street curb left metal smear (Dealey Plaza, from missed shot, fragment or bullet)

Limousine Damage:
1. crack in left side windshield near rearview mirror
2. dent in back of rearview mirror
3. dent in metal trim over windshield
