Jim Towner took his wife, Pat, and daughter, Tina, to see JFK’s motorcade in Dallas that fateful November 22nd. Tina Towner used the family movie camera to capture footage of the motorcade while her father snapped some still photographs of the day’s events including one in the crucial moments after the assassination. The Towner #3 Photograph, as it has come to be known, captured a look at the grassy knoll and picket fence area at a time estimated to be 60-120 seconds after the assassination which confirms many details from witnesses.
If the reader clicks to enlarge the above photo, one can see that two (conspirator) cops have denied access to the grassy knoll area so that the shooters previously stationed there (Charles Rogers, Charles Harrelson and Roscoe White) could run to a stopped freight train to hide after the assassination. Rogers and Harrelson crawled under the stopped train and boarded a pre-determined car which was unlocked despite having the appearance of a locked and sealed car along with Chauncey Holt. Roscoe White then assumed the role of an honest policeman who had been watching the railroad area post-assassination and had not seen anything suspicious.
With access to the critical grassy knoll area denied, the crowd next turned and ran to the intersection of the triple overpass and picket fence area. Here a CIA man named Bernard Barker was encountered at the end of a storm drain at the end of the railroad triple overpass. Barker was confronted by Dallas PD’s Joe M. Smith, Seymour Weitzman and an onrushing crowd but was able to placate them with his (phony) Secret Service badge. Barker’s alleged shooting location would have corresponded with a throat wound to JFK.
The Towner# 3 Photo has often been reproduced in cropped formats in the past. If the viewer clicks on the photo for enlargement and looks at the 3 o’clock position of the photo, one can see what appears to be a man with something that resembles a rifle! This would have been the area where Charles Harrelson had fired from in accordance with the Nix film. Authors John R. Craig and Philip A. Rogers mentioned in The Man on the Grassy Knoll that the JFK assassination rifles were given to non-shooters for disposal purposes for the sake of muddying the water evidence-wise, and so that none of the shooters would literally be caught with smoking guns.
