Mary Moorman was a 31 year old Dallas resident who went to see the JFK motorcade with her friend Jean Hill on November 22, 1963.  Moorman snapped a Polaroid photograph of the JFK limousine as the assassins’ bullets hit JFK.  Her photograph shows a wounded JFK as well as some of the grassy knoll area in the background.  Moorman and Hill spoke of being harassed by a newspaperman named James Featherstone immediately after the assassination.  The FBI took Moorman’s Polaroids of the JFK motorcade and returned them several weeks later ‘mutilated,’ including a thumbprint which may have been strategically placed to cover-up the engaged red brake-lights of the JFK limo during the shots.  In the face of this pressure, Mary Moorman decided to go along with the likes of Arlen Specter and the Warren Commission for her own safety, and has said very little over the years.  She was excused from testifying to the Warren Commission for an ankle injury of all things.

Over the years, as science and photographic technology have improved, the Moorman photo has been enlarged in the search for critical new details.  In the early 1980’s, researchers Gary Mack and Jack White came to the conclusion that the Moorman photo revealed the images of several figures on the Grassy Knoll.  White flew to MIT where the Moorman photo was subjected to computer enhancement which affirmed their theory.  According to author Jim Marrs in Crossfire, ‘they were told without question that the photo showed a man firing a rifle.  The next day however the chairman of the MIT department involved suddenly gave all materials back to them, and with no explanation, told them the school would no longer participate in any study of the photo.’

Figures of a man in a police uniform dubbed, ‘Badge man’ with a ‘Railroad man’ alongside him can be seen behind the picket fence area with the figure of a soldier in summer uniform some distance in front of them.  This blogger asserts that these 3 individuals were Gordon Arnold , Charles Rogers as ‘Badge man’ and perhaps James Files as the ‘Railroad man’ (spotter/gun disposer).  Roscoe White and JD Tippit were behind the fence as well, but somewhat further down to Rogers and Files’ right side.  Evidently, the conspirators needed as many shooting angles as possible to kill JFK without hitting the First Lady with the exiting bullets.  (Re: James Files, there was a 2nd phony ‘Railroad man’ spotted by witness Ed Hoffman, disposing of a rifle which had been fired at JFK by a phony Secret Service man(Bernard Barker) wearing a suit where the picket fence met the triple underpass.  James Files could have been either of these ‘Railroad men’ conspirators…)

Gordon Arnold was the military man.  He was not an actual conspirator in the assassination despite being caught in the crossfire.  He spoke of diving for cover before being accosted by 2 cops after the shooting was over.  One of the cops kicked Arnold and took his camera film, which corroborates Roscoe White’s account of leaping over the fence and kicking a military man before taking his film and running towards the railroad parking lot.  Mr. Arnold’s presence on the Grassy Knoll in uniform that day was confirmed by motorcade passenger Ralph Yarborough who noted Mr. Arnold’s military inspired duck and cover technique as bullets flew over his position.

Polaroid photos like Ms. Moorman’s are/were harder to forge and alter than other films taken that day because of their instantaneous development.  It is for this reason that the Moorman photo serves as a Rosetta Stone which has allowed researchers to determine whether the Zapruder, Nix and Muchmore films depict altered frames.   Moorman’s photograph contradicts the Zapruder Film and shows that we have been seeing altered copies of that film.  Mary Moorman’s photographic field of view shows her to be in one place while the Zapruder film has her in another place several feet away.  She would literally have to be in 2 places at the same time for this to be!

Astute researchers have also pointed out the fact that the Zapruder Film shows Ms. Moorman wearing white shoes while other films of the day’s events show her in dark shoes!  Additionally, the Zapruder Film shows Mary Moorman on the grass of the plaza, while she recalled stepping out into the street, itself.  A man in the back of a pick-up truck in the stopped traffic on the opposite side of the road from JFK’s limo has also been edited out of copies of Zapruder Film, as well.  Finally, further contradicting the authenticity of the Zapruder Film are the accounts of 59 separate witnesses who recalled that the limo stopped or came to a near stop (so that the shooters could finish off JFK).  These facts establish that the Zapruder Film cannot be used to accurately time or assess the assassination since it was clearly altered.

The photonic imaging research of former US Steel engineer, Tom Wilson, also uncovered evidence that reprints of the Moorman photo may have been altered to conceal a right rear baseball sized exit wound on JFK’s head.  Below is a photo of Wilson’s photo analysis of JFK’s head from the Moorman photo:

The Zapruder Film

This video shows JFK’s head being blown off by a shot from the right front(grassy knoll/picket fence area).  It also shows that the limo driver did not shoot JFK as some disinformation artists like William Cooper have claimed. The limo did slow down enough so that the shooters could get good shots at JFK though…

Some have speculated that Abraham Zapruder was tipped off that something big was going to happen that day in Dallas and that he should be there to record the events for the sake of posterity.  Other photos and film from the JFK assassination show that Zapruder could not have been more than 20-50 feet from the shooters, himself and was literally in their midst! It would have been impossible for him not to have seen any of the shooters or smelled the gunpowder from their weapons behind the adjacent picket fence/grassy knoll from his vantage point before, during or after the shooting.

However:

‘It now appears that the Zapruder film of the Kennedy Assassination in the National Archives is likely an altered film-not an out of camera original, as most people assumed for well over 30 years.  It also appears that the alteration occurred at a classified CIA laboratory run for the agency by Kodak in Rochester, New York, at Kodak’s main industrial plant and headquarters.’ – Douglas P. Horne, Former Chief Analyst for Military Records, Assassination Records Review Board, 2009

Nowadays, many researchers believe that even the Zapruder Film, once thought to have been the Rosetta Stone of the JFK assassination, has been altered from its original form. They assert that the film was tampered with to obscure the true timing of the event, JFK’s true headwound and flying brain debris(from a baseball sized exit wound on the back right portion of his head), and the near or complete stoppage of the presidential limo so that the shooters could finish off JFK.

Witness Mary Moorman was actually in two separate places at once (which were several feet apart) when researchers tried to re-create her coordinates using her Polaroid photo and the Zapruder Film for comparison, further implying that one of the films has, indeed, been altered.  Additionally, 59 separate witnesses including several Dallas police officers, reported a stoppage or near stoppage of the Presidential limo, which the Zapruder Film does not show!   Still others have speculated that the Zapruder film was further altered to edit out the presence of a gunman(Johnny Roselli) and a puff of smoke coming from that gunman’s weapon from the storm drain on Elm Street near the grassy knoll.

the clip below examines some of the anomalies in the Zapruder film:
