Retracing The Fatal Shot: The Other Grassy Knoll--The Experts TalkBlood Spatter at JFK Lancer 2016 November In Dallas

Viewing the "grassy knoll" from the other grassy knoll on the other side of Dealey Plaza

Blood Spatter expert, Sherry Fiester believes the fatal shot came from this area, this is the other grassy knoll on the other side of the plaza

Attending the JFK Lancer November in Dallas Conference 2016 offered many opportunities.  

One of the best things about the symposium was the tour of Dealey Plaza on Sunday and we had several experts to show us around and offer their opinion of the events that took place on the fateful day in November of 1963.

As Chris Gallop took us around we went from the famous picket fence area of the grassy knoll across the railroad bridge where the three tramps were found and circled all the way over to the other grassy knoll completely on the other side of Dealey Plaza.

Standing on the railroad bridge was really exciting.  After seeing the bridge and hearing about it in so many shows I could not believe that I was actually standing in that place.

Chris told us that criminologist and blood spatter expert Sherry Fiester believes that the fatal shot came from this area in the picture above.  He said he really cannot go against Sherry's philosophy as she proved her case so well in her book "Enemy Of The Truth."

Sherry Fiester worked for many years as a criminal investigator, blood spatter and the science of murder was her speciality.

Being a fan of Sherry Fiester's it is easy to enjoy her conversation as she often guests on radio shows discussing the murder and the crime scene investigation of JFK.

Thanks, Chris Gallop, for taking time to show us around Dealey Plaza and sharing your expert knowledge with our group.

The Lancer Conference was really well worth the trip.

Gary Shaw Honored at 2016 JFK Lancer November In Dallas

Thanks, Gary, for all of your hard work.

What an honor and a pleasure to be able to hear famed JFK Assassination Researcher, J. Gary Shaw, speak at this years JFK Lancer November in Dallas Conference.

Many folks have followed Gary Shaw for decades as he took the time to explain to the American public what really happened on November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas.

The thing I have always loved about Gary is his ability to make the sometimes tedious facts into a story that I can understand.  It does not take long to read the comments of many of the others who have said the same thing.

I will never forget one person who said Gary Shaw is the one who got me interested in the whole JFK mystery decades ago.  

He said in his very informative talk on Saturday evening at the conference when he accepted his award that he was not only interested in the assassination and the discrepancy with the lone gunman theory of the Warren Commission but that he had also lived the news as a young man in Dallas.

Gary said it was not uncommon for him and his friends and their wives to go out "honky-tonkin'."

They would all get dressed up and visit the night clubs in Dallas for dinner and a show.  This would often include the Carousel Club of Jack Ruby and that Jack did not mind sitting down for a chat at the table.

Gary Shaw said he still has files of folks that he interviewed that were either witnesses to the murder of directly involved who have passed away.  

Gary took the time to write book and interview individuals so that all may have a better idea of what actually happened.

I have been following Gary Shaw for an awfully long time now and it was so lucky to hear him speak in person.

Just wanted to say thank you Gary for all of your hard work and for this time well spent.  

Many of us out there, just the regular people without a voice, value your efforts and the information you have provided for us.

Well done, Gary.

We look forward to what you have to say in the future as your research and interesting conversation continues.
