Veteran police detective Colin McLaren spent four years on the forensic cold-case investigation of JFK's assassination. What he had, and other investigators did not, was modern technology and access to all the evidence, facts and eyewitness testimony. He claims to have solved a crime that is every bit as shocking and incredible today as it was when it happened 50 years ago. A far cry from the fanciful conspiracy theories, McLaren believes he has found the smoking gun that killed JFK.

I was four when Kennedy was assassinated. I found this DVD fascinating: the ballistics, theory, and cover up all point to an accidental shooting. It actually makes sense and solved the mystery for ME.

An interesting theory of "who shot JFK". We'll never really know, but I think this was fairly well-done and logical.

Claims Secret Service agent in trailing car fired shot that destroyed JFK's head. Secret Service then stole corpse from Dallas, disrupted the autopsy, confiscated and destroyed evidence including JFK's brain, scores of autopsy photos, and FBI autopsy notes. Xrays were falsified, and testimony that they were was disregarded. Secret Service threatened certain witnesses to silence for decades, and destroyed records when sought by a review board under President Clinton. [These charges of government corruption are well-put; but head-shot came from front; see eg JFK HAS BEEN SHOT by Parkland doctor Charles A. Crenshaw.]

A very different take on the JFK assassination presents a different theory based on the work of two different men, with an emphasis on ballistics. Fascinating and troubling at the same time, it doesn't go for the grand Oliver Stone style conspiracy theory that half the country was in on it- instead it looks at the case as both a shooting and a terrible mistake, and the ensuing coverup that went far over the line.

Good, but not much that I haven't heard or seen before.
