Storyline

From PBS and NOVA: Cold Case JFK. For decades, the assassination of John F. Kennedy has fueled dark rumors of conspiracies and mishandled evidence. Now, fifty years later, NOVA asks: Could modern investigators do better? We'll see how state-of-the art forensic tools would be applied to the investigation were it to happen today. At the same time, NOVA takes a critical look at contemporary cases, like the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, to reveal how charges of evidence mishandling and human error can mar even scientifically sophisticated detective work. Will forensics ever be truly foolproof, or does modern technology just give a scientific sheen to a practice that will always be more art than science? Written by Anonymous

The Most Famous Cold Case That Never Went Cold
22 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a complete investigation from square one of the assassination of JFK using every piece of evidence available from that dreadful day. They analyzed the gun, the bullets and the crime scene.

The Kennedy assassination is an extremely complicated case that has required decades of scientific development to solve. None of the conspiracy theories take into account shooting reconstruction or science. That's all based on speculation and imagination.

These NOVA scientists created a audio map of Dealey Plaza using laser technology. A reproduction of the two shots that hit President Kennedy and the Governor showed the damage that was done to the two men. The bullet trajectories lined up perfectly from the Texas School Book Depository window where Oswald built his sniper's nest. Conclusion? Oswald acted alone.

This documentary investigation also takes into account all the anomalies in the physical evidence. They're all explained.

As far as the conspiracy theories, they're up to you. you.
