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

Disappointing and Incomplete
21 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

As others here have pointed out; at first it looks as if the 'magic bullet theory' could actually be true only to be disproved minutes later by the 'skull bullet'.

But more importantly; They touch upon the subject 'grassy knoll', but did not go into the sniper skills Oswald needed to be able to pull off such a feat of three shots in a few seconds from the 6th floor of the TSBD. Remember, he was the one who, a few months earlier in April '63, tried to assassinate General Walker (Warren report p. 183). (Dutch investigative journalist Karl Hammer mentioned this somewhere) During that attempt he had all the time in the world to aim and fire from across the garden at a person sitting behind a desk in the study room, but missed. Now, some six months later, he is able to pull off an amazing high skilled trick on a moving object. And he did it standing up (instead of sitting or laying as a pro sniper would, using the window sill for resting his riffle), as eyewitness Mr. BRENNAN told the Warren Commission. "Well, as it appeared to me he was standing up and resting against the left window sill, with gun shouldered to his right shoulder, holding the gun with his left hand and taking positive aim and fired his last shot." Perhaps ex-CIA Bob Baer will finally pick up on this in his TV-series "Tracking Oswald" (but I doubt it).
