JFK Kill Shot Came From Front Seat Of Limo


Witnesses make the case for the limousine driver (William Greer) shooting JFK.

I interviewed Fred Newcomb, who researched, along with co-author Perry Adams, a book entitled "Murder from Within," derived from original research done in Dallas, Texas in 1968 when the memories of witnesses were still fresh.

Newcomb felt his book made the case for the limousine driver shooting JFK so well that he sent copies of the book to the 1975 Congress and Senate because he felt he would be guilty of "obstruction of justice" if he did not do so.

These are the witnesses whose statement to Newcomb and sometimes the Warren commission included the words "in the car."

1. Mary Moorman - school teacher standing next to Jean Hill. She said she saw Greer shooting back but thought he was shooting back at the assassin Service Service agent was not). SOURCE: Warren Commission and taped interview by Fred Newcomb.

2. Jean Hill - Jean Hill saw what happened too, but when she tried to bring up the subject of a gun being fired in the car, Arlen Spector would change the subject or say "it's time for a cup of coffee."

3. Austin P. Miller - Texas Louisiana Freight Bureau, who stood on the railway overpass overlooking Elm Street was asked by Arlen Spector where the shots came from: His reply was "from right there in the car." Spector just went on to the next question, never asking Miller any specifics.

4. Clinton J. Hill. Jacqueline Kennedy's bodyguard reports in Vol. II, pp 138-139 of the Warren Commission Volumes: "I jumped from the car, realizing that something was wrong, and ran to the presidential limousine. Just as I reached it, there was another sound. I think I described it in my statement as though someone was shooting a revolver into a hard object...it seemed to have some type of echo."

5. Hugh Betzner - Had picture published in Life magazine and was standing right next to the drivers side of the motorcade: He saw a gun in the hand of one of the secret service agents and heard a sound "like firecrackers going off in the car.

6. Senator Ralph Yarborough - 3rd car back "Smelled gunpowder in the car." He was challenged by Newcomb on the phone and he then said "I must have smelled it coming down from the book depository"

It is reasonable to assume that if a gun were fired in the limousine, then there would be the smell of gunsmoke.

There was and Mr. Newcomb located 6 "nose witnesses":

1.Senator Ralph Yarborough
2. Patrolman Joe W. Smith
3. Congressman Ray Roberts
4. Thomas C. Clifford
5. Elizabeth Cabell, wife of Dallas Mayor.
6. Robert W. Jackson
