Phillip Willis took a series of 12 photos of Dealey Plaza, where Kennedy was shot, in the minutes before and after the assassination.
Mr. Willis' photos and testimony before the Commission appear in the report. He was not questioned about the eighth photo,
a shot of the Book Depository entrance shortly after the shooting. As Willis later pointed out, one of the men in the photo
"looks so much like (Jack Ruby), it's pitiful". F.B.I. agents questioning Willis agreed with him that the man bore
a powerful resemblance to Ruby. When Willis mentioned this to the Commission, no interest was shown. When the photo was published
in the Warren Report, a considerable part of the Ruby look-alikes face had been cropped away.
While the President's autopsy was underway at Bethesda Naval Hospital, federal agents removed the X-rays of the body from
custody of the examining doctors. Though the X-rays undoubtedly would have been valuable in determining trajectories of the
bullets hitting the President, and also the shooter's location, they are neither published or alluded to in the Warren Report.
Thoughtfully, the Commission did provide in its report a dental chart made for Jack Ruby's mother 25 years before the assassination,
as well as a detailed physical analysis of three of Oswald's pubic hairs
There are hundreds more oversights like those above contained in the Warren Report. The job of catching them has been
done well by authors Mark Lane, Jim Garrison and others. The sheer volume of strange coincidences and connections has led
some to suggest their own answers to questions posed by the Kennedy case. For every powerful group or figure with something
to gain from Kennedy's death, there is a theorist ready to explain how that group arranged the murder. Of course, some of
the explanations hold up better than others. The following are theories that have stood the test of time to become the staples
of Kennedy assassination lore.
