What evidence can a nurse have which the pathologist does not?
The remains of the day on November 22nd, 1963 were those of the President of the United States. When nurses Diana Hamilton Bowron and Margaret M. Henchliffe, who had assisted the team of doctors in the emergency room, saw a back wound (a bullet entry wound was found several inches below the collar line and lodged deep in his shoulder) while undressing and cleaning the deceased.
This contradicts the Warren Commission finding that the wound was near the base of the neck. Secret Service agent Roy Kellerman verified that the dead President had a hole in his shoulder when he was lifted up in the morgue. Also, Kellerman added the throat had hole (an entrance wound at the Adam’s apple). Secret Service agent Glen A. Bennett saw that shot hit the President about four inches down from his right shoulder.
