Abstract: The assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy JFK traumatized thenation. In this paper we show that evidence used to rule out a second assassinis fundamentally flawed. This paper discusses new compositional analyses ofbullets reportedly to have been derived from the same batch as those used inthe assassination. The new analyses show that the bullet fragments involved inthe assassination are not nearly as rare as previously reported. In particular,the new test results are compared to key bullet composition testimony presentedbefore the House Select Committee on Assassinations HSCA. Matches of bulletswithin the same box of bullets are shown to be much more likely than indicatedin the House Select Committee on Assassinations- testimony. Additionally, weshow that one of the ten test bullets is considered a match to one or moreassassination fragments. This finding means that the bullet fragments from theassassination that match could have come from three or more separate bullets.Finally, this paper presents a case for reanalyzing the assassination bulletfragments and conducting the necessary supporting scientific studies. Theseanalyses will shed light on whether the five bullet fragments constitute threeor more separate bullets. If the assassination fragments are derived from threeor more separate bullets, then a second assassin is likely, as the additionalbullet would not easily be attributable to the main suspect, Mr. Oswald, underwidely accepted shooting scenarios see Posner 1993, Case Closed, Bantam, NewYork.
