JFK's Exhumation

Postby Brian White » Wed Jul 25, 2007 10:00 pm

I'm a new member to this forum and this is my first post. Congratulations to Wim Dankbaar for the best, most authoritative website on the assassination! "Files on JFK" is a fascinating book!
Just a little tidbit of information to throw out there- I don't know how many knew this already, but JFK (or his casket) was exhumed, in March of 1967, while Robert Kennedy was still alive.Ostensibly, this was done to move the casket about 20 feet away, to it's "permanent gravesite".All 3 newsmagazines reported on it. One of them said it was done "unannounced in advance and carried out in conditions of military secrecy". The thing that struck me the most about this is that this is the exact time frame that James Files remembers hearing Shackley say that
JFK was buried at sea. Could JFK have actually been buried in November
'63, then exhumed in March '67 on Robert Kennedy's orders for a second
autopsy and reburied at sea? Just a little speculation on my part.
The fact remains that something (an empty casket?) was exhumed in March,1967.

Hello again Brian ,

JFK Buried at sea or cremated

Postby William Robertson » Thu Jul 26, 2007 9:59 am

Brian,

It is a fair bet that the grave at Arlington is empty. It is rumoured from reasonable sources that JFK was cremated shortly after the original autopsy; other people have stated that his body was dumped at sea along with the allegedly damaged casket that he was brought back from Dallas in.

Whatever the truth about the method of disposing of his body it seems a reasonable bet that the conspirators would not leave any evidence lying around in the ground.

In my view that is why anyone who starts legal proceedings to have JFK exhumed tends to meet a sticky end.

Alternatively, as with the Oswald exhumation, it could be found that water had 'accidentally' entered the casket. It reduced Oswald's body to an unrecognisable grey sludge within 3 years of his burial. His face was totally wrecked although his teeth could still be seen.

Ya, I remember Jackie & Bobby being showed the body and neither of them thought it was Jack. I saw an article that suggested that it was Tippit in kennedy's grave. and that it was him in the autopsy pictures and his xrays. i'll try and find the link and post it here.

Tippit's boy ued for JFK autopsy photos

Postby William Robertson » Sat Aug 04, 2007 4:27 pm

I think that it was Robert Morningstar who suggested that JD Tippit's body and face had been used to create the JFK autopsy photos and he developed some theories on the JFK-Research website I think. There are some links on this website somewhere.

I can believe that. JFK's body has a unremarkable resemblence to Tippit's. I also think that his body was used as a double. Remeber there two Kennedy'd according to hospital reports, So I believe it is plausible.

Please let's not waste energy on the theory that Tippit was killed to switch JFK's body for his.

Yes, Wim, that all sounds a
little far-fetched to me. :shock: I
was just trying to make the point
that there indeed was an exhumation
in 1967, at which time a second autopsy
could have been done. James Files says
it was late '66 or early '67 when Shackley
was talking about a sea burial-could he have
been referring to something that had only
recently taken place? (the exhumation was
in March '67, on a rather flimsy pretext, I
thought). Maybe Bobby wanted a real autopsy,
instead of the botched one done at Bethesda?

Here is a link to an Arlington site that gives some basics of JFK's gravesite, and its few changes.

Sometimes we get too wrapped up in our passions of those events in Dallas and forget the human aspects of the man.

Thank you for sharing this site with us Neil :D ...I would like to add a point of trivia that I can recollect...JFK and Jackies' unborn daughter was named 'Arabella.' if I am not mistaken.... :) :R Croxford came up with an amazing site that looked like a calender of events...ask him to retrieve it if you will..this site is starting to make me spin..
