YSU panel discusses the assassination of President John F. Kennedy

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Youngstown State University assembled a panel of experts to take a detailed look at the assassination of John F. Kennedy on the 50th year anniversary of his death.

The panel included John Judge, author of "Judge for Yourself," who said one incentive to murder Kennedy was because the President planned on pulling troops out of Vietnam and the Joint Chiefs of Staff did not want that to happen.

Other speakers included Steve Jones, founder of Citizens for the Truth About the Kennedy Assassination, and forensic expert Dr. Cyril Wecht who says more than 80 percent of people polled don't believe the single bullet theory.

"It requires, the single bullet theory, one bullet producing seven wounds in two men and moving vertically and horizontally like a roller coaster ride at an amusement park. Emerging with only one and a half percent weight loss despite having left pieces of itself in four anatomic locations of the President and John Connelly," Dr. Wecht said.

"Lee Harvey Oswald, the evidence clearly shows, was not actually in the sixth floor window at the time President Kennedy was assassinated," Jones said.

Following the guest speakers, 21 WFMJ's Glenn Stevens shared how the assassination of President Kennedy changed media coverage.
