The Application of Forensic Principles for the Analysis of the Autopsy Skull X-Rays of President Kennedy and a Review of the Brain Photographs

Written by

The complete visual essay prepared by expert witness Michael Z. Chesser, M.D., for the mock trial of Lee Harvey Oswald held at the South Texas College of Law in Houston, November 16 - 17, 2017.

We are pleased to be able to feature here in its entirety a PowerPoint presentation on the JFK X-rays and brain photographs which for reasons of time was not fully reviewed by the jury during the mock trial.

Michael Chesser, M.D., is board certified in neurology and clinical neurophysiology. He has over 25 years of experience in clinical practice and is a former associate professor of neurology at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. Chesser was granted permission by Sen. Paul Kirk, the Kennedy family representative for the Deed of Gift, to view the JFK autopsy cranial x-rays and autopsy photographs.

Note:  this presentation is larger than usual so it may take a bit longer to load.

Michael Chesser, M.D. is a board certified neurologist who has had a longstanding interest in the assassination of President Kennedy. When he attended the AARC meeting in Bethesda in 2014 he was encouraged to request permission to view the autopsy materials at the Archives. He was approved to view the autopsy materials, and he initially viewed the original autopsy cranial x-rays and the computer enhanced x-ray films prepared for the HSCA. Subsequently he viewed the autopsy photographs and most recently viewed the digital autopsy images which were prepared for the ARRB by Kodak.
