Because the assassination of Kennedy was public opinion and from my view, it is an ethical issue, it is time for me to contribute with this scientific and medico-legal opinion (because my age at the assassination was 7 years old). According to the available information I found, nothing about the murder has been as controversial as the nature of Kennedy’s Injuries. Kennedy’s wounds have been a matter of continuing controversy in regard to their numbers, their directions, their nature and type (either entrance or exit). In most reports, all have mentioned that the injuries of Kennedy as follows: Kennedy’s head exploded, Kennedy died as a result of two gunshot wounds, Kennedy has a wound in his back and other in his neck (anterior side). In many opinions, the forensic pathologists have written about Kennedy’s assassination, on 22 Nov. 1963. These opinions in regard to Kennedy’s autopsy & report, unfortunately, were confused, contradictory, and often have a lot of professional (malpractice) and practical mistakes.
