I don’t care what book you read- they all have errors. Either spelling/typos, grammar, or factual errors, they exist, to a greater or less degree, in every book I have ever read, perhaps especially in non-fiction books. When you have a lengthy book dealing with so many facts, allegations and sources, inevitably something slips thru that is in error to some degree or another that either you or your editor miss, even in spite of multiple checks and so forth. There are also myriad unforeseen circumstances.

With that said, here is a list of the ones I have caught that should be corrected in future editions. If I find any more I will add them:

Page 6: inconsequential, but my 1995 COPA photo is dark. This was a grainy color video photo that became dark when printed in black and white;

Page 20, footnote 103: wish—should be which

Pages 20-21: THREE of the four never before published (the last one I have seen before)

Pages 24 and 344: While I did first hear of this Dr. Horsley from Matt Douthit, it actually originated from the 2013 book We We There (I don’t own the book, so Matt was MY source)

Page 26: the first photo of Winston Lawson from 2003 does not, in actual fact, depict him demonstrating the JFK head wound. The 2013 photo does, while the footnote depicts him stating that the back of Kennedy’s head was gone. I have the 2013 video on my You Tube channel, while I literally saw with my own eyes the Virginian-Pilot article mentioned in the footnote (and which is also referenced in my first and second books). Long story short: someone sent me the screen shot from Lawson’s lengthy 2003 Sixth Floor interview (as shown on C-SPAN) and, since I already knew of what he conveyed in 2010 and 2013, I assumed that the screen shot merely was yet another depiction of the former agent demonstrating the location of the JFK head wound. Researcher/author Will O’Halloran brought to my attention on 3/17/21 that, in actual fact, Lawson was merely scratching his head! Good news: the publisher has stated that he will eliminate the first 2003 image. I suppose the lesson to be learned: even if it looks legit, unless you yourself see or hear it, don’t make the mistake of assuming a still image conveys what you think it does.

Do you remember where you were? He does: With JFK – The Virginian-Pilot (

Secret Service agent Winston Lawson- too fast of a shooting sequence – YouTube

Page 32: Elmer (for Elmer Moore) [first name omitted, but added soon after]

Page 36: Evalea Glanges technically a medical student then, not a nurse

Page 132: relatively inconsequential (both dates soon after the assassination), but which is it: 11/27/63 or 12/2/63? When now-retired researcher Bill Adams forwarded me this information (text only; not the actual doc) in an e-mail back in 1999 (that is referenced in my first book, page 306), he included the detail that the calls were received on 11/27/63, based off what he described as “FBI report dated 11/27/63” and the text is shorter and appears to be a summary of this more detailed two-page document. It could very well be that the calls were received on 11/27/63 and the date of the report (or both reports) was 12/2/63. In any event, I received the date 11/27/63 from Adams [as a side note, I have been unable to find Bill Adams since I lost touch with him about 20 years ago]

Page 143: “…NORTH Vietnamese Army (NVA)…” Should be “…SOUTH Vietnamese Army (SVA)…”

[as Deb Galentine says: “That’s a very important distinction. The NVA fought like tigers. The SVA just were not that into it. Diem controlled the SVA, not the NVA. We were “training” the SVA, as much as we could without Diem’s commitment to taking over the war.”]

Page 153: the “ominous statement” part of the Robinson entry (the tail end) has been debunked by Matt Douthit. I got this not only from author Doug Horne of the ARRB (in his referenced book) but also from respected researcher and Lifton aide Wallace Milam (from his COPA 1994 appearance) and at least one other medical researcher (Dr. Gary Aguilar, I think), so I thought it could be trusted. It turns out “the time the people moved [etc.]” statement is just an innocent thought, although, in abbreviated form, it appears alarming. ***

Page 261: Reporter Robert Clark of ABC was also there on 11/22/63 (albeit in a car traveling through the area) and on 6/4/68…but he was an officially-assigned famous reporter, not a “regular” person, let alone a suspicious one with ties to the Mafia and David Ferrie!

Near bottom of page 312: whew should be when

Page 383: Marie Tippit died 3/2/21

Page 384: Bill Duncan died 3/14/21

In the “nitpicking” category-

Chapter 9 (pages 293-365/ 202 entries):

#37 Royce Skelton: While he seems to be describing TWO missed shots and a possible fourth shot, he does not state they came from the front; still valuable, though


***Courtesy Matt Douthit: One last thing regarding Tom Robinson… Doug Horne points out an interesting part from the transcript of Tom Robinson’s 1977 HSCA testimony: Purdy: You said that later, when you read some things about the assassination or the autopsy, you heard or read some things which struck you as incorrect. What would those things be? Robinson: The time the people moved (autopsy). The body was taken…and the body never came…lots of little things like that. Horne thus surmises that Robinson was “an unknown witness to a shell game with President Kennedy’s body.” (Inside the ARRB, p. 603). He then makes up his own version of the quote as: “The time the people [the Secret Service?] moved [the?] (autopsy). The body was taken…and the body never came…” Horne says this “could be evidence that he witnessed President Kennedy’s body removed from the morgue following initial examinations and/or manipulations, so that it could be reintroduced into the bronze Dallas casket.” (Inside the ARRB, p. 604) Horne THEN proceeds to write: “When I asked my ARRB colleague, Eric Scheinkopf, to locate the audiotape of the HSCA staff interview of Tom Robinson, the tape he brought back with that label on it had something entirely different recorded on it. At the time, this seemed like a minor annoyance, and I grumbled about the suspected incompetence of the personnel in charge of copying the audiotape recordings at Archives II. I now wonder, in light of this epiphany years later, whether the original recording of Tom Robinson’s interview still even exists. Some motivated JFK assassination researcher can perform a great service in clearing up this matter if he or she can find the actual Tom Robinson interview tape at the National Archives. This one sentence cries out for explanation and clarification.” (Inside the ARRB, p. 607) Well, it looks like I’m gonna have to be the one to solve and put an end to this. An easy quick search on the Internet immediately brought me Robinson’s taped testimony!

Here it is:

It is bizarre that Horne hasn’t heard this, or even if he has, he hasn’t corrected the record on this issue. A careful listen to the tape reveals the true words: Purdy: You said that later, when you read some things about the assassination or the autopsy, you heard some things or you read some things which struck you as incorrect. Robinson: Oh yeah. Purdy: What would those things be? Robinson: The time… Purdy: Time of what? Robinson: That the people moved… Purdy: To refer the autopsy? Robinson: Yes. You read that the body was taken to Gawler’s, and the body never came to Gawler’s. Lots of little things like that. SO YOU SEE, THERE IT IS. No, it’s nothing suspicious AT ALL. It’s an innocent thought. That’s all it is. Horne even said that Robinson was “complaining” when he said these words. Well, Horne obviously hasn’t listened to the tape. Robinson was as cool and calm as can be. You’re welcome

NOTE: I was also told by one reader that the newspaper articles are mostly illegible on the kindle version, as opposed to the clarity on the paperback version. This could be the model of the kindle, but it is duly noted.
