The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza presented an engaging program featuring renowned forensic pathologist, consultant and author Dr. Cyril H. Wecht. In this two-part presentation, Museum Curator Stephen Fagin led Dr. Wecht in conversation on his remarkable career and longtime interest in the assassination. Wecht then delivered a multimedia lecture on key areas of the Warren Commission’s 1964 investigation, including President Kennedy’s autopsy and the controversial single bullet theory.
Dr. Wecht began researching the Kennedy assassination when he was invited to speak before the 1965 meeting of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences. More than half a century later, Wecht continues to lecture and give media interviews on the assassination. As a distinguished elder statesman of the assassination research community and current chairman of the Citizens Against Political Assassinations organization, Wecht remains an outspoken critic of the Warren Commission’s conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.
