    Lee H Oswald did not kill JFK. I spend 8 years analyzing all films and images that was taken on Nov.22,1963 and I found new evidence that was over looked.
    I have done a report on my findings and in this report I show real images of the gunmen on the grassy knoll they were in shelter number 3 right behind Mr.Zapruder. These images shows both gunmen with rifles and aiming their rifles and firing their rifles from shelter number 3.
    There were 7 gunmen there that day and they fired 11 shots that day.
    JFk was shot 3 times and Gov.Connally was shot two times.
    To see this new evidence here is my site on my report.
