Assassination Expert Cyril Wecht Passes Away at 93, Challenging JFK Lone Shooter Theory

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania— A prominent pathologist and attorney known for his controversial theory on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy has passed away at the age of 93, as announced by the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts. Dr. Cyril Wecht gained national attention for his belief that more than one shooter was involved in Kennedy’s death.

Wecht, who first attracted public interest in 1964 while serving as an assistant district attorney in Allegheny, Pennsylvania, and as a pathologist in Pittsburgh, strongly disagreed with the conclusion of the Warren Commission. The commission had stated that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in killing President Kennedy, a claim that Wecht dismissed as “absolute nonsense.”

Famously questioning the notion of a single “magic” bullet causing Kennedy’s death and Governor Connally’s injuries, Wecht maintained that there were likely two shooters involved in the tragic event. Wecht was a vocal critic of the Warren Commission’s findings and was one of the first civilians to examine the physical evidence related to Kennedy’s assassination. His examination led to the discovery that President Kennedy’s brain had never been properly studied, raising questions about the accuracy of the original investigation.

Throughout his career, Wecht authored numerous books and provided consulting services on a variety of high-profile deaths, including those of Elvis Presley, JonBenet Ramsey, Anna Nicole Smith, and Michael Jackson. His controversial views and thorough examination of forensic evidence made him a prominent figure in the field of forensic pathology.

Despite facing skepticism and criticism for his theories, Wecht remained steadfast in his belief that the Kennedy assassination involved multiple perpetrators. His contributions to the field of forensic science and his willingness to challenge official narratives have left a lasting impact on the study of historical events and criminal investigations. Dr. Cyril Wecht’s legacy as a pioneering pathologist and advocate for truth in forensic analysis will be remembered by those in the legal and scientific communities.
