Can someone please remind us how it was that the polaroid acquired an egregious fingerprint? If it happened whilst it was in the 'safekeeping' of the Feds, that would be an odd one. A polaroid once developed is dry. Who would handle a polaroid with WET hands therefore? Government photo experts? Stretching it a bit, isn't it?

From JFK Assassination Photographs Gallery (link at top of Forum page):



So-called "Zippo" version, taken before the fingerprint developed. This photo of the Moorman original was taken with a low-res box camera with a Zippo lighter lighter on the right.

Just how DID important evidence in the murder get destroyed, lost or damaged anyhow? Correct me if I'm wrong here but isn't evidence kind of important to not screw up when you're a cop and not just a guy in the street who's picked something up off the ground (like, say a stray bullet)? Even more so when it's the Prez who just got iced. Cops gotta be at their best for THIS case, right? No doubt someone will inform me that the JFK murder investigation produced as many such, let's call them, 'anomalies', as any other similar murder case. Which would be patently absurd since the JFK case is overflowing with them. Which is odd for such an open-and-shut case, right kids?

Pretty awful copies of Moorman for a Kennedy assassination forum.

Try using the Forum Linked Gallery, It's a greatly underused resource.
