Here is a photo illustration showing two different photos aligned and combined. It will give you an idea of what that area of the head looked like with the skin down and then reflected. PS - if you're on a slow connection, it may take a while to load:



If that is an exit wound....then the entry would of course be on the front of the head, which is what doctors at Parkland said about the throat wound.   BUT......  The throat wound was only about the size of a 22 caliber bullet ( less than 1/4 inch)   If this is an exit wound then it was probably not made by the same caliber bullet that caused the throat wound.  ie   There were two guns being fired from the front of the Limo.

The graphic shows a potential exit (or entry) wound in the skull but where is the matching wound in the scalp?

The NORMAL procedure in an autopsy is to slice across the top of the scalp from ear to ear
then retract the front portion of the scalp over the face, and the back portion of scalp back over the head towards the neck.

That is NOt what your image shows ?

As is often the case in this area of research - the closer you look the weirder it gets.

I'm having trouble reconciling the following images:



In this image, at the point where the bottom of the bone flap meets the head, there seems to be a distinct line running across the scalp above which it seems possible to look into JFK's head. It is a very distinct line.
Then there is this image:



It seems to show a very similar view of JFK's head but the distinct line in the scalp is gone. The gloved hand appears to be pulling at the scalp but this portion of scalp is missing in the first pic.
Then there is this graphic:



Here we see a mass of scalp hanging down towards the back of JFK's head but this mass of scalp is missing in the first pic. In the second pic it makes sense that the gloved hand is pulling this mass of scalp forward but why is it completely missing from the first pic?

ARRB Testimony of Dr. J. Thornton Boswell, 26 Feb. 1996


Q. So you're saying that on the fourth view, which are the photographs that are in your hand right now, the scalp has been pulled back and folded back over the top of the head in a way different from the way that they appeared in the third view, the superior view of the head?

A. Yes.

Q. Is that fair?

A. In the previous one, it was permitted just to drop. In this one, it's pulled forward up over the forehead, toward the forehead.

Q. Who, if you recall, pulled up the scalp for the photograph to be taken?

A. There are about three of us involved here, because there are two right hands on that centimeter scale. I think that I probably was pulling the scalp up.


Q. Okay. Could we turn to the sixth view, which is described as "wound of entrance in right posterior occipital region"? That corresponds to black and white photos Nos. 15 and 16, and color photos Nos. 42 and 43. Do these photographs appear to you, Dr. Boswell, to be accurate representations of photographs taken during the autopsy of President Kennedy?

A. Yes.

Q. In that photograph, is the scalp of President Kennedy being pulled forward?

A. Yes.

Q. For what purpose was it being pulled forward?

A. In order to take the photograph, because if it wasn't pulled forward, this would just--the scalp would come down and cover the wound of entrance here. And this was necessary to demonstrate the wound here.

It's not really addressing the issue. The scalp hanging down in the third graphic I posted is being pulled forward in the second pic.
However, in the first pic, all this mass of scalp is gone as if it's been cut away.

Maybe it has been cut away!

In the back of the head photo his hair is short, in the one where his scalp is hanging down his hair is very long
I assume that they cut the hair to identify the entrance wound in the scalp.

This is the version from Lancer which is in my Autopsy Gallery.
it doesn't show the "Bone Flap"



I was trying to read what is printed on that 30 cm ruler but without success. It would be the key detail in determining if the photos are genuine or not. I believe that this photos are NOT from JFK autopsy because of the ruler and other details. Who ever published this photos was most probably searching through autopsy photos files to find most suitable to JFK wounds.

If anybody finds interesting, try to read what is printed on the ruler.

That would make sense.
This would tell us the pic you originally posted was the last pic taken in terms of chronology.

"Who ever published this photos was most probably searching through autopsy photos files to find most suitable to JFK wounds."

 The title of this thread concerns a very specific aspect of JFK's head injury - the "Bone Flap".
The BF has been shown to be clearly present in the Z-film and is part of the utterly catastrophic nature of this injury.
The notion that someone had a look through autopsy photos and found a white male of the appropriate age and build with a similar catastrophic head injury, a part of which was this very distinctive Bone Flap, is so ridiculous it pains me to have to waste my time pointing it out.
The photo is fake because you can't make out what's on the ruler??
Really?

The next time you shave I recommend Occam's Razor.
