Similar to new DNA technology springing innocent people from prison after serving decades of time, new fingerprint technology may have brought forward a breakthrough in the Kennedy assassination. But the evidence is not forthcoming in the major media – why?
That seems to always be the question, doesn’t it? Maybe the answer lies with the fact that it’s one more piece of solid evidence pointing at the one person with the most to gain from JFK’s death: Lyndon Johnson.. (hat tip Dan Eden @ View Zone)
When president Kennedy was shot in Dallas, Texas in 1963, police and the FBI stormed the Texas Book Depository and located a rifle near an open window. The so-called “sniper’s nest” had been made by arranging several cardboard boxes so as to both hide the shooter from anyone who might have been on the 6th floor at the time and also to support the rifle while the shooter took aim from the window overlooking the president’s motorcade.
Investigators scoured the scene for fingerprints but the rifle and the boxes had apparently been wiped clean. The only forensic element that could possibly identify the killer was a partial fingerprint that was lifted from one of the cardboard boxes.
In an attempt to identify this print, officials took the prints of everyone who worked at the Book Depository, including the main suspect, Lee Harvey Oswald. They also compared this print to police and FBI agents who had access to the crime scene, but the print remained an enigma.
The print, as it turns out, belongs to Malcolm Wallace, the long time friend and associate of president Lyndon Baines Johnson.
Fingerprints can become distorted, bent and stretched by the surface of various objects. The science of fingerprint analysis instead examines many unique features found in the fingerprint patterns. It is an exact science. A match is given a score based on the number of elements that are identical on any two sets of prints. A “match” is usually confirmed if there are at least 12 identical elements.
The prints from Dallas and Wallace match on 14 unique points. What’s more intriguing is that a recent documentary on the subject obtained the analysis of a fingerprint expert who had done this type of work for 35 years. Upon his examination he found a correlation of 34 points. There’s no doubt — it’s Wallace.
Who exactly is Malcolm Wallace?
Malcolm Wallace was born and educated in Texas. He was an intelligent man who graduated from the University of Texas and was quickly recruited by Lyndon Johnson and given a job at the Federal Department of Agriculture.
He first came to the attention of authorities when he was arrested in 1951, tried and convicted of killing a professional golfer named John Douglas Kinser. At the time, Kinser was having an affair with Lyndon Johnson’s sister, Josefa — and was also involved with Wallace’s wife. Josepha was an alcoholic and drug user. She had a reputation for being promiscuous and, especially when she was high, she disclosed personal information and stories about Lyndon. It was feared that she might have already disclosed some illegal acivities about Johnson to Kinser, specifically certain activities he had engaged in during his race for the Senate.
Kinser was gunned down in his golf club. Shortly after, Wallace was arrested and found guilty of First Degree Murder. During his 10 day trial, Wallace was represented by LBJ’s own lawyer. Johnson took a room near to the courthouse and had runners keep him updated on the testimony and proceedings. To everyone’s surprise, the trial concluded with Wallace receiving a 5 years suspended sentence!
Later, in 1961, Wallace again was implicated in another murder for Johnson. This time the victim was Henry Marshall, an official with the local Agriculture Department who had been investigating an illegal source of Johnson’s funding. In 1961, State Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation official Henry Marshall was investigating a broad series of fraudulent government subsidies — amounting to figures in the seven or eight digit range — allotted to Billie Sol Estes, a close personal friend of Senate Majority Leader then Vice-President Lyndon B. Johnson. Marshall had uncovered a paper trail that was leading him closer and closer to Johnson himself. It is reported that all the guilty parties held a meeting at which Johnson gave the order, “Get rid of him.”
END OF VIEW ZONE REPORT:
So maybe it’s true and perhaps it’s more food for conspiratorial thought – but why isn’t the fingerprint evidence at least being followed up? The answer to that lies in the same locker room where a lot of Texas politicians talk before playing golf, tennis or cards…
