A revised version of the following article is available here:-
Whilst some cling to the belief that John and Jackie Kennedy were
happily married, John’s womanizing was tireless. Perhaps this was
encouraged by the medication he took for Addison’s Disease.
Jackie was far from perfect herself, having spent much of October 1963
on the yacht of her future husband, the billionaire Aristotle Onassis.
Certainly, all was not well in “Camelot”, and my previous article looked
at the persuasive “Jackie Shot JFK” theory:-
Apart from the assassination itself, Jackie’s climb onto the trunk, is the
most memorable sequence of the Zapruder film.
Conveniently, Jackie said that she could not remember these moments.
Others have claimed that she was “recovering parts of John’s skull and
Do the Zapruder frames suggest a more plausible explanation?
Between frames 344 and 350, Jackie’s Secret Service bodyguard Clint
Hill, points out several areas of the trunk to Jackie:-

The pointing is clear, but what Hill is pointing at, is hard to see. However,
in frame 345, Hill appears to point at a faint diagonal line on the trunk:-
Was this line one of several incriminating trails of blood, which indicated
that the real fatal bullet, entered John’s head from Jackie’s side of the car?
Supposedly, the fatal “Magic Bullet” from the Texas School Book Depository,
had come from the other side of the car, behind John.
Certainly, no substantial pieces of skull or brain are visible on the trunk.
The Zapruder film, shows both brain tissue and skull being blown out from
the front of John’s head. A bullet entering from the rear, from Jackie’s
position or the Book Depository, would have pushed brain and skull parts
forward, as shown.
Some claim that the forehead exit wound is fake. This is partly based on
the testimony of probable conspirators. An alleged “large rear exit wound”
appears in many frames, and seems to be a simple shadow.

After receiving Clint’s directions, Jackie climbs onto the trunk, and seems
to clean areas with her right gloved hand:-
Blood spatter patterns often help to solve murders. Any such patterns
on the trunk, where likely to be seen and photographed, on the way to
Parkland Memorial Hospital.
Hill’s pointing causes him difficulties, because it delays his attempts to
board the limousine, which accelerates soon after the assassination is
complete. Click on images to enlarge them:-

Seconds earlier, during the assassination, gun smoke rose from Jackie’s
position, as did two bullets, at an angle only the perfectly positioned
Jackie could have achieved:-

So, did Jackie lose her mind on 11/22, climb onto the trunk, and then forget
about her strange behaviour? Or, was she on the trunk to cover her bloody
tracks, so that she could move on to a billionaire lifestyle, as planned?
In light of all of the evidence for “Jackie Shot JFK”, I am forced to conclude
