ARRB Medical Interviews

Newly added to the MFF Audio Archive are 8 taped interviews conducted by the Assassination Records Review Board, plus an additional private interview donated to the ARRB. All interviews in this set relate to the medical evidence in the JFK case, and some of them contain shocking allegations:

  • Saundra Kay Spencer - The woman who developed the JFK autopsy photographs said the set in the National Archives is not the set she processed.
  • John Stringer - The autopsy photographer of record said that the brain photographs in the Archives is not the set he took.
  • Francis X. O'Neill Jr. - This FBI agent, present at the autopsy, was shown an autopsy photo of the back of JFK's head and said "This looks like it's been doctored."
  • Audrey Bell - Parkland hospital nurse Bell told the ARRB that Dr. Perry had been pressured to change his story about a neck entry wound late in the evening of the autopsy, and that the Connally fragments were not authentic.

Other interviewees include backup autopsy photographer Floyd Riebe, X-ray technicial Jerrol Custer, HSCA staffer Andy Purdy, and the family of White House photographer Robert Knudsen. An additional phone interview of Acting Chief of Radiology John Ebersole was conducted by Dr. David Mantik.
