How many shots were fired at JFK
? The Warren Commission decided three, but others say four. The number of shots might reveal whether Lee Harvey Oswald was the sole gunman or whether there was an accomplice. Though many of us are familiar with the film footage of the assassination
, there was also a single audio recording of the shooting -- a motorcycle policeman's radio transmitted the sound back to police headquarters where it was taped. Unfortunately, time has damaged the tape. A new digitization process should be able to analyze the grooves on the tape and make a clear copy. In the digitized copy
, it is likely that static and other noise will be able to be filtered out and listeners will be able to hear whether there were three or four shots fired.
