PITTSBURGH—In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the Community College of Allegheny County has invited Dr. Cyril Wecht to its North Campus on Wednesday, November 20 to discuss the tragic events which took place November 22, 1963. Wecht is a world-renowned forensic pathologist who is best known for his criticism of the Warren Commission’s findings concerning the assassination. The 11:30 a.m. presentation is free and open to the public.

In 1978 Wecht testified before the House Select Committee on Assassinations and was the only dissenter on a nine-person forensic pathology panel charged with reviewing the evidence of President Kennedy’s assassination. Wecht has long contested the conclusion of the Warren Commission, including its “single bullet” theory. Wecht’s CCAC presentation will focus on what he views as overwhelming evidence to support his assertion that there was more than one shooter present on the day the president was killed. 

Wecht has reviewed many high profile cases such as those related to the deaths of Sharon Tate, Elvis Presley, Sunny von Bülow, Laci Peterson and Anna Nicole Smith. He is the author of numerous books including Who Killed JonBenét Ramsey;Forensic Science and Law; and November 22, 1963: A Reference Guide to the JFK Assassination
