Best evidence

I have been sitting on this for months now, not sure what to make of it. Could it be … could it be that the crime of the twentieth century had been solved by a portrait artist who also thinks his own thoughts while painting?

This blog post is the result of an 80-page paper written by Miles W. Mathis, “The Hidden King(s): Camelot ruled from the cave of Merlin.” He first published in in 2007, and not too many people know about it. I have read the paper now four times. I am interested in the whole of the work, and have developed respect for Mathis as an honest man with a keen intellect. That does not make him right about everything, and I am careful now to separate fact from speculation.

When I first became interested in solving the murder of John F. Kennedy back in the late 1980’s, the most important work I came upon was a book called “Best Evidence,” by David Lifton. The author was (is) an insatiable investigator who ran down leads not pursued before, talked to people long ignored. He came up with a theory that between Dealey Plaza and Bethesda, Maryland, the body of John F. Kennedy had been surgically altered.

In crime speak, the term “best evidence” refers to the body of the victim in a murder investigation. It holds all the clues. If indeed the body had been altered, then the crime could be traced to those powerful enough to control it and perform the alterations. Gruesome as they were, Lifton found it necessary to show the public “leaked” photographs of the JFK corpse from the autopsy room. His work was groundbreaking and important … but wait a minute, said Mathis. What body?

The photo beneath the fold here might shock you if you’ve not seen it before, but relax. The man in the photo, according to Mathis, is not JFK, and is not even dead. In fact, Mathis presents us with a string of deaths for which no bodies were ever produced, and for which we have no credible evidence of the means or even the fact of death.

They are:

  • Joseph Patrick Kennedy Jr., oldest son of Joseph Kennedy Sr., supposedly killed in a explosion aboard a drone in the waning days of World War II. No body [the explosion conveniently caught on film].
  • Kathleen Kennedy, daughter of Joseph, supposedly killed in a plane crash in France in 1948, though none but Joe Sr. in the family thought it important to attend the funeral. No body.
  • John F. Kennedy, supposedly killed in Dealey Plaza in 1963, but as Mathis demonstrates and defends, no body. The man in the photo beneath the fold here, says Mathis, is a close lookalike, but a man in his thirties who is alive.
  • Robert F. Kennedy, supposedly killed in Los Angeles in 1968, but again, no body. As seen in the second photo beneath the fold here, what we have is a paste-up photo of RFK’s head superimposed on another body, held in place by a cuff and an invisible hand. (The necktie around the neck, says Mathis, is used to mask the paste-up job.) (In fact, we were never shown photos of the corpse, and the autopsy photos given us years later were drawings!) Other photos from that night (? – if taken that night) are fraught with inconsistencies and anomalies.
  • John F. Kennedy Jr., supposedly killed in a small plane crash in 1999, again, no body (cremated, ashes dumped in the ocean, so no DNA). John-John swims with Osama, another famous death for which we had no body.

It may seem gruesome and intrusive, but with no bodies, we have no proof of death.

I will not repeat Mathis’s work here. This was shocking to me, and surely to anyone reading this. Once over that hump, examine the work for yourself. If you don’t read the paper (the equivalent of a 200 page book), please don’t comment.

That is one strange family, this Kennedy clan. Five deaths, zero bodies.

I am staying away from speculation as to why these deaths would be faked, but Mathis has a theory and I have respect enough for for his intellect to put it in the kettle and let it come to a boil. The one thing that this man has demonstrated that is clear enough for me is this: we do not have bodies for five deaths, and therefore do not have proof of deaths.

Shocking. All these years trying to figure out who killed these people, forgetting to ask for the best evidence. Silly me. But after months of rumination, and years of suspecting we would never get to the bottom of these crimes, I wonder if this portrait artist has solved the non-crimes of the last century.

I am going to click the “publish” button here, and then wait for all the lightweights who don’t read but seem to know everything anyway to have at me. I am used to it, but then again, not. It is still annoying. Shit. Here we go.

  1. I lived in Cooperstown, NY and visited the “Cardiff Giant” (1868) on a regular basis at the Farmer’s Museum. I always wondered why so many people fell for the obvious fake. Mathis’s story is well worth a read. Most enjoyable was viewing the photos of the limos that were obviously switched. We are now able to disappear thousands of bodies, whole passenger planes and the most notorious “terrorist” in history. Practice makes perfect. One need only think of the “witness protection” program to see how easy it is to relocate thousands of people in new lives and new places, in plain sight — like Montana. The truth is out there.


  2. There is quite a bit of evidence in this paper that I have not mentioned, the differing limousines part of it, different occupants of the front seat, one “JFK” that was obviously a body double, plus the logical reasoning regarding the past fifty years of trying to discover who killed him without including the possibility “nobody.” The third motorcade stop mentioned by Connally was intriguing, where a body double was possibly slipped in. I would have been fooled like everyone – if I am told that is JFK in the motorcade, I do not look for any evidence that it is not.

    Of course, the question of “Why” is on my mind, and Mathis’ theory is credible if not convincing. I have been pondering that for months, and have no answer. One thing I suspect is that he gave short shrift to the fake death of Kathleen in 1948, as if she were not a player. She could have been as important as Joe, John and Robert in the big scheme of things.

    I too have had this paper by MM working on me for some time. Specifically, it never entered my consciousness that there were very few spectators present for the motorcade – thank you MM for pointing out this obvious observation. What that means for sure I don’t know, but clearly this was not your typical motorcade. One can see videos of JFK motorcades in other cities with 5 rows deep on either side.
    Great site!


  4. Yep, probably faked, but not for the reasons Mathis claims… No they didn’t take the government to ground, the privately owned government by the way, are those who granted themselves a license to print money out of nothing… No, they were probably all a part of the ACT in Dallas.

    They (big centralized business) wanted to remove the competition, the unions, and jimmy Hoffa’s crews and his networks, the big organized crime syndicate (private government, creditors) against the small fry DEBTOR based unions…

    A contract was probably placed on their heads by the small organized crime syndicate and the one way top get rid of the contract was to STAGE a theatrical event in Dallas, where the whole thing was most likely faked in plain sight….

    Governments are not underground, as Mathis suggests, they’re overtly obvious, always hidden in plain sight! They just do their best at their attempts to distract us here, through these dis and or mis-information sites…


    1. The small organized crime syndicate was/is probably another branch of the big crime syndicate. They are probably another useful conspiracy misdirection.
      Instead of accusing people of disinformation, maybe you can give better explanations. I agree that this assassination probably had nothing to do with the reorganization of the government. In the end we can only speculate on the relationship between the elite councils and the governments, since we are not insiders.


  5. heres how it went down..once they decided to remove,replace or hide jfk.they set up the plan fpr the trip to texas. they picked the route,right thru the masons territory,dealey plaza. they set up the fake morque pics ect. then they had a hollywood produced film mad,probably on a sunday so few people would notice. this would have become the zaprudder film. so all they film is a set of limos with motorcycle cops. ,moving thru dealy plaza..who would have on some other day they would run an ad for actors..they would have them stand by the road…in a straight line…no one waving or watching as the limos move cause there were no limos,that day of filming. then on another day they would film the actors,running up the hill as if looking for someone,and they would have actors lying on the ground. then everything would be spliced together to make the zaprudder film…..there is pics out there showing no one standing on the platform zapprudder was suppose to be on. and theres pics of the man woman,and son laying on the ground with professional photogs standing over them. and if you watch the long version of the zaprudder film…as the limo gos towards the over pass..theres a 4 door whit ford in front of them…when there should have only been cops on motorcycles…this prove that it was shot on another day…no one died,no asassains….. end of story..the rest is fake history


  6. Greetings,
    First, the white Lincoln in the pics was in Ft Worth. The blue limo was in Dallas, and in Houston the day before. IF Kennedy had made a stop in another city after Dallas, he may have used the white Lincoln, as they didn’t have more than one identical limo like they do now. Was Kennedy ever known to have two identical limos? Wasn’t GW Bush the first?
    Second, I am curious where the switch was made. If the limos were switched, maybe before they left Love Field? I was thinking the switch was made in Ft Worth. To me, Jackie looked more attractive in Ft Worth, except when leaving the hotel. There and in Dallas, she looked somewhat creepy…to me anyway. And it didn’t look like Nellie Connally at all in the limo at Love Field in Dallas in one photo. Could be totally wrong.
    Third, maybe it’s nothing, but didn’t Jack Kennedy basically wear the same dark suit in Houston and Fort Worth (the hotel speech), but a grayish suit, leaving the hotel in Ft Worth and in Dallas? He seemed to have redder hair in the Dallas motorcade, and in some pics, I’m not sure it’s him at Love Field.
    Fourth, where did the fake crowds start in the motorcade? Was it the turn from Main onto Houston, or was it before? As was mentioned, where were the stops the motorcade supposedly made? Identical limos, or the same limo in a hidden location, but the people were switched?
    Fifth, curious what your take is on Kennedy being Jimmy Carter? And Joe Kennedy being GHW Bush?
    Finally IF there is even a fraction of truth to what I have read so far…OH…MY…*******…G**!!
    Thanks for your time.
