Proud of East Texas: Dr. John Hudnall

Posted: Updated:


     Fifty years after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas on November 22,1963, questions about his death remain. What happened at Parkland Hospital after the shots were fired could have answered those questions.  

Tyler Doctor John Hudnall was a second year ENT resident at Parkland and in the ER when Kennedy was brought in.  His friend Dr.Jim Carrico was the first physician to work on Kennedy, knowing full well that he was mortally wounded.  

Although it was Texas law that the autopsy should be done in Dallas, the Secret Service removed Kennedy's body, loading it in Air Force One and flew it to the U.S. Naval Center In Bethesda, possibly compromising the chain of evidence.

     Dr. Hudnall believes if the autopsy had been done in Dallas, the results would have answered many of those unanswered questions that have grown into conspiracy theories.  Hudnall, as well as Dr. Carrico , John Connally, and others believe there was more than one shooter because of the characteristics of the wounds and other evidence.  The assassination of President John F. Kennedy remains one of the great mysteries of our time
