Paul Landis HSCA Outside Contact Report
Landis spoke to the HSCA on February 17, 1979. He only told them there were two shots from different directions. Nothing about finding a bullet or finding a bullet fragment.
Here is my transcription:
Asked what happened 22nd
Said he heard shots, different in
sound ∴ [therefore] different in direction.
1st behind, 2nd in front right.
Report written on 30th (CX 1024)
w/o reading newspapers. What
I remembered – not consensus of
what all of us thought. No
pressure to shape testimony (knew
of implication of 2 directions) Only interviewed by W/C for 10 minutes.
Voluntarily left service 6 months
after assassination. Shook up by
Dallas and works with Mrs. Kennedy after 22nd.
Now works with father-in-law in machine shop.
Landis told the HSCA that he was interviewed by the Warren Commission.
Does anybody have a record of this or is this another one of his stories?
