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?
