[jfk - people] earl rose

Earl Rose was the Dallas County medical examiner at the time of Kennedy’s assassination. He conducted autopsies on J.D. Tippit, Lee Harvey Oswald, and Jack Ruby. Minutes after Kennedy died, a debate erupted about what do to with the body. Rose insisted that he should do the autopsy but was overruled by presidential aides. The president’s body was returned to Washington and the autopsy was later performed at Bethesda Naval Hospital. The pathologists’ findings have been used to support an array of conspiracy theories about Kennedy’s death. In a 2003 interview with the Associated Press, Rose said he believed many of those theories wouldn’t have gained traction if he and his staff had done the postmortem exam.
