( – A former Secret Service agent who was present during President John F. Kennedy’s assassination recently spoke up about the incident, expressing doubt about the findings of the commission that was tasked with investigating the assassination.

Paul Landis, in an interview with The New York Times, stated that he had always believed Lee Harvey Oswald had acted alone in the assassination in 1963 but that now he was starting to think that perhaps there were other shooters that were involved. He indicated that there are differences between his experience and the findings of the Warren Commission regarding the day of the assassination. Kennedy was fatally shot in the head while traveling through Dallas in a Lincoln Continental Convertible on Nov. 22, 1963.

Landis was in one of the cars following Kennedy when the gunshot was heard. However, he said many of his recollections about the day do not match up with the official statement he gave after the shooting. Landis has stressed that he does not believe in any of the conspiracy theories but that he still wanted to talk about what he had witnessed.

The Warren Commission concluded that there was no connection between Oswald or the man who killed him, Jack Ruby, and any domestic or international plot to kill the U.S. President. According to them, the bullet after hitting Kennedy had traveled and hit then-Texas Gov. John Connally, which was found on the stretcher that carried him to the medical facility.

However, Landis claims that based on his recollection, the bullet was originally found stuck in the seat of the vehicle after Kennedy had been taken away. He added that he remembers taking that bullet and putting it on Kennedy’s stretcher, but had thought that the bullet must have fallen onto Connally’s stretcher at some point. Now, he says he’s not entirely sure whether Oswald was the only shooter.
