On Memorial Day came word that yet another Kennedy assassin "investigation"
commenced filming here: ReelzChannel's JFK: The Smoking Gun, a
self-proclaimed Canada-Australia co-production focusing on the research done
by Australian police officer-turned-crime novelist Colin McLaren. He's just
the latest in a long line of folks to proclaim he has "managed to solve a
crime that is every bit as shocking and incredible today as it was when it
happened 50 years ago," per today's heads-up.

WFAA-TV reports: Parkland's JFK treatment room locked away as a state secret

It seems that 10 years after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the government came in and bought Trauma Room No. 1 at Parkland Hospital, dismantled it and took it away.

“On October 1, 1973, the government issued U.S. Treasury Check 67191886 for $1,000 to purchase everything in the room.

"They came in with pick axes and hammers," Pyeatt said. "They chopped the room up into little pieces and put them in these barrels, packed all the equipment up and left with them."

Weeks earlier, as Dallas County Sheriff's deputies stood guard outside, the room had secretly been dismantled.

"Trauma Room No. 1 was demolished [...] August 17-18, 1973," according to a letter discovered in the National Archives. "The door, switches, outlets, lights, cabinets and ceramic wall tile were removed intact and moved to the Fort Worth Federal Archives and Records Center. All other building materials in the room were demolished and hauled away [...] where they could not be recovered."

For fifteen years, the items sat at the National Archives facility in Fort Worth near I-35W and I-20.”
