Pat Speer was born in Los Angeles in 1961. After attending California State University, Northridge, he settled into a career in the entertainment industry. In 2003, he began studying the assassination of President John F. Kennedy full-time. He did so for 3 years, and continues studying the case, and writing about the case, part-time.
In 2004, and then again in 2005, Speer presented his findings on the medical evidence at the November in Dallas conference. In 2007, The Mysterious Death of Number 35, a 4-part video series written by and featuring Speer, debuted on Youtube. In part 1 of this series, Speer demonstrated that Dr. Michael Baden, the spokesman for the House Select Committee on Assassinations’ Forensic Pathology Panel – the last government panel to study the Kennedy assassination medical evidence – was confused by the evidence and testified with a key autopsy photo upside down.
It is Speer’s contention that Baden was confused because the medical evidence, as interpreted by his panel, made little sense, and was at odds with articles and textbooks written by the very members of his panel.
On his website, patspeer.com, and in numerous posts found online, Speer discusses a number of aspects beyond the medical evidence. Among the topics of discussion are the eyewitness evidence, the paraffin cast of Oswald’s cheek, and the paper bag purportedly used by Oswald to transport his rifle into the building.
Speer made an appearance at the 2009 COPA Conference in Dallas, and continues to be an active presence on the JFK forums online. He is a popular and dynamic speaker on the related subjects of President Kennedy’s assassination, and conducted major presentations at JFK conferences at Pittsburgh and Dallas in 2013.
