“HONEST ANSWERS ABOUT THE MURDER OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY: A NEW LOOK AT THE JFK ASSASSINATION” (2021)
My best book–coming 2021!
Vincent Palamara was born in Pittsburgh and graduated from Duquesne University with a degree in Sociology.
Although not even born when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, Vince brings fresh eyes to an old case. In fact, Vince would go on to study the largely overlooked actions - and inactions - of the United States Secret Service in unprecedented detail, as well as achieving a world's record in the process, having interviewed and corresponded with over 80 former agents (the House Select Committee on Assassinations had the old record of 46 with a 6 million dollar budget and subpoena power from Congress), not to mention many surviving family members, White House aides, and even quite a few Parkland and Bethesda medical witnesses for a corresponding project. The result was Survivor's Guilt: The Secret Service & The Failure To Protect President Kennedy.
Vince is also the author of the books JFK: From Parkland To Bethesda, The Not-So-Secret Service, Who's Who in the Secret Service, and Honest Answers about the Murder of President John F. Kennedy: A New Look at the JFK Assassination.
All told, Vince has been favorably mentioned in over 140 JFK and Secret Service related books to date (including two whole chapters in Murder in Dealey Plaza, The Secret Service: The Hidden History Of An Enigmatic Agency by Philip Melanson, and the Final Report of the Assassination Records Review Board, among many others), often at length, in the bibliographies, and in the Secret Service - and even medical evidence - areas of these works.
Vince has appeared on the History Channel's THE MEN WHO KILLED KENNEDY (VHS and DVD), C-SPAN, Newsmax TV, A COUP IN CAMELOT (DVD/BLU RAY), KING KILL '63, THE MAN BEHIND THE SUIT (DVD), National Geographic's JFK: THE FINAL HOURS (including on DVD), PCN, BPTV, local cable access television, YouTube, radio, newspapers, print journals, at national conferences, and all over the internet. Also, Vince's original research materials, or copies of said materials, are stored in the National Archives (by request under Deed Of Gift by the ARRB), the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, Harvard University, the Assassination Archives and Research Center, and the Dallas Public Library.
Vince Palamara has become known (as he was dubbed by the History Channel in 2003) "the Secret Service expert." As former JFK Secret Service agent Joe Paolella proclaimed: "You seem to know a lot about the Secret Service, maybe even more than I do!" Agent Dan Emmett calls Vince a Secret Service expert in his new book.

Hello Mr. Palamara, I own and have read Survivors Guilt and have read many of your articles and have seen your presentations at conferences. Please tell me if you agree that another shot likely originated from the trunk of the limousine by firing through an opening directly behind the president. This may sound far-fetched, but the evidence for this is considerable: frame 313 of the Zapruder film captures the gory result of this shot as it travels forward and nearly directly upwards; the end of the Zapruder film captures Jackie Kennedy climbing on the trunk and banging on the trunk lid in anger at the source of the shot; the autopsy sketch of the president’s wounds clearly show a bullet entrance near the base of the skull and pointing upward; an analysis of the president’s head wounds by Dr. Robert Grossman at the ARRB hearings show a bullet track from low on the back of the head and then out the top; and several eyewitnesses reported smelling (fired) gunpowder odor at street level near the motorcade. Also noteworthy is the immediate removal of the limousine from Dallas and return to Washington D.C. to be hid and guarded and then completely remodeled. If this happened, the Secret Service definitely had to be involved. Best regards, Dave Botma
Thanks. I do not believe in that trunk theory.
