19. After She Heard The Shot, Jackie Tried To Flee The Vehicle

The truth of the matter is, no one is entirely sure if Jackie tried to leave the vehicle her and JFK were in or not. When the police questioned Jackie immediately after, she told them she couldn’t remember trying to crawl out of the vehicle by getting on top of the trunk but being pulled back in by Secret Service Agent Clint Hill. Hill has always believed that Jackie was trying to retrieve pieces of her husband’s skull, which had been shattered by the third shot.
