Photo Engineer Who Analyzed Zapruder Film No Fan of Conspiracy Theories About Footage of JFK Assassination

Analyzed the film for authenticity in the 90s, Says the CIA shouldn't have made it top secret, fueling theories


Roland Zavada never imagined that he would become a figure in the conspiracy theories that surround the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. And he's not particularly happy about it.

"I don't like it at all," he said.

But the Pittsford resident, a retired Kodak engineer, has found himself the subject of considerable attention from those who remain interested in re-examining the case, from armchair detectives to published authors.

"I am uncomfortable with the authors' unfounded criticism of my work, while they have limited film technology background," Zavada added.
