JFK: Analysis of Suspicious Witness Deaths in Simkin’s JFK Index
Updated: Aug.9 2015
This is a summary update of a previous post on John Simkin’s Index of 656 JFK-related individuals. https://richardcharnin.wordpress.com/2013/12/25/jfk-related-unnatural-and-suspicious-deaths-in-the-jfk-calc-spreadsheet-and-simkins-jfk-index/
Simkin’s Index: http://spartacus-educational.com/JFKindex.htm
The list is in JFK Calc for reference and probability calculations.
Seventy(70) individuals in the JFK Index are also included among 122 suspicious deaths in the JFK Calc spreadsheet. Of the 122 suspicious deaths in JFK Calc, approximately 67 were called to testify in four investigations. The fact that both lists contain so many names is proof that they are relevant. Naysayers can no longer make the ridiculous argument that they are not JFK-related.
Of the 70 suspicious deaths in Simkin’s index, 44 were OFFICIALLY RULED UNNATURAL, including 22 homicides. Only 8 unnatural deaths and ONE homicide would be expected in a random group of 656 from 1964-78 based on historical mortality rates.
The probability P of 22 homicides among the 656 is 1 in 150 billion trillion (6.4E-24). If we triple the 0.000084 national homicide rate, P= 1 in 23 trillion (4.3E-14).
But these probabilities are too HIGH. Statistical expectation indicates that of the suspicious deaths (officially ruled accidents, suicides, heart attacks, sudden cancers) approximately 26 were HOMICIDES. So there were approximately 48 homicides among the 70 suspicious deaths.
The probability of 48 homicides from 1964-78 among the 656 in the JFK Index is 1 in a trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion!
The Simkin JFK Index of 656 key individuals consists of 4 categories.
Suspicious deaths include:
10 of 190 Important Figures;
19 of 86 Important Witnesses;
5 of 206 Investigators, Researchers and Journalists;
36 of 174 Possible Conspirators
