More James Tague not only witnessed President John F. Kennedy's assassination on Nov. 22, 1963, he also found himself in the line of fire. Tague, then 27, is believed to be the only bystander who was wounded that day in Dallas. A missed shot from the assassin's gun struck a curb near where Tague was standing and sent debris flying into his face. "A very minor injury," says Tague, who still lives near Dallas. Tague’s experience at Dealey Plaza ultimately led Warren Commission investigators to conclude that one of the three shots missed and that another single bullet injured both JFK and Texas Gov. John Connally. Critics of the commission have long questioned the so-called “magic bullet theory.” Through the years, Tague’s own curiosity has transformed him from eyewitness to JFK assassination researcher. “I did not let it consume my life; I just say it made my life interesting,” says Tague, now 77 and retired from the car sales business. His book, “LBJ and the Kennedy Killing,” was published in 2013. “It hit me that the good Lord wants me to write this book,” Tague says. “He wants the public to know the truth about what happened to Kennedy, who was behind it, the full story.” Less
