Investigative team finds room was destroyed back in 1972

As the 50th anniversary of the John  F. Kennedy assassination is upon us come November, the emergency room where doctors tried to save his life has been secretly dismantled and hidden away from the prying eyes of the world. Much speculation and conspiracy theories abound about that fateful day on the knoll in Dallas, Texas - and appears that some hands have made certain that parts of America's past remain buried.

There is no federal paper trail on where the stretcher, suction machine, X-ray viewing box and the IV pole are today.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The emergency operating room where doctors tried to save President Kennedy's life has reportedly been broken into pieces and covertly stored in crates for years, guarded as if it were a state secret.

An investigative team from local Dallas station WFAA went in search of the broken tiles and medical equipment used on that fateful day. Reporters discovered that the room was destroyed in 1972 when Parkland Hospital was going through an expansion and Trauma Room 1 had to be demolished.

"They came in with pick axes and hammers. They chopped the room up into little pieces and put them in these barrels, packed all the equipment up and left with them," Don Pyeatt, a hospital employee who saw the demolition take place on October 1, 1973 says.

Pyeatt took the only known photos of the room before it was torn down, unaware of its historic context. Without any previous knowledge, many would think it was simply just a standard emergency room.

Remnants of historic spot were not simply thrown in a Dumpster. Hospital officials wrote to the Smithsonian Institute to see if they wanted the remnants of the room.

A chain of correspondence between Dallas County Hospital District and the National Archives suggest that the Archives took control of the goods.

"All of us feel that it is extremely important that any parts of it be kept out of the hands of anyone who might seek to use them in any inappropriate way," the library director pleaded n a letter that is now stored at the National Archives in Maryland.

It appears that the Kennedy family did not want to be associated with the story, should it come out.

"If any reporters get on to the story, they should be told that the employees are donating the equipment to the Archives (NOT the JFK Library)," one of the letters from JFK Library officials read.

"Further, they should be told neither the Kennedy family nor the JFK library is involved."

The National Archives stored them in a facility in Fort Worth for 15 years.

At that point in 1988, the Fort Worth administrator wrote to Washington saying: "Apparently the Kennedy and Johnson libraries do not want any part of [the Parkland objects]. I really do not believe that the material has the 'historical' value to warrant its retention."

The crates of broken ceramic tiles stayed boxed in the Fort Worth facility for a total of 34 years until they were moved to an underground facility in Lenexa, Kansas six years ago. The location of the medical equipment that left undestroyed remains a mystery.

There is no federal paper trail on where the stretcher, suction machine, X-ray viewing box and the IV pole are today.
