153. He was most definitely a conspiracy theorist.

Among other things, he claimed to have "confirmed" that LBJ was behind eleven different murders in Texas. He also claimed that there were three shooters at JFK, and that the head shot was from the grassy knoll. We know this is impossible from the forensic evidence -- the only way there could have been more than one shooter is if the other shooters missed cleanly, and neither they nor any of the bullets or shell casings were ever found.

Nobody is disputing that Darby is an expert. What people dispute is whether the fingerprints that he matched were actually found at the sniper's nest in the TSBD. The only evidence of this is that McClellan says so: the word of one conspiracy theorist. On the other side is the fact that this would be the only evidence, not just to put Wallace at the scene of the crime, but to even suggest that he and Oswald knew each other, or that Wallace was even in Dallas that day.

As I pointed out, the problem with the story is that there were no unidentified fingerprints left at the scene, only one palm print. This is clear in that document I linked to in the other post. Which means, if McClellan is telling the truth, there are only two possibilities, regarding the fingerprint that McClellan showed Darby:
1) The fingerprint is one of the ones that had already been matched to someone else by the Warren Commission, which means that now we have one fingerprint that matches two different individuals.
2) McClellan went back to the scene of the crime 30 years later and found a new fingerprint that the original investigation missed.
Neither of these is particularly likely.
