unambiguous evidence of a fourth bullet (which Oswald could not have fired)?

at the Parkland Hospital in Dallas,
twenty-seven year old Jim Tague of Plainfield, Indiana died as a result of
complications arising from a wound to the right hand side of his face
caused by a gunshot at the Dealey Plaza on November 22nd.
The deceased had been driving to downtown Dallas to have lunch with a
friend when he came upon a traffic jam due to the presidential motorcade.
This caused him to stop his car, get out of it, and stand by Dealey Plaza,
at the south curb of Main Street, 520 feet (158 m) southwest of the Texas
School Book Depository. He was a few feet east of the eastern edge of the
triple overpass railroad bridge when he was critically wounded.
The Warren Commission would later determine that the cause of death was
the stray bullets from security forces who had over-reacted to a
firecracker being set off by three drunken tramps standing behind the
grassy knoll. Despite the mysterious disappearance of those bullets, this
version of events was supported by articles in Life Magazine
the Reader's Digest
written by future Presidents Richard Nixon
and Gerald Ford who would later be elected to the highest office to ensure
that "government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not
perish from the earth".

James "Jim" Thomas Tague (born October 17, 1936, Plainfield, Indiana) was a
witness to the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy in Dallas,
Texas on November 22, 1963. He received a minor wound on his right cheek
during the assassination. He is the only person, in addition to Kennedy and
Texas Governor John B. Connally, known to have been wounded by gun fire in
Dallas' Dealey Plaza that day. In 2003 James Tague wrote a book, Truth
Withheld (ISBN 0-9718254-7-5), detailing his experiences during and
after the assassination. To view guest historian's comments on this post
