Silly goose. The limo was not returned to the TSBD. It went straight to
the airport and then to Washington where it was examined in the White

Except for the hole in the floor.

No, one one told him to stop and they were already putting the top on the
limo before he started to clean the back seat. When you see him leaning in
the top is already on. Not only did they want to stop people from LOOKING
at the gore, they wanted to stop people from taking photos of the back
seat and prevent spectators from contaminating the crime scene.

Yes, a kid took a picture when the limo arrived at Parkland, but a SS
agent grabbed the camera and ripped out the film.
