RFK Jr says he was not convinced that Sirhan killed his father

Robert F. Kennedy Jr, says he is not convinced, the man behind bars for the murder of his father, the man is responsible.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr revealed that he did not believe that Sirhan B. Sirhan, the man convicted of killing his father, Bobby Kennedy in 1968, the assassination had to be carried out, and believes that a second shooter was involved.

In an interview with the Washington Post Saturday, Kennedy published said, he met with Sirhan after three hours of months of review of the autopsy spend results, police reports and interrogations of witnesses, which was, as his father was killed. It is almost 50 years since Bobby Kennedy was killed in Los Angeles, Ambassador Hotel, but the 64-year-old said that he reached a point where he had to talk to the man convicted of killing his father.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who said he does not believe that Sirhan shot Sirhan, his father in 1968, and believes there was a second shooter who pulled the trigger.


“I went there because I was curious and shocked by what I had seen, in the evidence,” Kennedy said, not to reveal details of their conversation. “I was worried that the wrong person has been convicted of killing my father. My father is the chief law enforcement officer in this country.”

He added, “I think it would have bothered him if someone was in prison for a crime you did not commit.”

Sirhan had admitted to shooting during his 1969 trial of the then-Democratic presidential candidate, but said he did not know, to remember the trigger. An autopsy report also showed Bobby Kennedy was shot in the back — if Sirhan stood in front of him.

Reports over the years, also 13 shots were fired, the day Sirhan the gun held only eight bullets. A number of witnesses said Sirhan was in close proximity to the senator.

Kennedy supported a call for a reinvestigation of his father’s murder. His doubts of Sirhan, the life there in prison, the assassination of his father, follows the belief that a second shooter was also in the scene.

Sirhan Sirhan was convicted of the assassination of Democratic presidential candidate Robert Kennedy in 1968.


Paul Schrade — who was shot in the head while walking behind Bobby Kennedy said that he thinks that Sirhan shoot the politicians. He believes that Sirhan’s bullets hit him and four wounded other that day.

“Yes, he wanted to shoot me. Yes, he shot four more people and is aimed at Kennedy,” Schrade said the Washington Post. “The most important thing is, he did not shoot Robert Kennedy. Why don’t you go after the second shot? She knew him immediately. She did not know who it was. She wanted a quickie.”

Schrade, 93, was convinced that Kennedy, a lawyer and environmental activist, to look into the assassination, him the autopsy report. Kennedy, the third oldest of 11 children, was 14 when his father was killed.

The court refused to open a new investigation into the assassination, reported the Washington Post. Sirhan’s appeals have been rejected several times, including the only in 2016.
