Robert F. Kennedy Jr. says he is not convinced that Sirhan Sirhan killed his father



Robert F. Kennedy Jr. revealed that he did not believe that Sirhan B. Sirhan, convicted of the murder of his father Bobby Kennedy in 1968, had assassinated him and believed that a second shooter had been involved [19659002] In an interview with the Washington Post, which was released on Saturday, Kennedy said he had met Sirhan for three hours after months of reviewing autopsy results, police reports, and witness interviews that were there when his father was killed. It's been nearly 50 years since Bobby Kennedy was killed at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, but the 64-year-old said he reached a point where he had to talk to the man convicted of murdering his father ,

"I went there because I was curious and worried about what I saw in the evidence," Kennedy said, revealing no details of their conversation. "I was worried that the wrong person might have been convicted for killing my father, and my father was the chief law enforcement officer in this country."

He added, "I think it bothered him if anyone did Meanwhile, Sirhan had admitted his trial of the then Democratic presidential candidate of 1969, but repeatedly said he did not remember pulling the trigger. An autopsy report also showed that Bobby Kennedy was shot in the back – when Sirhan stood in front of him.

Reports through the years also showed that 13 shots were fired that day when Sirhan's gun held only eight bullets. Several witnesses said that Sirhan was not close to the senator.

Kennedy now supports a call to re-examine the murder of his father. His doubts about Sirhan, who is in prison and kills his father, follow the belief that a second shooter was also at the scene.

Paul Schrade – shot in the head while walking behind Bobby Kennedy – said he also believes Sirhan did not shoot the politician. He believes Sirhan's bullets hit him and four other injured.

"Yes, he shot me, yes, he shot four other people and targeted Kennedy," Schrade told the Washington Post. "Importantly, he did not shoot Robert Kennedy, why did not they come after the second shooter? They knew immediately about him, they did not want to know who it was, they wanted a quickie."

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

The court has refused to initiate a new investigation into the attack, the Washington Post reported. Sirhan's appeals have been repeatedly denied, including not until 2016.

This is not the first time that Kennedy supports a controversial theory. He argued last year that certain vaccines for children are not safe.
