Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy U.S. Senator Part 3

About the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, history and biography of assassin Sirhan Bishara Sirhan, investigation of the crime

The Victim: ROBERT FRANCIS KENNEDY, U.S. senator

A hearing was held on May 13, 1974, by Supervisor Baxter Ward of Los Angeles County's 5th District. The subject was the reopening of the case against Sirhan Bishara Sirhan. Drs. MacDonell, Guinn, and Bradford attended the proceedings and reiterated their professional observations. Strong support for the 2-gun theory came from these experts. Wolfer, Younger, and Busch all failed to appear.

A woman was seen with Sirhan Sirhan in the pantry area just prior to the assassination. She was wearing a polka-dot dress. This woman left before Kennedy entered through the swinging doors.

During the Kennedy speech that night, one campaign worker, Ms. Sandy Serrano, had left the room and gone onto the Embassy Room balcony to escape the smoke and heat of this evening of excitement. While she stood there, she saw a young woman in a white polka-dot dress go past her and into the building. She was accompanied by 2 other persons. Later, after the murder of Robert Kennedy, Ms. Serrano was "nearly run over" by these people as they left. The woman wearing the polka-dot dress go past her and into the building. She was accompanied by 2 other persons. Later, after the murder of Robert Kennedy, Ms, Serrano was "nearly run over" by these people as they left. The woman wearing the polka-dot dress shouted, "We shot him!" according to Serrano. She asked whom they had shot and the woman reportedly answered, "We shot Kennedy!"

The police produced a woman by the name of Cathy Fulmer, but Serrano did not identify her as the one she had seen. However, Fulmer was found dead in a motel room several days after Sirhan was convicted.

All of this evidence seems to cast substantial doubt on the government case against Sirhan as a lone assassin.

The Alleged Assassin: Sirhan Bishara Sirhan was born on March 19, 1944, in Jordan. When he was 13 years old, his parents brought him to the U.S.

The family resided in Pasadena, where Sirhan attended the local elementary, junior high, and high schools. He presented no disciplinary problems to his teachers or his parents.

Later he attended Pasadena City College, but dropped out when an illness struck his sister which resulted in her death. He had proved himself a responsible worker in the few jobs he'd had.

What might motivate the 26-year-old Jordanian to fire shots at the senator, even if his bullets never hit the mark they were intended for, might be the question that most troubles anyone looking at the facts.

According to his mother, Sirhan fell into strange company about 8 months prior to the assassination. Sirhan, with no history of any mental disorder, only then began to keep late hours in contrast to his earlier habits.

Doctors agree that if a subject cannot recall an act on some level of his conscious or unconscious mind, he may have been in some way behaviorally modified or programmed. Or he may be mentally very sick. It is doubtful that Sirhan's mental state was bad, but the possibility of behavioral modification or programming is still there since Sirhan has yet to be able to recall drawing a gun or firing it that night.

Since others could have been involved in the murder of Robert F. Kennedy, an investigation is strongly in order to determine the truth in this case once and for all.
