On Eve of Parole Hearing, RFK’s Assassin Says He Doesn’t Remember the Shooting
Wednesday, March 2, 2011
A lawyer for Sirhan Sirhan, the confessed assassin of Robert F. Kennedy, plans to present new evidence at a parole board hearing suggesting that he did not act alone, was potentially brain washed and cannot remember anything about the 43-year-old shooting.
“There is no question he was hypno-programmed,” lawyer William F. Pepper told ABCNews.com. “He was set up. He was used. He was manipulated.”
Sirhan will appear before a California parole board on Wednesday for the 14th time since his May 1969 sentencing. It is the first time he will be represented by Pepper.
Taking a page from the conspiracies that have dogged the assassination of Kennedy’s brother President John F. Kennedy, Pepper plans to introduce new evidence that suggests there was a second gunman who fatally shot RFK in the kitchen of a Los Angeles hotel, following his victory in the 1968 California presidential primary.
