Was an innocent man framed for Bobby Kennedy's murder?


Senator Robert F Kennedy still had the screams of a delirious crowd ringing in his ears after winning the California primary on June 5, 1968, when shortly after midnight he left the celebrations in the ballroom of the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles and made his way into the kitchens.

He'd been told it was a shortcut to the Press room and, ignoring the misgivings of his bodyguard about the security risks, he made his way through the cramped quarters, pausing to shake hands with kitchen workers.

The handsome politician was looking to follow his older brother John into the White House but, seconds later, instead followed him in falling victim to the 'Kennedy curse' when he, too, was killed by an assassin's bullet.
