Robert F. Kennedy assassination

Robert Kennedy

U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated in Los Angeles on June 5, 1968. At the time he was killed, Kennedy had just won the California primary and was the front-runner for the Democratic nomination.

He died the next day, on June 6, 1968. Like his brother's 1963 assassination, Kennedy's death has been plagued with questions. These questions have led various third parties to come up with theories and solutions to the crime.

The killer, Sirhan Sirhan, attributed the killing to Kennedy's support for Israel.
