    Robert F. Kennedy
    was assassinated 40 years ago this month at the Ambassador Hotel
    in Los Angeles. Sirhan B. Sirhan, a 24 year old immigrant, is the
    alleged lone gunman and is presently serving a life sentence.

    In a new book,
    An Open and Shut Case, Dr. Robert Joling and Philip Van Praag
    have joined a growing list of people who don’t believe that
    Sirhan acted alone.

    Joling and
    Van Praag, both forensic scientists, claim that after analyzing
    audio recordings of the assassination they have concluded that at
    least 13 shots were fired. The handgun Sirhan used only had the
    capacity to fire eight shots. They believe that there were two guns
    and that the fatal shot came from behind Robert Kennedy, while witnesses
    claim that Sirhan was in front of Kennedy. According to a March
    27, 2008 ABC report by Pierre Thomas, Joling claims, “It can
    be established conclusively that Sirhan did not shoot Senator Kennedy.
    And in fact not only did he not do it, he could not have done it.”

    Los Angeles
    Coroner Thomas Noguchi conducted the official autopsy on the body
    of Robert Francis Kennedy on the morning of June 6, 1968. Noguchi
    stated that the shot that killed RFK “had entered through the
    mastoid bone, an inch behind the right ear and had traveled upward
    to sever the branches of the superior cerebral artery.”
