Powder burns on Kennedy's clothing reveal that all three of his wounds were from a gun fired from 0 to 1-1/2 inches away. And yet, all witnesses
claim that Sirhan, who was in front of Kennedy, never got closer than three feet away.
Sirhan's gun could hold only eight bullets. Seven bullets were removed from victims, an eighth bullet was traced through two ceilings into
airspace, and two more bullets were identified as lodged in the door frame of the pantry by both LAPD and FBI personnel.
Three bullets were found in Robert Kennedy, and a fourth grazed his suit jacket. The upward angle of each trajectory was close to 80 degrees. And
yet, all witnesses claim Sirhan's gun was completely horizontal for his first two shots, after which his gun hand was repeatedly slammed against the
top of a steam table.
All four shots; the fatal penetration to the brain, the shot that passed through the right shoulder pad of the Senator's coat, and two additional
bullets that entered Kennedy's body were all fired from the back and all produced powder residue patterns which indicated that they were all fired
from a distance of only a few inches. Since RFK was walking towards Sirhan, and his body was always facing Sirhan during the shots even as he fell
backwards it is impossible these shots originated from Sirhan's weapon.
1. The results of the 1968 test firing of Sirhan's gun were missing.
2. The test gun used for ballistics comparison and identification was destroyed.
3. Over 90% of the audio taped witness testimony was lost or destroyed. Of the 3470 interviews the LAPD conducted, only 301 were preserved.
4. On August 21, 1968, 2400 photographs from the original investigation were burned, in the medical-waste incinerator at LA County General
