Robert F Kennedy Jr. is calling for a new investigation into the 1968 assassination of his presidential candidate father.
"I didn't feel it was something I could dismiss," said RFK Jr. who recently met with Sirhan and looked over his father's autopsy report. "I was disturbed that the wrong person might have been convicted of killing my father."
Sirhan Sirhan is serving a life sentence for the murder that he confessed to but claims to not remember.

On the night of June 5, 1968, Kennedy was celebrating his victory in California's Democratic presidential primary. As he was leaving, he was shot three times...
Sirhan was standing in front of Kennedy at the time of the shooting, but an autopsy report found Kennedy was shot at point blank range from behind. Over the years new evidence reportedly shows as many as 13 shots were fired that night.
But Sirhan's gun held only eight bullets. That's one reason why many now question Sirhan's guilt – including Robert Kennedy Jr.
"There were too many bullets. You can't fire 13 shots out of an eight-shot gun," RFK Jr told the Post.
