Made in 2007, RFK Must Die was released in the UK in 2008. It made it to the USA on the 5th of June, 2008 – 40 years after the assassination.
The investigative documentary was produced and directed by Shane O’Sullivan. It is not just a documentary about Robert Francis Kennedy’s assassination. Instead, the film tries to challenge what everyone knows so far. The director has gained interviews and footage indicating that the story might be a little different. Plus, there are many clues that could provide different leads, yet the authorities have left the story with its initial official outcome.
FBI agent William Bailey mentioned noticing more bullet holes around the pantry where Kennedy was assassinated. The idea is fairly simple – a second gunman could have been involved, as no one remembers Sirhan shooting more times. Then, there were more witnesses around Kennedy when he was killed. Some of them claim that Sirhan was a few feet in front of him, which would make the killing bullet from behind the right ear impossible. This lead indicates that Kennedy was shot from behind. There were only a few agents behind him at that time, so it could have been an inside job. Things can go even further though.
