Robert F Kennedy Jr has been researching his father’s murderer for decades and recently revealed who he thinks actually pulled the trigger.
“On June 5, 1968, Cesar, an employee in a classified section of Lockheed’s Burbank facility, was moonlighting as a security guard at the Ambassador Hotel. He had landed the job about one week earlier,” RFK Jr posted to Instagram on September 11, 2019.
“Cesar waited in the pantry as my father spoke in the ballroom, then grabbed my father by the elbow and guided him toward Sirhan.”
Dailymail.co.uk reports: RFK Jr also claimed that it was Cesar, unloading his gun from behind as Kennedy fell to the floor after being struck with a bullet from Sirhan’s gun, who fired the fatal shot that night.
RFK Jr is not the first to accuse Cesar of having been involved in the assassination, with some even believing it was his bullet and not Sirhan’s which killed the presidential hopeful.
He had been called in to work at the hotel at the last second that night, with the plumber at Lockheed also working security detail part time with a local agency.
Many have pointed out in the past that Thane had extreme right-wing views and held a deep-seeded hatred for the Kennedy clan.
And it is true that he was standing by the then-New York senator’s side at the exact moment he was shot by Sirhan.
His gun was drawn as well at the time, and powder burns were found on his face.
And hios clip-on tie was found by Kennedy’s side, as if he had ripped it off while being shot
Cesar was married at the time.
There has long been support for the theory that there was a second gunman however after the autopsy report found that Kennedy died after being fatally struck from behind.
RFK Jr notes that in his post, which comes just a few months after he made waves with his sudden and staunch stance against mandatory vaccinations.
‘Sirhan fired two shots toward my father before he was tackled. From under the dog pile, Sirhan emptied his 8 chamber revolver firing 6 more shots in the opposite direction 5 of them striking bystander and one going wild,’ wrote RFK Jr.
‘By his own account, Cesar was directly behind my dad holding his right elbow with his own gun drawn when my dad fell backwards on top of him. Cesar repeatedly changed his story about exactly when he drew his weapon.’
He then added: ‘According to the Coroner, Dr. Thomas Noguchi, all 4 shots that struck my father were “contact” shots fired from behind my dad with the barrel touching or nearly touching his body.’
RFK Jr then gets into what Cesar did with the murder weapon and his motive for the murder.
‘Cesar sold his .22 to a co-worker weeks after the assassination warning him that it had been used in a crime. Cesar lied to police claiming that he’d disposed of the gun months before the assassination,’ claimed RFK Jr.
‘Cesar was a bigot who hated the Kennedys for their advocacy of Civil Rights for blacks.’
He then revealed that he had even planned to meet Cesar last June in the Philippines, but said that the planned sit-down was cancelled at the last second.
RFK Jr said that it was Cesar’s agent, Dan Moldea, who cancelled the meeting.
That is the same man who first gave weight to the theory that Cesar might have played a role in the shooting back in 1995, when he published The Killing of Robert F. Kennedy: An Investigation of Motive, Means, and Opportunity.
The investigative journalist and author laid out all the evidence in support of the second gunman theory, but then declared Cesar was not guilty of any crime in the book’s final pages.
Moldea also eulogized Cesar on Thursday, but in a far different tone than RFK Jr.
‘Thane Eugene Cesar, 77, the security guard falsely accused of killing RFK in June 1968, has just died,’ wrote Moldea.
‘Attached is an excerpt of my 12th interview with him. BTW: I am the only person in the world who has interviewed both Cesar and Sirhan Sirhan, who did it and did it alone.’
