Even though Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated 50 years ago, the mystery behind his death still endures. A new podcast aims to unravel this mystery.


The RFK Tapes will look into many aspects of the past evidence. One of the new plots of the investigation is that suspected that the man who was arrested for the murder didn’t act alone.

Robert F. Kennedy was shot and killed on June 6, 1968, at the Ambassador Hotel in California. Now a new podcast called The RFK Tapes, from Cadence13 and the producers of Crimetown looks to find overlooked evidence in the case.

The podcast will look at police tapes, rare recordings, and new interviews with the people who were there. The intention of the podcast is to uncover what really happened the night Kennedy was killed.

However, new evidence suggests that things were not what they seemed. The podcast’s co-hosts will be Zac Stuart-Pontier and Bill Klaber.

One of the things they discussed on the show was how Sirhan Sirhan, the man who was convicted of killing Kennedy, may not have been alone in the pantry of the Ambassador Hotel, where Kennedy was shot.

Some witnesses said they saw a woman wearing a polka-dot dress standing next to Sirhan right before the shooting. While others claimed that they saw the same woman and another man running through the hotel after the shooting.

The two were said to be laughing and shouting, “We shot him, we shot him!” The woman’s identity has never been discovered.

The podcast also plans to explore how many bullets were actually fired that night. Sirhan’s gun could only fire eight bullets, but new audio analysis and photographs taken by LAPD officers at the scene suggest that more shots were fired.


The co-hosts will also look into wooden door frames that were booked into police evidence. These would have helped answer the question of how many bullets were fired.

However, six years later when those questions were raised, police admitted that they had destroyed the door frames in June 1969. They claimed the reason for this was the lack of storage space to keep them.

One of Kennedy’s sons, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., expressed doubts about the official version of the crime. After visiting Sirhan at Donovan Correctional Facility in California last year, he called for a new investigation into his father’s assassination.
