During an interview with CNN, Nina Rhodes-Hughes, a key witness to the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy at the Ambassador Hotel in 1968, said that convicted murderer Sirhan Sirhan did not act alone.
“What has to come out is that there was another shooter to my right,” said Rhodes-Hughes, she was feet away from RFK in a hotel service pantry during the shooting. ‘The truth has got to be told. No more cover-ups.”
Now 78, she says the FBI “twisted” her statements to investigators to make it appear that she said she had only heard 8 shots, an account that was used as evidence that Sirhan carried out the act alone.
With Sirhan’s legal team now revisiting the case, Rhodes-Hughes is coming forward with new information.
“I never said eight shots. I never, never said it,” she told CNN, accusing California Attorney General Kamala Harris of “parroting” the incorrect information on the original FBI report. “There were more than eight shots … There were at least 12, maybe 14. And I know there were because I heard the rhythm in my head.”
