Truman Capote and Sirhan Sirhan

Recommended Posts

Hello all. It's been around 2 years since I posted on the forum, but, like Pacino says "Just when you think you're out, they pull you back in."

Truman Capote is, supposedly, the only person to have met JFK, RFK, LHO, and Sirhan before the assassinations took place.

I say allegedly (only in the case of Sirhan), because I recall hearing several years ago that Capote used to tell people about meeting both Sirhan and Manson at the Tate/Polanski house in California. The only online references I can find for this don't mention what books he may have written this in.

In one interview he conducted with Bobby Beausoleil he mentions visiting Sirhan in prison, but nothing about meeting him at the Tate house. http://truthontatelabianca.com/threads/truman-capote-interviews-bobby-beausoleil.3551/

Does anyone have further info on this?

Thanks in advance.

John

I think one can't always take what Capote said for granted he was self aggrandizer.

Welcome back!.
