The Girl in the Polka Dot Dress

Recommended Posts

FYI / FWIW,

Today (10/29/2016), I saw this ABC footage of the aftermath of the RFK assassination, which I had not seen before.
53 minutes into the video, there's a live interview with a girl who is wearing a dress with dots all over it. I'm wondering if this could be the famous "Girl in the Polka-Dot Dress"?....



P.S. / ADDENDUM --- In another part of the above video, I felt quite embarrassed for ABC anchorman Howard K. Smith, who kept insisting that the gunshots fired by the assassin were fired over a 60-second timespan, which is ludicrous, of course, given the eyewitness reports that had already been aired by the time Smith erroneously kept telling his viewers that three of the gunshots (60 seconds apart!) could be heard on the ABC videotape. That gaffe must have been embarrassing for Smith in later years.
