Maybe just given the date too many are trying to access the site, but I was unable to get the other photos to load. I'd appreciate if anyone spots one of significance to the events of the shooting to post them.

Hi Peter,

Try this link instead:

The man to Sirhan's right is George Plimpton. I assume the fellow on his left is Karl Uecker.

Plimpton is often overlooked in descriptions of the event.

"Uecker pinned Sirhan against the steam table, stopping his forward motion.

Sirhan then pulled his revolver from his pants and opened fire, drawing the attention of nearly everyone in the pantry."

He also wrote:

"Simply speaking, I believe that the kinetic movement of the crowd trapped Kennedy against a steam table, which was bolted to the floor, as Sirhan, just inches away on the side of that same steam table, fired his weapon at him. Consistent with this, the last person to shake Kennedy's hand remembered seeing the senator lose his balance--while another eyewitness remembered seeing him "jerk a little bit, like backwards and then forwards."

In this photo, we see Plimpton and Uecker pinning Sirhan against the steam table. The end of the gun barrel is visible.

RFK is lying on the floor .... but where in relation to this photo?

Here is a link to the pdf version of the May-June 2008 issue of the Los Angeles Firefighters newsletter. LAFD photographer Harold Burba

is directly in the line of fire "while the gun is being taken from Sirhan's grip."

Excellent "pdf" shows the location of various people in the pantry. The pdf can be found at

http://www.sirhansresearcher.com/Diagram%2...0Researcher.pdf

Grid prepared by Rose Lynn Magnan.

Kennedy would be lying on floor to the left of Uecker (to the west).

The pdf is one of the pages at the website, http://www.sirhansresearcher.com/ .
