This never before seen document is historically significant as it shows that Sirhan’s detailed description of his day at the Ambassador Hotel contradicts the defense team’s argument that the assassination was an impulsive act of a mentally disturbed man who suffered from amnesia or was hypnotized and thus would be unable to recall what happened.
Sirhan records the events at the Ambassador Hotel prior to shooting Senator Kennedy in four pages of handwritten notes. In astonishing detail, he recounts the various people that he encounters on a hand-drawn intricate floor plan of the Ambassador’s Hotel’s ballroom. Sirhan places numbers on various rooms on the map, which refer to footnotes on the ensuing three pages, describing what he sees as he heads towards the fateful confrontation that would shock the world.
Nate D. Sanders is also auctioning three other Sirhan Sirhan documents.
They include Sirhan’s handwritten note in which he proposes strategies to his defense team on how he could fight the murder sentence, including a scenario of blackmailing President Lyndon Johnson, a handwritten alibi claiming that he was at a shooting range the day of the assassination and his trial jottings.
The auction ends Tuesday, April 12, 2011 at 5 pm Pacific Daylight Savings Time.
