Thousands of photographs destroyed by the Los Angeles Police Department two months into the investigation of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy were duplicates, an LAPD spokesman said Friday. "They went through the stuff and got rid of superfluous photos, said Cmdr. William Booth, quoting a retired member of the department who does not want to be identified or "get involved with the press."

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Honoring Edward M. Kennedy, the crusading liberal titan who died in 2009, was sure to warm the hearts of Democrats in Charlotte. But remind delegates of how Kennedy sacked Mitt Romney in a Senate race? Hang on to the roof. Democrats roared for the late Lion of the Senate throughout a video that played in the arena on the opening night of the party's national convention, but never quite so loudly or as gleefully as when the warm tribute turned to scenes from a 1994 Kennedy-Romney battle.

The Los Angeles Police Department has apologized to the family of the late Robert F. Kennedy and removed items from a homicide exhibit in Las Vegas that included the dress shirt worn by the senator when he was assassinated in 1968, officials said Tuesday night. The shirt was among a number of items included in the highly publicized display at the 2010 California Homicide Investigators Assn. Conference, which is being hosted by the LAPD. The crime-scene evidence can be seen by the general public for the next two days.

Louis "Skip" Miller, known as one of the most hard-nosed and aggressive attorneys in Los Angeles, is often hired to defend the city and its Police Department from accusations of wrongdoing. But did he engage in wrongdoing himself--possibly tampering with a jury--in a high-profile case involving missing photos of the Robert F. Kennedy assassination?

Calls for a revival of the ideals of Robert F. Kennedy and expressions of hope that America may soon enter a more progressive political era marked a daylong conference in Los Angeles Saturday commemorating the 20th anniversary of Kennedy's last campaign. Three of Kennedy's children, numerous political associates, farm labor leader Cesar Chavez and former Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr. joined hundreds of Kennedy faithful in attending the event at Loyola-Marymount University.

I had a good chuckle over Sirhan B. Sirhan's feelings of frustration after 18 years of prison life. (Times, May 29). He was "dumbfounded," "speechless," and "shocked," that he was denied parole for another two years. Sirhan always admitted to the killing of Robert F. Kennedy and now wants to be set free to be "out of your hair." Actually, I don't mind paying taxes to cover his room and board bill at Soledad prison. He portrays himself as a victim, but he is no less a victim than the man he murdered.

A Santa Monica Superior Court jury Monday recommended that a Bakersfield farmer be awarded more than $1.1 million in damages because a tabloid newspaper identified him as the real assassin of Robert F. Kennedy. The money would go to Khalid Khawar, who was standing next to Kennedy on the night he was killed at the Ambassador Hotel in 1968. The Globe, a supermarket tabloid, printed a story in which conspiracy theorist Robert Morrow said Khawar, not Sirhan Sirhan, was the true assassin.

WASHINGTON - Democrat Joe Kennedy III won the House seat in central Massachusetts,  the newest member of the Kennedy clan headed to Washington after a hiatus without a family member in Congress for the first time in 60 years. The former county prosecutor, a graduate of Stanford University and Harvard Law School and the great-nephew of the former president, bested Sean Bielat, a Marine reservist and businessman who also earned graduate degrees at Harvard and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

A Santa Monica Superior Court judge awarded a Bakersfield farmer $1.1 million in damages Friday after ruling that a supermarket tabloid had falsely named him the true assassin of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. Judge Richard Harris ordered the Globe, which had never lost a libel suit, to pay Khalid Khawar the judgment after finding that the paper had failed in the test of whether the story was accurate and neutral.

Gregory Freeman Stone's last day began with business as usual. That morning he talked with friend and next-door neighbor Floyd Nelson about the mission that had consumed more than a decade of his life: reopening the official investigation into the 1968 assassination of Robert F. Kennedy. For many who knew him, Stone was an "unsung hero," a man attempting to "rewrite history."
