Allard K. Lowenstein was a US politician supportive of a reinvestigation of the RFK Assassination. He was murdered on March 14, 1980.


"Lowenstein was one of the most vocal critics of the unwillingness of Los Angeles and Federal authorities to reopen the investigation into the June 6, 1968 assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy. Lowenstein’s one hour appearance on the PBS television show Firing Line in 1975... was one of the first times the American public were shown that many elements of ballistic and forensic evidence were radically at odds with eyewitness testimony and the assumption that Sirhan Sirhan alone had shot Senator Kennedy."[1]


Lowenstein was murdered in his Manhattan office on March 14, 1980. The perpetrator was judge to be a "lone nut", Dennis Sweeney.[1]
