LAPD pulls RFK clothing from exhibit after criticism
Sen. Robert F. Kennedy's clothes were on display in a 'high-profile homicides' exhibit
By Ashley Hayes
LOS ANGELES — After scathing criticism from the son of slain Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, police in Los Angeles, California, have apologized for including the clothes the senator was wearing when killed in an exhibit of high-profile homicide cases.
The clothing -- a shirt, tie and jacket, with what appears to be bloodstains on the shirt -- was removed from the exhibit, "Behind-The-Scenes: The LAPD Homicide Experience," at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
