Thane Eugene Cesar was an armed security guard believed by some commentators (including Mark Gorton) to have been the real shooter in the RFK assassination.[1]

Career

Cesar was hired as a part-time security guard just a few months before getting called up at the last minute to personally escort Kennedy.[2] Lisa Pease, who researched A Lie Too Big to Fail about the RFK Assassination, writes that Cesar had previously worked for Robert A. Maheu in Los Angeles.[3]
