Kennedy said the elder Harrelson was aware an “incident” was going to occur but was not aware that the president was about to be shot. The presidential candidate then said that several Italian mafia figures he claimed were connected to the assignation turned up dead quickly after. “There were over 30 people who were killed who were witnesses or potential witnesses,” he said. Charles Harrelson was not among the dead, but Kennedy said there are photos of him near the spot where his uncle was killed. “He was a professional hitman,” Kennedy said of the actor’s father. “He had been recruited out of the military, worked for the CIA, and then worked for the Carlos Marcello mob, and he died in maximum security prison for the murder of a federal judge.” Kennedy added, “But he was a very, very interesting character, and he confessed at one time. But then he told Woody the story, which Woody told me.” He concluded there are currently photos of Charles Harrelson at the scene of the assassination. Harrelson claimed to have killed Kennedy but retracted the statement. The elder Harrelson died at the age of 69 in a federal prison in 2007 for the 1979 assassination of Texas Judge John Wood outside of his San Antonio home. The father of the “White Men Can’t Jump” star was convicted of the murder and connected to numerous other murders in Texas. In 1994, Texas Monthly covered Charles Harrelson’s crimes and alleged crimes for a story about his son’s rise to fame. The outlet reported: “Harrelson’s connection to the JFK assassination stems from the famous photograph of the ‘three tramps,’ who were arrested near Dealey Plaza a few minutes after the shooting but were released before anyone thought to get their names. “The tall tramp looked very much like Charles Harrelson, a coincidence Harrelson has exploited.” The report added that a San Antonio attorney named Tom Sharpe later set out to prove Charles Harrelson was indeed one of the men in the photo that Robert Kennedy Jr. referred to in his Tuesday interview. Texas Monthly concluded, “But Sharpe compared the photo of the tramp taken in Dallas with one of Harrelson taken at about the same time and concluded it wasn’t the same person.” In August of this year, Woody Harrelson was seen wearing a hat supporting Robert Kennedy Jr.’s bid for the White House, USA Today reported.
