He grew up in a hazy world of conspiracy theories around his uncle and father's deaths and I think he is peculiarly susceptible to them. He is also obsessive. I have no idea if he was right or wrong about Michael Skakel - it's a strange case where it's possible that the police didn't explore all avenues - but RFK, Jr. was hung up on that case and the ensuing feud with Dominick Dunne for decades. He doesn't believe that Sirhan Sirhan was solely responsible for RFK's assassination despite a confession.

I do believe that he was permanently scarred by the atmosphere of assassination and cult conspiracy theories he grew up with. IMO, he's not entirely in touch with reality.
