Description

This investigation presents compelling evidence that James Earl Ray did not act alone in assassinating Martin Luther King, Jr. The story contains an interview with Lloyd Jowers, the proprietor of a restaurant below the rooming house where Ray stayed on April 4, 1968, and where the government maintains he fired the shot that killed King. According to Jowers, a now-deceased Memphis businessman, Frank Liberto, asked Jowers to hire someone to kill King. Jowers says he found a killer, who fired from the bushes across the street from the Lorraine Hotel. Dexter King, MLK's son, says that he does not think Ray killed his father.
