Historical Facts

His name was James Earl Ray and was an escaped convict. Dr. King had been standing on the balcony of his room at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee on April 4, 1968. Ray was charged with the murder of Martin Luther King and he confessed and pleaded guilty. He then spent the rest of his life to unsuccessfully withdraw his confession.

A Contributor's Opinion

The FBI headed by J Edger Hoover, he and his fellow FBI workers tried many times to assassinate his character with lies , death treats, and exposing aspect of his personal life. They even went as far as taping his phone they also put 24 hour surveillance on him as if he was a terrorist. This is not made up do your research it is all facts. The FBI killed Martin Luther King Jr. along with many other Black leaders during the Civil Rights Movement which they consider threats to the Great way of American Life. James Earl Ray was part of a scheme he tried many times to retract is confession and if you do some research you find that from were James was and were the bullet hit Dr. King and were Dr. Kings peers were pointing at the time of the murder it doesn't add up.

The person convicted was James Earl Ray, although he maintains his innocence and many conspiracy theorists doubt that he acted alone, if at all. Among those who believe his innocence is Martin Luther King III.
James Earl Ray. It has been proven over and over again. Ray pled guilty to the murder, because he knew if he stood trial, he would be found guilty by a jury and executed. He died in prison from natural causes and was never considered innocent in the murder. Ray hated Rev. King, and murdered the pastor hoping to get rich from doing so. Ray was a racist. There is no evidence to prove Ray was innocent. There is no evidence that says anyone else killed the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Gerald Posner wrote an excellent book that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt, it was Ray and Ray alone who committed the murder of Rev. King.
