Conspiracy?

Who Killed Martin Luther King Jr.?

On April 4, 1968, a sniper gunned down Martin Luther King Jr. as he

stood on a motel balcony in Memphis, Tennessee. Charges of cover-ups

and government complicity were heard almost immediately--suspicions

that haven't waned with time. Several versions have passed for the

"truth" of King's assassination--from the "official" story in '68 with

small-time criminal James Earl Ray as lone assassin; Ray's later

assertion that he was framed by "Raul", the true killer; to the '78

House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) report that claimed

Ray acted on behalf of a conspiracy. And there's a theory that federal

government agencies were out to get King--and they had greater

motivation to do so than James Earl Ray. We revisit the murder--one of

the least explicable of the assassinations that rocked the '60s.

In October 1962, the world tottered on the brink of nuclear war. The

be removed, risking the first nuclear exchange between the
