An interesting article at Hollywood Today, of all places, about the FBI and the Martin Luther King assassination.

After Martin Luther King’s assassination, Cartha DeLoach led the team that captured James Earl Ray, who confessed to the killing, only to recant his confession later. He was convicted of assassinating King, however, when he accepted a plea deal that spared him from the death penalty. And in 1995, Ray accused DeLoach of being involved in King’s assassination.

“Cartha DeLoach was involved in the MLK murder – prior to the shooting, DeLoach played a major role in the FBI harassment of MLK,” Ray scrawled in a handwritten note from his jail cell in 1995, three years before he died in prison.
This is from Part 3 of a 4-part series on television and the FBI. Quite interesting actually, and shows how powerful Hoover was.
