To commemorate the jury verdict exonerating James Earl Ray in 1999, CTKA presented Jim Douglass's article from Probe.
Jim DiEugenio looks at Jerry Ray's book and deems it an improvement over his brother John's similar effort, Truth at Last.
Hancock and Wexler's belief that Ray took up a bounty being offered on Dr. King's life is simply not supported by any credible evidence.

Interview given in 1977.
