Ray Stalked King

The committee believed Ray stalked the civil rights leader for a period of time before the murder, following King from Los Angeles to Atlanta and finally to Memphis. Ray used an alias to rent a room at a boarding house near the Lorraine Motel the day of King's murder and requested a private room with a view of the Lorraine Motel. (Photo: Birmingham News /Landov)
