According to EURweb.com, a new book by the brother of James Earl Ray, who was convicted of killing Dr. Martin Luther King, sets out to prove that Ray was not Dr. King's murderer.

TRUTH AT LAST: The Untold Story Behind James Earl Ray and the Assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. by John Larry Ray (and coauthor Lyndon Barsten), the 75-year-old brother of James Earl Ray, claims that there's forensic evidence that proves his brother did not assassinate Dr. King. The book also includes conversations between the brothers where James thinks he was being set up.

"Martin Luther King Jr. was a man admired by millions, but my brother didn't kill him," John told the New York Daily News. "I believe my brother was not only misused by conspirators within our government but also greatly misconstrued as a 'racist' and a 'murderer' by the media."
James Early Ray confessed to shooting Dr. King, but then took back his confession three days later. He died in 1998.
