He refused to talk to anyone in the media despite being a seriously demented creep he had made a lot of friends in the KC area and many had a hard time initially believing commit such crimes the media was talking about someone as far as theorized into police were framing. Bob You know he was a civic role model. Not a psycho killer. His support group initially was actually pretty strong. But you know more and more evidence came forward. Eventually the truth came out and no one will be left standing by his side on July twenty third less than four months after being arrested. Bob Admitted to the murder of Larry. Pearson was quick to plead guilty. Some say the Casey PD intimidated him with harsh tactics while in jail Based on what we know about him. I hope that happened but I don't think it did happen. I would love to think. They beat a confession out of him. the court was surprised by the ease of the confession asked if he would confess under oath he did without hesitation. He told the court he had placed a plastic bag over Pearson's head and suffocated him with the rope. Did you perform this act intentionally? The judge asked him yes he answered and with that answer.

Bob was sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility parole for the first degree murder of Larry Pearson. He would plead guilty again. The next month and a hearing pertaining to the charges of four sodomy against Chris Bryson earning him another lifetime without parole despite his initial two guilty pleas in September he pled not guilty to the five remaining murder charges something. He pled guilty because he was very worried about the death penalty which he knew prosecutors prosecutors wanted for him his attorney requested plea bargain. He pled. He'd be plead guilty to the other. Five murders if and only if the death penalty would be taken off the table. The man who is so comfortable killing others while they were trapped was now terrified that he would die or be killed I guess while in captivity in December of eighty eight September nineteenth. Bob Got the plea bargain he wanted. He gave full. Confessions to five additional killings in exchange for not being put on death row the families of his victims understandably not happy. Bob Pled guilty to one more count of first degree murder into an additional four counts of second degree murder. He was also convicted on charges of torture. Murder Rape Kidnapping and more. He was sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole at the Missouri State Penitentiary in Jefferson County Missouri. Also as part of his plea deal. He was given the opportunity to explain why he did what he did. And I think part of this not thought that if people just understood his reasoning they wouldn't think he was such a bad guy they wouldn't think he was a monster they understand they get him in a gruesome recounting. He told the court how he had used captivates play toys to say his desires for three full days. He told his story to the court took over. Seven hundred pages transcribe the details of his perversions. Cruelty made for a very uncomfortable courtroom. He also told them how the film that collector had initially inspired him and how he used control of these men to feel powerful he also decoded his journal to the court. Much of it was filled with abbreviations and unintelligible descriptions. But they would learn that some of it meant. He had violated his victims with vegetables. Injected them with chemicals filled their ears with cock amongst numerous other horrifying acts. Because of all the Colt materials Zimbabwe's possession pluses a colt loving friends.

Same thing that he killed his dad he actually live four years longer than his dad did shortly before he died. He'd written a letter to his minister in prison.

Well I've had the media clamoring to get interviews with me and after I made my last please. I wanted to get at least part of my side of out. I've found it very hard to find the way to do that. In Kansas City the media has so biased my case portraying me as being nonunion and their motivation is no separate from what the way. I treated my victims. I treated them with something less than human nothing more than a play toy or play object. This is what the media has done to me.

"March Tenth Nineteen sixty-nine James Earl Ray entered a courtroom in Memphis Tennessee ray had been held. In solitary confinement since his arrest nine months earlier and that day as he stepped into a crowded courtroom he saw more people than he'd laid eyes on in months. When the judge asked Rafer his plea ray reply a bit he was guilty? The judge wasn't surprised but still needed to confirm that ray understood what he was doing on the record. The judge asked Ray if he felt he'd been coerced if he understood that he'd be sentenced based based on his plea and if he truly had killed Martin Luther King Junior raise answers were consistent he was guilty and stood by his plea by offering a guilty plea. James Earl Ray ended his trial L. before it could even begin in exchange he wouldn't face the death penalty however this also meant that prosecutors and defense couldn't offer evidence and the public would never hear the full cases for for or against Ray on the basis of race plea. The judge sentenced him to ninety nine years in prison since ray was already forty one years old. This was effectively a life sentence to this day. James Earl Ray has never undergone a full trial. This is particularly important in light of raise surprising actions three days after he offered his guilty plea on March Thirteenth Ray began to dispute the facts facts of the case that he'd already pled guilty to he announced that he wasn't kings killer he'd been set up and had pled guilty due to the bad advice of his lawyer. According to this new story while Ray was traveling in between Mexico and the U._S.. In nineteen sixty seven he'd been approached by a man named roll roll was a member of a conspiracy possibly operating under the direction of the F._B._i.. Or a white supremacist assist hate group committed to killing Dr Martin Luther King Junior according to Ray role had given him instructions that in hindsight were designed to set him up as a patsy he bought the gun on rules instruction he'd checked into Bessie Breuer's rooming house because Raul had told him to at the time of King's assassination ray had been on the other side of the city having his car repaired while the real assassin fired the rifle Rahab pled guilty to a crime he didn't commit because he wanted to avoid the death penalty and now that he'd been sentenced he was ready to tell the truth. Raise pronouncement proved divisive to some like King's widow. Oh Coretta Scott King the new story seemed utterly convincing. She remembered that king had been targeted by white supremacist groups and the F._B._i.. Throughout his life to others raise story seemed suspicious of of course he would renounce his guilty plea while facing the possibility of life in prison within weeks. Journalists and police began to investigate raise claims it proved a difficult task during his imprisonment Ray identified over twenty different individuals as the mysterious Raul including Louisiana State Trooper Raul 's gavel and Baton Rouge Deputy Herman Thompson all of the accused men were able to provide alibis for the days and Times Ray Ray claim to meet with them. Many people resolve that Sh- Rahul didn't actually exist however ray was never given a trial after his initial guilty plea the question of how strong the evidence against Tim was has been up for debate for the half century since King's death guilty or innocent ray was unwilling to spend the remainder of his life in prison he attempted to escape from brushing mountain prison in Nashville Tennessee see twice before he finally breached the walls on his third. Try On June tenth nineteen seventy seven after eight years behind bars ray led a band of six other convicts into the Prison Yard during evening recreation time the later latter they'd fashioned out of wire against the fence climbed over and escaped guards immediately spotted the inmates and opened fire. One escapee was injured but ray and five others successfully escaped for days Tennessee police searched for ray and the other convicts they used bloodhounds to sniff out the trail and by early the next week ray and all the other escapees were found and returned turned to prison raise. Only hope of getting out for good was a new trial in one thousand nine hundred seventy five a series of leaks in scandals revealed abuses of power within the F._B._i.. And C._I._A.. Including think the F._B._I.'s harassment of Dr King as public distrust of the government eroded in one thousand nine hundred seventy six the U._S. House Committee on assassinations opened an investigation into the assassinations of President John F Kennedy and Martin Luther King Junior in Nineteen seventy eight James Earl Ray testified before the house committee he repeated his story about Raul and continued to claim his own innocence after a year of hearing testimony testimony and gathering evidence the U._S.. House Committee on assassinations revealed their findings there was no evidence that Raul existed but they did find compelling evidence of a larger conspiracy to assassinate Martin Martin Luther King Junior the Committee cited raises sudden shift to political activity in nineteen sixty seven and his inexplicable trip to New Orleans the same year both of which suggested he may have been recruited into a conspiracy around at this time additionally they found that raise purchase of a gun subsequent return and purchase of a more powerful rifle was evidence that someone had advised him on which weapon to purchase most compelling of all however over the committee closely tracked raise income and spending from the day of his escape from Missouri State Penitentiary in nineteen sixty seven until his arrest in June of nineteen sixty eight during that year Rayo only reported six hundred sixty four dollars and thirty four cents in income from legitimate work but he spent roughly nine thousand dollars worth close to seventy thousand dollars today adjusting for inflation. Even the most logical explanation was that the rest of his money was earned through criminal activity and given raise relatively unsuccessful record as a petty thief and burglar it was hard to believe he made that kind of money any on his own the committee concluded that Ray was most likely involved in a larger criminal enterprise. Perhaps one that had hired him to kill Martin Luther King the committee's fines caused a stir but they weren't aren't the same thing as a retrial. Their findings had no bearing on raise prison sentence almost two decades after the House Committee released their findings ray found an unexpected ally on March twenty twenty eight thousand nine hundred ninety seven Martin Luther King Junior's youngest son Dexter King visited Ray in prison during this meeting Dexter asked ray about the assassination are just want to ask you for the record record. Did you kill my father rather amazing meeting. Here's a man who's accused of killing Martin Luther King Junior in Memphis in nineteen sixty eight sitting down with this man son and at the conclusion of the meeting Dexter Extra King is saying I believe in my family believes that this man is innocent. After this meeting Dexter King served as a champion for James Earl Ray's case the younger king was instrumental in advocating for a retrial and giving giving ray the opportunity to clear his name it shocked the civil rights community to see Dexter King advocating for the man who had confessed to killing his father in the fall of Nineteen ninety-seven Ray and his lawyer finally. Finally received a ruling that the Tennessee Criminal Court of Appeals would hear his case unfortunately raise youth spent heavily drinking had caught up with him he suffered from cirrhosis and was too sick to stand trial while his lawyer William Pepper explained the situation to the press in nineteen ninety eight.

"Kmox news. I'm bridge. Welcome to overnight America the last show of the week. Ooh. Something very specialist happening next week actually two very special things one week from today producer, Mike and myself are going to enterprise centre to see the Red Wings take on the Saint Louis blues, and we do have to figure out what type of bet we're going to put on it. But the night before Wednesday night, we're going to do something very very special. We are going to have some professionals come through our building here at camel X in those professionals are going to be able to bring their instruments in and they're going to test and they're going to see if there's any ghosts in our building who joining us now, John Lindsay who's going to be here. A week from today. John thank you for calling in. Thank you for having me. I appreciate it. And I'm a blue season ticket holder. So I will be there the next night as well. How? Now, I wanted to point out that I've started to talk to people around the building that we're doing this in. I've started to compile some of their ghost stories of things that they're convinced happened to them in this building in some of the locations they happened in. I'll give you a couple of examples. One of our news anchors. Alex bagman swears that after he came out of the bathroom heard someone following him. But when he turned around there was no one there. So there's that area we have Valerie who does our production and one of the old production rooms, she swears that in a finely cabinet. Something was agitating itself in there in it happened multiple times, but whenever they open up the drawer. Nothing was in there. Okay. In San I've seen flickering of lights here at the studio when we've talked about ghosts. It's very strange, and there's also people that swear they've heard voices. So there's a lot of people here in the building that are thinking to themselves this is necessary. So I wanted to talk to you about what we're gonna do next week. What you're gonna do. And how you even find these things with your instruments. So let's start with what you're gonna do. Absolutely. Well, the first thing we're going to do is just exactly what you're doing now. And that is find out stories we do things differently. We we actions. I definitely I guess it's a lot of people do the same thing than we do. But we just don't we do better than them. But we don't employ any kind of psychics camping like that. I've talked to some people who do this kind of thing we've been doing this a long time we've done this some places all over the country. You know from the Queen Mary two, you know, all over the place, quite a quite a few different investigations. I mentioned we've been on. We've been any network. We're actually going to be selling are on a pilot for TV's are coming up a little bit later this summer, we want to know everything possible that there is to know because we have a Leonard amount of time. No matter where we are. And we wanna be able to get into those spots where people talk about those kinds of things we have multiple pieces of equipment. We have a an eight room night-vision DVR camera system. I've got a gentleman who's really really good really fast and setting up those equipped knows cameras and. And breaking them down real quickly. We're going to get in there. Set those up we have recorders that amplify sound and and real time. So you'll be able to take a listen to that you'll be able to hear things you wouldn't normally necessarily here with, you know, your own just listening with your ear. My dad got sure. Yeah. We got full spectrum full spectrum cameras that we utilize we have we have all kinds of different. We have Mel meters things that measure temperature fluctuations, both, you know, aunt sent things like ambient room to room temperature fluctuations things like that we have multiple pieces of equipment we've been been at it for a long time. And we're going to get all those things get set up, and we'll actually do get a really hopefully, get a real good EDP session going where we get to ask some questions and see if we can get some responses, maybe we can, you know, whether it be an audio response. Whether it be something on one of our meters, engages that we we use. And the thing of it is we we really deal in what kind of things we can hopefully be able to prove or disprove. So anytime somebody gives me tells me something that's happening in this particular area. My mind is already saying, well, it could be it could be that the crew that here's a possible logical explanation. So we're going to look at all that kind of stuff. And see because it's only by weeding out the logical explanations. Right where you can really get something and say, I have no explanation. Consequently that has paranormal paranormal just means not at you mean outside the bounds of normal. So I got a text message from my wife, she wants to know if that technology could be used in her home. So I can hear her better too many times she says I don't hear. So she can you help amplify what I'm saying. So I I blame it on. She says a hearing. I don't know if that's the case, I think just wearing the headphones so long hurt my ability to hear all right? So we'll go around have you ever done this live before on air because what we're gonna do as I already talked to our engineer in we set up where I have this special technology where I'm going to be able to walk around with you. Well, we're doing these tests in the building broadcasting it live while we're looking for these things great great never done that before live on air. We've never done exactly like that on certain on a radio. So that'll be a little bit different for us. Now, the idea that we are filming far on our own show kind of is a little bit some of that, obviously, it's it's taped. But it has a lot of interaction. So I don't know what your plans are if you if you you maybe have. I'd love to take call if China again, I don't know what your plans are. But if people had questions about things, I would love to be able to answer that we do public investigations all across the country. But we do actually we do do a lot of work out west, and we go all over the place, and we hold public investigations quite often. We're going to be holding up. There's a public investigation, Missouri state penitentiary coming up at some point here mansion and some other places. So absolutely. We would you know, this is something we're really looking forward to doing and and looking forward to getting back, and we're very used to bringing in people who have never done it before that were very very used to. I guess we have the ability to take some calls. I'll be able to I'll have headphones in. So I'll be able to monitor the what's on here because we'll have to go to commercial break still while we're doing this. But if we take calls, you wouldn't be able to hear it. But I can at least take them in related the information to you. I guess we could try something like that. I don't know. That'd be perfect. That's that's absolutely the way. We would normally do something like that. We have done things before we with another radio station where they they did not broadcast it live. But originally that was something we had discussed, and as it turns out, they just actually came out and get one of our public investigations. I was actually here. Local we're based in Saint Louis, Missouri. I said we go across all across the country. But hopefully, hopefully, it was going to be one of these things where we're going to be one of the next big shows that pop up that you'll be able to say, hey, I these guys are right here. Locally. Do you have a website people can check out some of the things you're doing. Yeah. We're actually redoing our website where you can find us on because we have had one was at WWW dot com.

You can find us at just past team on Facebook. And and and you probably we are on Twitter and all over the place, of course, is how many people are going to be here next Wednesday. Well, we won't have a full complement of team. But that's that's fine. As it stands right now. We're looking probably my my daughter my son. My son has been doing this for many years. My daughter is actually just gotten really into it recently. And she started doing them as well as the last year a couple of years or so here, but we'll have probably looks like right now about top upside my head about five and I'm really excited because. Yeah. Yeah. We have we have about five people in here. If that's if that's if that's all right? As a right now about where I think we'll be at really excited 'cause we we really have a heck of a team. We've got people that I've been I've known for many years and people have been investigating with for many years.

He was he was arrested for this assassination. Not escaping prison. Race first conviction for criminal activity a burglary in California came in nineteen forty nine. That's a good almost twenty years before these assoiation in nineteen fifty two he served two years for the armed robbery armed robbery that would imply that he had a gun of a taxi driver in Illinois in nineteen fifty five Ray was convicted of mail fraud after stealing money orders in Hannibal, Missouri. Within forging them to take a trip to Florida. He served four years in Leavenworth penitentiary in nineteen fifty nine he was caught stealing a hundred and twenty bucks in an armed robbery armed robbery in a Saint Louis grocery store that would imply he had a gun. Once again, Ray was since to twenty years in prison for repeated offenses, he escaped from the Missouri. State penitentiary in nineteen sixty seven by hiding in a truck transporting bread from. Isn bakery. Now, you can say that that maybe, you know, maybe the guards are whoever was transporting that bread. Maybe they're stupid as well, perhaps perhaps. But the fact that he escaped from prison in nineteen sixty seven that tells me, he's not just as lovable oaf, and the fact that he was committing armed robbery over and over again tells me that he's not just some innocent, dude. Who's now a Patsy? So give me a frigging break. He was also born. No. He was also born in Tennessee. That's where he died. He was born in Alton Illinois in nineteen twenty eight. So the idea that he might have been racist is not out of the question. Give me a free king Barack. But by all means carry on over the course of his investigations pepper claims to uncover a bass conspiracy that ended king's life in order to silence. His Disney voice. They took him from us.

"missouri state penitentiary" Discussed on Conspiracy Theories
"The bureau distributed the tape among government agencies with one copy even making its way to the Oval Office. The second tactic was typewritten letter delivered to king's home. The note was anonymous and seemingly written in the voice of disgruntled black man in reality. It was written and sent by the F B I, and it was opened and read by king's wife Kereta, Scott King the letter amounted to little more than a threat it warned quote king. There is only one thing left for you to do. You know, what it is? You are done there is but one way out for you, you better take it before your filthy. Abnormal fraudulent self is bared to the nation. And quote this threat came directly from j Edgar Hoover's FBI attempting to blackmail, Dr king into taking his own life, the vitality and promise of. The early sixties was giving way to something darker, something deadlier and Martin Luther King's friends would soon be outnumbered by his enemies. In April, nineteen sixty seven Martin Luther King was weighing the most difficult speech of his career. He had decided to denounce the war in Vietnam. The conflict in southeast Asia had become a flash point for the generational divide of the late. Sixties antiwar sentiment was rampant in young activists in the official stance of the government. That victory was in reach seemed increasingly implausible by spring, nineteen sixty seven the death toll had surpassed ten thousand the political capital Lyndon Johnson spent passing the Civil Rights Act was sorely needed by then he had essentially staked his presidency on winning the war isolated and unpopular Johnson turn to an old ally for support. But Dr king could not give it in fact, he turned down to meetings with Johnson in the Oval Office. He knew what he would hear. Sit down and don't speak up even his closest colleagues were warning him against speaking on the Vietnam war. They argued their movement must be distinct from the antiwar movement that they were separate causes which required separate leaders. King wasn't convinced true. He was no expert in international politics, but the Americans being shipped overseas were disproportionately black how could he fight for equality at home? If black men were being used as cannon fodder on April fourth nineteen sixty seven at the riverside church in Manhattan king took the plunge. He said, quote, I knew that I could never again, raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed. In the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today, my own government, and quote, the blowback was swift and fierce the New York Times, the Washington. Post life magazine and others. Ran long editorials chastising the Reverend stopping just short of calling him a traitor to his cause the attacks. Not only blindsided king, the emboldened his enemies, the civil rights movement was a large tant and not everyone inside agreed with Martin Luther King junior for the first time. There were whispers about a change in leadership on April twenty third nineteen sixty seven a few weeks after Dr king's controversial speech. There was a prison break at the Missouri state penitentiary it didn't make the nightly news the state offered a meager fifty dollar award for the escape inmate. The man in question didn't seem to matter to anyone. His name was James Earl Ray, he was thirty eight when he escaped this had not been his first stint behind bars, but it had been his longest the Ray family had a reputation as something of.
