Original FBI Wanted Poster for James Earl Ray, the alleged assassin of Martin Luther King Jr., issued April 19, 1968, #442-A, charging Ray with "Civil Rights – Conspiracy" and "Interstate Flight – Robbery," with facsimile signature for J. Edgar Hoover. Aliases listed for Ray include Eric Starvo Galt and Harvey Lowmyer. Ray allegedly gunned down Dr. King in Memphis on April 4, 1968, then fled to Canada. On April 17, Attorney General Ramsey Clark announced that the FBI was seeking one "Eric Galt" for the murder. When fingerprints were compared with FBI records, J. Edgar Hoover announced "Galt and Ray are identical." Ray was eventually captured in London's Heathrow airport.
