They Slew the Dreamer but the Dream Lives On

LOS ANGELES - s4story -- A single bullet silenced the voice, but not the dream, of Martin Luther King Jr. on April 4, 1968. Whether or not James Earl Ray pulled the trigger — and why — has been the subject of speculation for more than five decades.

In 1977, 27-year-old special investigator Gary Revel, in association with the House Select Committee on Assassinations, launched his own search for the unvarnished truth about King's assassination.

Danger, intrigue and murder followed. Revel's journey took him into Brushy Mountain Prison, where he met and became a personal confidant to the accused assassin, James Earl Ray. From there, Revel followed the clues wherever they led, including Memphis, Tennessee; New Orleans, Louisiana; Miami, Florida; and other undisclosed locations. Along the way, Revel had to navigate chaotic twists and turns as he uncovered information pointing to what he refers to as "the conspiracy and the involvement of organized crime and the U.S. government." Revel also lost three people close to him to murder.

The captivating story of Revel's investigation and what he unearthed is now being developed into a feature motion picture, They Slew the Dreamer: MLK-The Gary Revel Story. Revel's quest for the truth also became the inspiration for the song, "They Slew the Dreamer," and is introduced in his book, To Live or Maybe Not.
