Los Angeles, CA – August 26, 2021 – MLK’s supposed assassin James Earl Ray had an attorney in 1977 by the name of Jack Kershaw. Jack was a partner and business associate of Gary Revel. Gary had done some special investigative work for Jack.
Jack asked Gary to investigate the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., in association with the House Select Committee’s on Assassination’s government mandated investigations, of the assassinations of both Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and President John F. Kennedy.
Lee Harvey Oswald and James Earl Ray are the supposed assassins… right?
“Not so!” writes acclaimed author Gary Revel in his soul searching, time proven book, TO LIVE OR MAYBE NOT and theme song, “They Slew the Dreamer” available from Amazon Books and iTunes.
Historically accurate and often an “edge of your seat, “first person, up-close account,” Revel’s work sets the record straight.
Gary’s story of the assassinations “Whodunit” is exposed in his song, They Slew the Dreamer and touched on in his book, To Live or Maybe Not, and will be fully developed and exposed in his upcoming movie that is in development. extraordinary vim and vigor, Revel’s book (and song) is compelling and unforgettable!
In Gary’s interviews he takes you backstage of the dramatic yet terrifying walls of the infamous Brushy Mountain Prison of East Tennessee, Gary walks and talks with the much written about (yet unconvincingly) scurrilous, historic scapegoat, James Earl Ray. What unfolds will both anger and frustrate you. “Why haven’t we heard this before?”
In January, 1977, Jack Kershaw, James Earl Ray’s attorney, walked over from his side of the room, (Jack and Gary shared Jack’s office) and said, “Your experience in covert investigations is going to pay off on this one.”
A month later Gary was sitting in a conference room inside the gothic looking walls of Brushy Mountain Prison, Tennessee, talking to James Earl Ray, the supposed killer of MLK.
James told his story. The real one, the one he was afraid to tell lawyers, the FBI, or anyone he thought connected to the government. Gary was operating as an undercover special investigator, although associated with the House Select Committee on Assassinations and Attorney Jack Kershaw. He was not working directly for anyone but himself.
James, whom Gary called Jimmy, and Gary both had some military experience, and both knew well the ‘Need to Know’ rules of military, intelligence departments, and mafia organizations. Gary had that advantage, and they mutually respected the conundrum at hand and they respected their quest for the truth.
Jimmy (James Earl Ray) knew he was a dead man if he told the truth to anyone who would get it back to killers, or even to those associated with them. When he became a made Mafia member, in New Orleans, by the hand of Carlos Marcello, the most important thing he learned was
‘Omerta’, the oath of secrecy.
A sign over the desk of Mob-boss Marcello spoke the truism of it. It read “3 can keep a secret if 2 are dead.”
What Gary learned, from that meeting and many other meetings, confrontations, near death experiences of himself and family members, and murder of his brother and others, was: James Earl Ray did not shoot and kill Martin Luther King Jr.
Jimmy told Gary that E. Howard Hunt ran the assassination team that killed MLK.
It was in Canada, after Jimmy’s (managed) escape from prison in Missouri, that he met Hunt and Mafia-Boss Lucien Sarti.
Sarti was the Mafia’s man in Canada. He ran the mob throughout Canada and the border of the US and Canada. The Heroin Pipeline provided much of that business. It originated in Burma, traveling down the Mekong River, through the US Military controlled, Southeast Asia, Pacific Ocean and to the coasts of the Americas. Italian organized crime families, some called Cosa Nostra, were making over $30 billion a year from the sales of the Heroin.
The Vietnam War was the perfect cover. They could not afford for anything to disturb their enterprise.
On April 4, 1967, MLK spoke against the Vietnam War, at the Riverside Church in New York. On April 4, 1968, King was shot dead on the balcony of the Lorraine, Motel in Memphis, Tennessee.
Those are the basic facts, of the investigation and principles of Gary’s story. The intrigue, danger, perplexing associations and events related to the entire matter, are all the essence of Gary’s reality.
History winces at this. The truth has been abused for so long. Many have died because they sought the same truth, he sought.
Even the House Select Committee on Assassinations, which Gary worked in association with-to some extent, concluded, there was a conspiracy in the assassination of MLK. Gary found that to be true but went further, saying “James Earl Ray was not the shooter, nor was he a knowing participant in the killing”.
TO LIVE OR MAYBE NOT, is available on Amazon Book, my song, THEY SLEW THE DREAMER, is on iTunes, Amazon Music, etc. and the movie is in development and may be in a theater near you later this year or next year (hopefully). They Slew The Dreamer: MLKThe Gary Revel Story is the movie that is in development which will finally tell the whole story of Gary’s MLK investigation.
