Ad Pd. for by Gus Ostmeyer, Washington County FBI Agent Says Fads Don't Allow For Conspiracy Theory MEMPHIS. Tenn. (AP) -The FBI agent who directed the investigation into the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. says the facts of the case don't lend themselves to "grandiose theories" of conspiracy. "It was a relatively simple thing." Robert G. Jensen said in a telephone interview. "A ·man was killed. A man was caught. In many ways, it was like any other case, but the stature of King gave it a lot more publicity than the usual case." Robert I. Livingston, attorney for James Earl Ray, said Friday that he has been in periodic contact since March with a representative of the "men who actually carried out the slaying of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr." Ray. the only person charged in the case, pleaded guilty to murdering King, and now is serving a 99-year prison sentence. "If he (Livingston) has some thing, more power to him." said Jensen, now head of secur ity for an international mote! firm. He said he had not read Livingston's claims because there was "no particular rca son for me to read them." GO WITH FACTS "The facts that were devel oped were made public." Jen sen said. "Many people don' want to accept what the fact: are because in many instances they don't lend themselves tc grandiose theories. But we ha to go with what facts we had Theories and suppositions don 1 hold up in court." Alleging a conspiracy behinc the April 4. 1968, shooting o King in Memphis. Livingston said the Intermediary he talked to is seeking immunity from irosecution for the slaying con-1 pirators. He said they want to testify 'in revenge" against "four Southern gentlemen" who allegedly hired them, not Ray, to kill King. Livingston said eight men were involved in King's death, with Ray the "patsy." He said Ray was ".. . just a gullible- ype sort of fellow, easily in- luenced and led around. He had never been a high-powered criminal all his life, just penny || ante stuff . . ." A GOOD CASE Jensen described the Investigation as a "good case, well I worked, well handled. I'm sat- sfied with the results. 1 ' It is probably true, Jensen said, that King's slaying was one of the most thoroughly investigated murders in criminal history. "There is little.doubt that it was an extensive and in-depth investigation." he said. "It was worldwide, involving the cooperation of Canadian authorities, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Scotland Yard a n d ] many, many others. We explored every angle and the only thing is that when the case de- I veloped, we could find no evidence of such a thing (a con-|| spiracy)."
