After shooting President on Nov. 22, 1963, Lee Harvey Oswald was at large for about an hour and 15 minutes before he was arrested and placed in police custody. Things went far less quickly when it came to apprehending perhaps the second most famous assassin of the 1960s: James Earl Ray. After he shot and killed Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at a Memphis motel 50 years ago today, Ray sparked a manhunt that would last more than two months and span five countries before he was finally detained at London’s Heathrow Airport.
But, believe it or not, Ray wasn’t done fleeing the law. Eight years after he was convicted of killing King, Ray escaped from Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary inin 1977. And, for a breathtaking 54 hours, America’s most famous living assassin was a free man.

The murder of. touched off rioting in cities across the United States. “King’s death is a very traumatic, very dispiriting, very destructive event in the history of Black America,” says David J. Garrow, the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Bearing the Cross. Ray, who later pleaded guilty to the crime, shot the beloved civil rights leader with a rifle through the window of a neighboring flophouse. He was, says Garrow, a white racist and ex-con who believed that he would be financially rewarded for the historic killing.
After the two-month manhunt ended with his capture, Ray, 40, was sentenced to a 99-year prison term and later incarcerated at Brushy Mountain, a fortresslike maximum securitynestled in the Walden Ridge mountains in east Tennessee. Ray had spent nearly half his life behind bars and had escaped from a Missouri prison not long before murdering King. And it did not take the seasoned convict long to attempt to flee Brushy Mountain.
Release of cold-blooded cop killer blocked, union officials say
The release of a cold-blooded killer who gunned down two New York City police officers nearly half a century ago was put on hold, union officials said Thursday. The Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association filed a lawsuit challenging the parole board’s decision to grant Herman Bell’s release, the New York Post reported. He was granted parole last month.The union filed the lawsuit on the behalf of Diane Piagentini – whose husband was murdered by Bell and his associates in 1971. The union was also granted a temporary restraining order, which prevents Bells release should the suit not fall the union’s way, the Post reported.

In May 1971, Ray left a dummy in his cell bed, broke some fan blades and crawled through a ventilation shaft. He ended up in a piping-hot steam tunnel, and when he had to exit it, he found prison guards waiting for him. The following year he made another failed escape attempt. “He’s the kind [of prisoner] I call a rabbit,” Brushy Mountain warden Stonney Lane later told a reporter. “We have several like him. If they get a chance, they’re going to run.” Or, as Ray himself admitted in a May 29, 1977, interview, “I’m interested in getting out. … They wouldn’t have me in a maximum security prison if I wasn’t interested in getting out.”
And, sure enough, 12 days later he was out.
Around 8 p.m. on the evening of June 10, Ray and two fellow inmates hooked a makeshift ladder they had built from pipe to the northeast corner of the prison wall and climbed to freedom. Several other inmates started a fight during a prison yard ball game to distract the guards while the trio made their escape. Four other inmates who had not played a part in the escape plan also climbed up the ladder. Three made it while the fourth was shot escaping.

Manhunt continues for two convicted murderers who escaped from the Clinton Correctional Facility near the Canadian border.
The six inmates still at large, which included Ray and three other convicted murderers, stole out into the dark, rugged mountains. Soon, 125 correctional officers with prison bloodhounds were hot on the fugitives’ trail. “He’s in those woods, and we’ll find him. I’m confident of that,” Warden Lane told reporters. “My guards know the area.” The Brushy Mountain officers lived, hunted and fished in those mountains. “Brushy officers have been doing this job for years,” Lane later wrote in his book Building Time at Brushy. “Their ancestors had chased convicts through these mountains for 80 years.”
It seemed it would take a miracle for Ray and the other escapees to outrun their pursuers. But, as the übervillain Hans Gruber famously quipped in Die Hard, “You asked for miracles … I give you the FBI.” Soon, close to 60 FBI agents descended on Brushy Mountain and took control of the manhunt — and slowed it down, according to Lane. Hours passed and then days, as the media and some in the FBI speculated that Ray could be miles away, or even in South America.
Finally, more than two days later, Brushy officers, acting on a tip from a local, found Ray hiding under a pile of leaves less than 10 miles from the prison. He was covered in mud and had a map and close to $300 on him. The other escapees were apprehended as well. “We could have had him in one day if [the FBI] would have left us alone,” one Brushy officer told the Nashville Scene.
Ray was returned to Brushy Mountain. “How were you sure where Ray was?” a New York Times reporter asked the warden. “It made no sense … for him to escape into those woods unless he had a way to get out of them.”
“Well,” said Lane in his thick east Tennessee accent, “none of the inmates are in here for using good judgment.”
