Re: Investigation - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Dear Mr. Kowalski:
Since our telephone conversation, a conference has been held with Mr. Lloyd Jowers. The grant of immunity that you mentioned has been considered.
As you may know, Mr. Jowers has suffered both financially and reputation wise for the statements that he has made regarding the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Mr. Jowers had nothing to gain by his statements except to try to reveal what he knew about the assassination.
In view of the apparent doubt that you have that he may be telling the truth, he has asked me to advise you that he does not intend to make further comments regarding this matter. He will not permit anyone to review the video tapes that you requested.
In view of his instructions to me as his attorney, I cannot offer you anything else in this matter.
If you have any questions, please advise.
Very truly yours,
LEWIS K. GARRISON
