History buffs, take note. The Shelby County Register's office in Tennessee has released several restored videos of James Earl Ray after his arrest for the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. No bombshells are in the mix, but one shows Ray being read his rights aboard a plane back to Memphis, notes the Huffington Post. (He was arrested in London two months after the 1968 killing.) See all the videos here, though the county office warns that quality is a little shaky because staffers were just learning how to use the equipment. (Read more Martin Luther King Jr. stories.)
