Stephen Colbert Author Interview: Hampton Sides On The Hunt For Martin Luther King's Killer (VIDEO)

Hampton Sides, the author of the new book "Hellhound on His Trail," spoke to Stephen Colbert last night about the hunt for James Earl Ray, the man who killed Martin Luther King Jr. Ray was an escape artist who had escaped from jail on two occasions, and was on the loose when he killed King. Ray had a number of aliases, Sides said, though he was finally caught when, while going by Ramon Snade, he asked to talk to his brother, Jerry Ray.
