The 1974 Assassination of Martin Luther King's Mother
By Johnny Peepers
Many are aware of the U.S. Government-directed conspiracy to assassinate Martin Luther King Jr. The James Earl Ray lone-nut killer narrative has been thoroughly rebutted, most notably in the 1999 wrongful death lawsuit brought by the King family against Loyd Jowers. In their verdict, the jury found that “governmental agencies were party to the conspiracy” to murder MLK Jr. Less known is that his mother likely suffered a similar violent fate at the hands of a MKULTRA mind-controlled assassin.
Alberta King was shot and killed on June 30, 1974 by 23 year-old Marcus Wayne Chenault as she sat at the organ of the Ebenezer Baptist Church during a Sunday service. He wounded three people, two of them —Mrs. King and Deacon Edward Boykin, 69—fatally. According to the New York Times, Chenault “told the police that his mission was to kill the Rev. Martin Luther King Sr., but he shot Mrs. King instead because she was close to him”.
Interestingly, Alberta King’s life was taken only a few months before James Earl Ray’s evidentiary hearing to determine whether or not he would be granted a new trial.
The FBI maintained wiretaps on the King Family and the SCLC for some time after MLK Jr.’s assassination. With mounting evidence of the government’s involvement in the killing, the guilty parties had plenty of reason to be fearful of one of MLK Jr.’s parents going public, or possibly speaking in Ray’s defense. The last thing those bastards needed was a tag team consisting of MLK Jr.’s mourning widow and his grieving mother (or father) blanketing the airwaves and exposing the FBI’s murderous COINTELPRO shenanigans.
So, who was Marcus Wayne Chenault?
The following is from this informative blog post:
Marcus “Markie” as he called was born quite different from his brothers and sisters. All of Markie’s family members were associated with the branches of U.S. Armed Services. Markie was too short and nearsighted to qualify for any type of military service.
The senior Chenault was a long term employee of the Atomic Energy Commission’s (AEC) “Mounds” laboratory in Miamisburg, Ohio, 15 miles south of Dayton. The Mounds Lab was part of the S Factor, Stanford Research Institute (SRI). Former SRI and AEC Director, CIA/MK-ULTRA Director, John Alex McCone, formed the Mounds Laboratory on approximately 360 acres in 1948. There is concrete evidence that electronic mind control was an object of extensive study, research and experimentation at SRI as exposed by the Washington Post on August 7, 1977.
Before the assassination of Mrs. King and Deacon Boykin, witnesses said that Markie went through numerous personality changes. One day he was an anti-communist. The next day he was a Christian. One day he was a Muslim then a jew, and the next day he was a homosexual. One day he was a flaming Black militant, and the next day he was very lonely and withdrawn. Someone was switching poor Markie off and no, into entirely different and distinct personalities. Markie was a real life Mr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde case. When he had been arrested, police asked Markie about a long scar on his skull. Markie had no recollection of the scar and where it had come from. Markie had undergone some type of unknown remarkable invasive brain surgery that he couldn’t recall. When asked if he killed anyone, Chenault could not remember, he responded accepting responsibility for the homicides with unbelievable glee and joy. Smiling, he said, “I assume I did, I assume I shot someone.”
During arraignment on murder charges, Chenault referred to himself in an alter personality, a “Hebrew”, and gave the name of the alter to the court as “Servant JACOB”. In court, Chenault was observed to be biting and licking his lips, and clasping his hands, repetitively. When asked about the shooting, Wayne responded, “I’m a Hebrew and was sent here on a mission and it’s partially accomplished.” Markie had been sent on a mission from some God packaged and pre-programmed to kill.
Jacob, in Hebrew, is also called Israel. In the bible, Jacob had an ongoing rivalry with his twin brother, Esau. That struggle originated in the womb, leading their mother Rebecca to seek a divine oracle from which she learned that the younger Jacob would rule over his brother. This reference is important in understanding Chenault’s programming in that alter “Servant JACOB” was programmed to rule over the mind, body, personality of Marcus Wayne Chenault.
During his sentencing to the death penalty for capital murder, Markie violently spat in the faces of his mother and father. I always wondered why until the dots were connected to John McCone, DCI of the CIA/MK ULTRA; Mounds Weapons Laboratory; and the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
The Mounds Lab was a nuclear weapons and light arms facility. The Mounds Lab had many business, partnership and personnel connections with Bechtel, Kaiser, McCone, Monsanto, and SRI. Additionally, there were some secret operations conducted at Mounds Lab by Wright Patterson Air Force base. Wright Patterson base was involved in recruiting bright young geniuses to attempt a breakthrough in Tesla technology. Wright Patterson had been the home base to some of the most ardent Operation Paperclip Nazi-SS scientist. Tesla technologies involved electric magnetic frequencies mind control that the SS was interested in perfecting and exploiting.
Markie had been linked to a group of Black mind control assassins, “The Troop”, being run out of the Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Markie and “The Troop” hit list targeted most of America’s leading Black religious and spiritual leaders straight out of COINTELPRO.
There are also some interesting tidbits in this TIME Magazine article from July 15, 1974 quoted below:
Mrs. Martin Luther King Sr., 69, wife of the pastor and mother of the slain civil rights leader, was playing. As the 500 worshipers bowed their heads for the Lord’s Prayer, Marcus Wayne Chenault, 23, opened fire with two revolvers.
“I’m tired of all this!” he screamed.
“I’m taking over!” And he sprayed bullets wildly until both guns were empty.
He wounded three people, two of them —Mrs. King and Deacon Edward Boykin, 69—fatally.
In Chenault’s Columbus apartment, police found a list of ten black churchmen and civil rights leaders, headed by Martin Luther King Sr. Not seeing him in church, Chenault may have picked King’s wife as a substitute target. (Police also intend to question Chenault about the unsolved killings of two black ministers in Dayton in the past two months.)
DREAD TIMES Found the OBIT of Marcus Wayne Chenault from the NY Times:
M. W. Chenault, 44, Gunman Who Killed Mother of Dr. King
By WOLFGANG SAXON
Published: August 22, 1995
Marcus Wayne Chenault Jr., who killed the mother of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at a Sunday service in Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta in 1974, died on Saturday at a hospital in the Atlanta suburb of Riverdale. He was 44.
Mr. Chenault was serving a life sentence at the state prison in Jackson, Ga., when he suffered a stroke on Aug. 3. He never regained consciousness, a hospital spokeswoman said.
Within weeks of the slaying of Mrs. King and a 69-year-old church deacon, Edward Boykin, on June 30, 1974, Mr. Chenault was tried, convicted and sentenced to die in the electric chair. He said he had acted out of hatred for Christianity and because his god had told him to. His lawyers said he was insane.
The sentence was upheld on appeal but he was resentenced to life in prison two months ago, partly because of the King family's strong opposition to the death penalty.
Mr. Chenault, the son of a middle-class black family in Dayton, Ohio, had just been welcomed to the church for a morning service when he rose from his seat in the front pew, drew two pistols and started firing.
Alberta King, 70, was fatally struck at the church's new organ as she was playing "The Lord's Prayer." Mr. Boykin was standing nearby when he was shot. One woman among the 400 worshippers was wounded.
At his arraignment, Mr. Chenault told a magistrate that he had come to Atlanta "on a mission," and said he decided months earlier that black ministers were a menace to black people and must be killed.
He also told the police that his mission was to kill the Rev. Martin Luther King Sr., but he shot Mrs. King instead because she was close to him. Their son Dr. King, the civil rights leader, was assassinated by an escaped convict, James Earl Ray, in Memphis on April 4, 1968.
