SECURITY INCREASED AFTER BREAK IN AT NATIONAL CIVIL RIGHTS MUSEUM

 

Can you tell me how in the world did this man get in the Civil Rights Museum?

 

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis has increased security after finding a broken window and a man sleeping inside.

Police say they found Dexter Anderson asleep in a bed of the motel, just a few doors down from where King was staying on the day he died. Anderson has been charged with vandalism and criminal trespass.

The main section of the newly renovated museum reopened April 5, the day after the 46th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination in Memphis. King was killed on April 4, 1968, while standing on the balcony of the old Lorraine Motel, which was later converted into the museum in downtown Memphis.
