The Federal Bureau of Investigation's file on Coretta Scott King showed surveillance of Mrs. King continued - and intensified - after her husband's assassination, but the monitoring dwindled in 1972 after the death of J. Edgar Hoover. KHOU, a Houston television station, used FOIA to obtain the FBI file.

Notes:

NPR's Tony Cox confirmed that KHOU-TV used FOIA to obtain the documents. Cox interviewed Dr. Christine King Farris on the King family's reaction on August 31, 2007.
