    INDIAN RIVER COUNTY</B> — In the spring of 1968 in Vero Beach, it was common for milkmen to deliver fresh milk in glass bottles to your front porch, or for Fuller Brush salesmen to ply their trade at your door.
    Only 38,000 people lived in the county then, State Road 60 was a dirt road and people flocked to the windows of Matthews TV shop downtown to witness the advent of a modern marvel — color television.
    It also was a time of unrest across the nation. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was slain by a sniper April 4, 1968, triggering arson fires, looting and fighting in predominantly black Gifford, according to Press Journal accounts.
    It was in that era Hiram Ross Grayam drove his milk truck for Borden Milk Co. His customers said he was an amiable man who might chip in out of his own pocket if you couldn't pay the whole week's milk bill.

    Obviously, nothing can change the past, but it would be wonderful if this senseless murder could be solved even at this late date.

    What was Gifford race makeup back in 68? The route he was taking. Was it a black area, white area or mixed?
    Anyone know?
