Cartha “Deke” DeLoach, a former top aide to FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, died Wednesday in South Carolina at age 92, the Island Packett newspaper reported.

He was a longtime resident of Hilton Head Island.

The paper reported that he worked on the investigation into the slaying of Martin Luther King Jr. and sat next to agent Mark Felt, who in recent years became known as “Deep Throat,” the source for the Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein during Watergate.

As deputy director under Hoover, the paper reported, he called President Johnson to tell him about the bodies of three slain civil rights workers in Mississippi.

He authored the book “Hoover’s FBI: The Inside Story by Hoover’s Trusted Lieutenant” and defended Hoover’s handling of civil rights matters, the paper reported.

He was also a consultant for the 2011 Clint Eastwood film on Hoover.
