A nearly unidentifiable body is found in the middle of a South Carolina swamp with a gunshot wound to the chest. For three weeks, no one knows the identity of the John Doe. More than sixty miles away in North Carolina, a stripped and vandalized Lexus sports car turns up in the woods. Then the news that shocks the world. That’s Michael Jordan’s car and the dead man is identified as James R Jordan Sr, Michael Jordan’s dad. Days later, authorities say they have their accomplice--Larry Demery--and their killer: Daniel Andre Green. Problem is, Daniel says he didn’t do it.
In this episode: the crime, why James Jordan wasn’t reported missing by his family for three weeks and the role celebrity played in how the murder was investigated.
