Background information and notes

  • This episode is based on the James Jordan murder. James was the father of basketball superstar Michael Jordan, and was shot in July of 1993 by teens Larry Martin Demery and Daniel Andre Green. The media initially tried to link James' death to Michael Jordan's alleged gambling problems, but James Jordan had been in the wrong place at the wrong time. His killers were both sentenced to life in prison. (Source: James R. Jordan, Sr. at Wikipedia)
