25 Years Later: Daniel Green Speaks Out on the Murder of James Jordan

By Rob Stafford and Lisa Capitanini,

It was a celebrity crime that shocked Chicago and the nation in the summer of 1993. The father of the world’s most famous athlete was gunned down in what was described as a roadside robbery in North Carolina.

Now, Daniel Green, one of two then-teenagers convicted in the crime, is fighting for a new trial in the murder of James Jordan, the father of Michael Jordan, saying in filed court documents that much of the evidence used in the trial is questionable.

“I think they should look at the evidence. If you look at the evidence, the evidence is going to speak for itself – that there is no evidence that I killed James Jordan, because I didn’t,” Green said.
