Jordan Sr. while returning home from a funeral in a distinctive new Lexus car pulled over to take a nap when Daniel Andre Green and Larry Martin Demery spotted the car. They shot Jordan to death while he slept in his car, then stole the vehicle. Green and Demery claimed they only realized that Jordan Sr. was the father of Michael Jordan after going through items in the car and stole what they found including two NBA championship rings given to Jordan Sr. by his son. Calls carelessly made from Jordan's cell phone resulted in their immediately capture. Their cover story was that they had planned only to tie up their victim and that Green pulled the trigger for no reason, which implies their true reason was they knew their target and had had planned to murder him. Both were convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for this and other violent crimes The victim's body was only found on August 3 in a swamp in Bennettsville, South Carolina, and because it was extremely decomposed, it was not positively identified until August 13 with the help of dental records.
