I don’t feel any sympathy or sorrow for Daniel Green, but I am interested in finding out if the Robeson County Sheriff’s department botched the murder case of James Jordan many years ago?

Green, one of the men convicted of killing Michael Jordan’s father almost 30 years ago, is claiming that the Robeson County Sheriff’s Department covered up evidence in his case.
Attorneys for Daniel Andre Green submitted documents in Robeson County Superior Court on Friday that contend notes from a 1997 drug and corruption investigation into the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office further bolster their claims of law enforcement misconduct.

Green, 42, has maintained that he did not shoot James Jordan in July 1993, though his trial attorneys acknowledged that he helped dispose of the body of the father of the basketball superstar and drove his car.

Prosecutors have said that Jordan was shot and killed inside his Lexus on July 23, 1993, along the edge of U.S. 74 near Lumberton. Family and friends said they thought he had pulled over to take a nap after leaving an event in the Wilmington area.

His body was found in a South Carolina swamp a couple of weeks later. The Lexus, badly vandalized, was found abandoned two days later.

Green’s attorneys have put forth a theory that Hubert Stone, the Robeson County sheriff at the time, tried to steer the multi-agency investigation toward kidnapping and robbery and away from a drug investigation.
Green’s defense seems to be taking aim at the local's sheriff and his son, after court documents obtained by the News & Observer of Raleigh say a phone call from James Jordan’s cellphone after he was killed was made to the son of the Robeson County sheriff, who was dealing drugs at the time.
