In 1993, Michael Jordan’s father James was driving through North Carolina in a red Lexus Michael had recently bought for him. He was napping in his car when two teenagers found him, shot him, stole the car, and disposed of James’ body in a nearby swamp where it was not found until 5 weeks later. The tragic loss played a key role in Jordan’s decision to retire for the first time, although he did return to the game just 2 years later.
