November 5th, 1986. Port Huron, Michigan. College student Scott Macklem was murdered in broad daylight in the parking lot of his school. His fiancee immediately directed the police to her ex-boyfriend, “John Lamar,” who was really Frederick Freeman. Without considering any other suspects, Freeman was arrested and convicted of murder. Frederick Freeman, now Temujin Kensu, swears he is innocent. The prosecution claimed Temujin was a deadly ninja assassin who chartered a private plane to get revenge on the man who stole his girlfriend. Was this true? Join us as we discuss this bizarre case that continues to be challenged to this day.
