Episode 101: Alberta Jones and Leon Jordan
In 1965, the body of Alberta O. Jones was found on the banks of the Ohio River in Louisville, Kentucky. Alberta was one of the first black women to pass the bar in Kentucky, she was the first female prosecutor, and she fought for civil rights in the Jim Crow era.
Five years later, civil rights leader Leon Jordan was gunned down in front of his business in Kansas City. The cases are not connected but the similarities between them are striking. But most of all, both cases remain unsolved.
