The Waitress | Fall of a Titan

Lateral Damage

SI True Crime returns with an all new story for Season 2: Lateral Damage. It is the story of Mariet Ford, who tossed the most unlikely lateral in the most unlikely play in college football history. In 1982, Cal scored the winning touchdown on a last second, five-lateral bonanza against Stanford's team and the entire marching band. It was a moment of pure joy. Which makes the coda to it seem even darker. Fifteen years later, Mariet Ford was arrested for murdering his family. Writer S.L Price first reported on the story in 1997, but the story never ran. Now, twenty-two years later, Price is returning to the case. Season 1 was Fall of a Titan: July 4, 2009. Former NFL quarterback Steve McNair is found murdered in his Nashville condo. After just four days of investigating it was ruled a murder-suicide. But what if it wasn’t? Over the course of this nine-part series, we’ll guide you through the McNair case, reviewing the findings and re-examining crucial details in a new light.

Lateral Damage

Steve McNair is retired from football, he’s trying to find his identity and his marriage appears to be on the rocks. Then he meets Jenni Kazemi, a 19-year-old Dave & Buster’s waitress, and they strike up a fast romance. When Steve and Jenni turn up dead six months later, investigators point a finger almost immediately at Jenni. They portray her as spiraling out of control, fueled by jealousy and financial freefall. But that isn’t the Jenni friends and family knew. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
