On the morning of November 5 1986, 21-year-old Scott Macklem, a student at St. Clair Community College, was gunned down near his car in the school parking lot. Almost immediately, Temujin Kensu was homed in on as a suspect. The victim's fiancé had dated Kensu months earlier. An eyewitness also identified Kensu, who was tried and convicted of first degree murder. However, Kensu has at least 10 witnesses stating that he was 450 miles away from the murder when it took place and there is no physical evidence linking him to the crime. He was convicted through a hypnotized witness, a jailhouse informant and an unsubstantiated plane flight theory. Since his conviction, a retired officer from the same department that helped convict him has now joined his team as a PI and says the more he digs into this case, the more red flags he sees.
