Summary
On Sunday, August 6, 2000, fifteen-year-old Nick Markowitz was grabbed off the street on the orders of a local drug dealer named Jesse James Hollywood. Nick was taken as collateral because his brother Ben owed Jesse money. He was an innocent victim who became a pawn in an increasingly high-stakes feud between the two that ended with Nick's brutal murder. A dozen or more people saw Nick over the course of the next fifty-nine hours, but no one stepped forward to say anything. No one thought to report the crime to the police. Some of them were scared of Hollywood, while others simply didn't want to get involved. When the news of Nick's murder finally broke, they all had to confront what they'd done -- or hadn't done. As for Hollywood, he ordered the hit, but he wasn't actually there when the murder took place. And once the story came to light, he immediately disappeared and remained a fugitive on the FBI's Most Wanted List for nearly six years before his eventual capture
