Many Are Convinced John Jones Was the One Who Killed Garrett Phillips


HBO's murder mystery summer kicked off with the Michelle Carter documentary, I Love You, Now Die, and recently aired Who Killed Garrett Phillips, a chilling doc about the brutal murder of 12-year-old Garrett J. Phillips in Potsdam, NY.

Following the October 24, 2011 murder, police quickly zeroed in on Oral "Nick" Hillary, one of the only black men in the small predominantly white upstate New York community. 

But the documentary might leave you feeling like racial profiling and police intimidation left Hillary as a victim in this ordeal — after all, there was no DNA or anything to tie him directly to the crime. 

So if he didn't, did Sheriff John Jones kill Garrett Phillips?
