It’s a cruel sociological experiment. Lock up a 13-year-old boy for a murder that he swore he didn’t commit. Release him as a 30-year-old man. Then, give him $25 million. New from WBEZ Chicago, Motive is a true crime podcast hosted by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Frank Main, with original reporting from the Chicago Sun-Times.

Eric Morro was murdered in 1993 outside a Honey Baked Ham store on Chicago's Northwest Side. Thirteen-year-old T.J. Jimenez is later charged for the killing. In this episode, we return to the neighborhood to learn more about what happened the night Morro was shot.
