Successful businessman and Ecuadorian-American immigrant Nelson Serrano was in Atlanta on December 3rd, 1997, when 4 people were murdered execution stye at his Bartow, Florida factory. It is believed that the intended target was his business partner, Phil Dosso’s son Frank who worked for the business while also involved in drug trafficking. After 3 years of cooperating with an investigation that turned up no evidence linking him to the crime, Nelson retired to Ecuador. Investigators ignored statements implicating a NY druglord, and instead circumvented Ecuadorian sovereignty, kidnapping Nelson to stand trial in Florida. Focusing on a strained business partnership as Nelson’s alleged motive, the prosecution presented an absurd theory in which Nelson made an impossible round trip journey from Atlanta to Bartow supported only by false evidence to fool the jury into sending Nelson to death row where he remains to this day.
