It’s May 2012, and a team of Colorado police officers have descended on NBA player Chris Andersen’s home. The cops are searching for evidence of terrible crimes, and their investigation threatens to end Andersen’s career for good. Slowly, though, the truth begins to emerge – and it’s stranger than anyone could have imagined.
Born in July 1978 in Long Beach, California, Andersen relocated with his family to Texas when he was just four years old. There, Andersen, his parents and his two siblings settled in the small town of Iola, where they bought a small plot of land. And, worryingly, the young boy initially seemed destined to follow some of his peers into living on the wrong side of the law.
