The Debtor
Darren Lumar whirled into Atlanta, married James Brown's daughter, made a lot of promises, lived in one grand home after another, and died November 6, 2008, after a cigarette-smoking hit man strolled into his garage and filled him with bullets. The killer is still loose. The police have an unusual problem with their investigation: There are too many possible suspects. By Thomas Lake
