About The Show

SI True Crime returns with an all new story for Season 2: Lateral Damage. It is the story of Mariet Ford, who tossed the most unlikely lateral in the most unlikely play in college football history. In 1982, Cal scored the winning touchdown on a last second, five-lateral bonanza against Stanford's team and the entire marching band. It was a moment of pure joy. Which makes the coda to it seem even darker. Fifteen years later, Mariet Ford was arrested for murdering his family. Writer S.L Price first reported on the story in 1997, but the story never ran. Now, twenty-two years later, Price is returning to the case. Season 1 was Fall of a Titan: July 4, 2009. Former NFL quarterback Steve McNair is found murdered in his Nashville condo. After just four days of investigating it was ruled a murder-suicide. But what if it wasn’t? Over the course of this nine-part series, we’ll guide you through the McNair case, reviewing the findings and re-examining crucial details in a new light.
