Speculation About Jordan’s Murder

Family and friends are speaking out on social media regarding Jordan’s disappearance and murder. Jordan left on 3/20/2021 to return a truck to Adams. When Jordan didn’t return and continued to remain gone, even missing work, his mother stated she tried to file a missing persons report. Authorities allegedly declined to declare Jordan as a missing person because he was an adult. Further speculation floating around states that Jordan was found in a shed on the property of Adams. His body had been wrapped in plastic and hidden within the outbuilding.
