Nearly five years after the murder of 17-year-old Jordan Davis his killer, Michael Dunn, is telling Action News Jax why he deserves to be released.
Dunn killed Jordan at a Southside gas station in 2012. The teen and his friends had stopped for gum, an argument started over loud music and ended in gunfire.
After two trials, Dunn was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for murder. His location was kept secret until we uncovered he's being housed in an Oregon prison.
In a letter to Action News Jax reporter Bridgette Matter, he talks a lot about the evidence, claiming "Math, science, and self defense law" and "simple geometry" should exonerate him.
Dunn has reopened his case, representing himself requesting a new trial and counsel. We showed the letter to Jordan Davis' father Ron Davis.
"I felt like he was very unemotional. It was about the law, it was about his perception of the law," Davis said.
Five years later, Davis said the letter proves Dunn still has no remorse.
Dunn wrote, "The public and therefore the jury were not interested in facts, they were only interested in emotion, blame, anger and fear, not facts. Apparently, in a battle between science and spectacle, spectacle wins."
He goes on to say, "The prosecution's false narrative is that I shot and killed this young man because I was angry with him for playing music loudly."
