Case 9

Jonathan Luna

*** Content Warning: suicide themes ***

In late 2003, the heat was on for US assistant attorney Jonathan Luna. The Baltimore based lawyer was in the middle of prosecuting a major drug trafficking trial and was facing allegations of misconduct and illegal handling of a witness. In addition to a judge ordering a federal investigation, Jonathan had also been implicated in a large sum of cash that had gone missing from a courthouse evidence vault.

So when Jonathan’s body was found stabbed and drowned in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, the FBI were adamant his death was a suicide. Authorities in Pennsylvania weren’t convinced. On the night of his death, CCTV footage had captured Jonathan on a bizarre journey through several states, while several other clues indicated foul play. Had Jonathan Luna taken his own life, or was there a killer on the loose?
