The "miracle" began Nov. 16, 1999, when Cherica Adams was shot four times in Charlotte, N.C. A hitman tried to murder Adams, the girlfriend of NFL star Rae Carruth, and their unborn son, Chancellor Lee. But the hitman failed. Now, a year-long investigation exposes stunning new details of the crime that shocked the sports world—and the impacts still being felt years later. Hosted by Charlotte Observer reporter Scott Fowler, who has covered this saga for 19 years.

Customer Reviews

Haunting and inspiring

What is stronger than a mother’s love? While this series initially focuses on the football star and his fall from grace, the sordid characters and their bad choices, the women of this story and Chancellor Lee are the heroes. Bravo to Scott Fowler and The Charlotte Observer for their determined, detailed and nuanced coverage of this tragedy for the past two decades. And here’s to Saundra Adams, the selfless, loving, uplifting and inspiring hero of this story. Be prepared for your heart to be broken open and healed.

Justice denied

Can’t express how much I was touched by this podcast. Saundra Adams and her grandson are an inspiration. Scott Fowler has done a fantastic job in assembling and crafting this sad tale. Athletes seem to feel they have no limits on their behavior. Chancellor Lee is a very important reminder of the damage caused by those who feel no human feelings for their offspring or those they purport to love.

Just listen - you’ll never be the same

Have you ever read or heard something so well told, so heartbreaking, and so inspiring you almost wished you hadn’t so you could experience it again for the first time ? This is that story . Masterfully told. Captivating. Every adjective & feeling you can think of.
