48 Hours: The Top True Crime Cases On Television

Death Wish

Kenneth Minor was convicted of the 2009 murder of motivational speaker Jeffrey Locker. In this 48 Hours episode, Minor talks about Locker, the murder, his role in what happened to the famous motivational speaker, and the $18 million life insurance policy that Locker had on himself.

Kenneth Minor asserts that Jeffrey Locker had hired him to kill him so that Locker’s family would get the big life insurance pay out. The problem is that not everyone agrees, especially investigators, that any kill for hire agreement ever took place between the two men. Minor is sentenced to 20 years to life in prison.
