Dockett vividly remembers the blood on the wall and the position in which he found his mother. The case remains unsolved. There are currently no leads and no suspects for the murder of Cheryl Hambrick.

To this day, Dockett is thoroughly convinced the person responsible was someone his mother knew. Someone close to the family. He’s also convinced the killer is watching him closely, but from afar…hiding in shame.

The former Arizona Cardinals Pro Bowl defensive tackle opens up about his life before and after that horrific day. For the first time since his mother’s death, Darnell visits the house where his life trajectory so violently changed course. He searches into the ghosts of his past hoping to find the closure he so desperately seeks.
