Don Aronow was a family man who moved to Miami in the ’60s after making a fortune in New Jersey construction, but soon his focus turned to building and racing cigarette boats. He became world famous, selling boats and fostering close relationships with some of the most powerful men in the world.

Aronow’s tale would end in a hail of bullets, leaving questions that still haven’t been answered.

The unique element in the Delta Chi case: the fraternity members captured the evening’s events on videotape and the footage was made available to the public. Even more compelling, reasonable people who watch it disagree about whether or not the sexual activity is consensual or not.
Now, as David Cypkin memorably quipped during one of the many loud disagreements we had during the edit: Welcome to the argument.
