Happening more than 20 years ago, prosecutors filed an indictment against Jay Bryant, 49, who was seen entering Jam Master Jay's studio the night of his death and traces of his DNA were found at the scene.

Back in 2020, Ronald Washington and Karl Jordan Jr., were the first two suspects arrested in this case.

According to prosecutors, all three men were seen entering the building before the murder and fleeing after. They believe his death may have been a drug deal gone wrong.
