34 year old John Gilbride has been spending all his energy and money he does not have to fight for visitation rights with his only son Zackary. After 4 years, John finally gets awarded weekend and holiday visitation and the case gets moved from Philadelphia to New Jersey. MOVE has always declared that MOVE children cannot be with non-MOVE people and that they will not recognize any laws or court orders that go against MOVE Law. All MOVE members have been called to stay at MOVE headquarters and prepare for a possible confrontation with authorities enforcing the custody order. You will hear from people who were inside MOVE headquarters in the days just before John Gilbride's murder. If you have any information about the 2002 unsolved murder of John Gilbride or about the allegations of abuse inside the MOVE organization please reach out: email@example.com.
6 weeks before JOHN GILBRIDE is shot dead, he is awarded the unsupervised visitation with his 6 year old son Zackary that has been fought in the Family Court of Philadelphia event hough John, Alberta and Zackary all live in New Jersey. This final order by the Judge crosses a red line for John's ex-wife, the leader of MOVE (alleged to by former members to be a cult). It is said that Alberta considers the court order to be a personal defeat and a direct attack on MOVE and so under her leadership, MOVE goes into full confrontation mode and the city of Philadelphia is having a terrifying deja vu.
