This is Matt White. At the time our story begins, Matt was a 30-year-old college graduate who studied the music business. Every week, he would go to the grocery store to pick up food and general supplies.

His grocery store of choice was a Kroger located in an upper-class part of an otherwise poor area of Memphis, Tennessee. On this particular day, Matt went to the grocery store, paid for his items as usual, and started to walk towards the exit.
