Barry Jordan, Manslaughter Suspect Who Ranted About Jesus and Satan Before Blaming Toyota for Deadly Wreck, Pleads Not Guilty

Categories: Judge and Jury
Barry Jordan says Toyota's to blame for the death of an 11-year-old girl.
The Scottsdale man whose erratic driving is alleged to be responsible for the death of an 11-year-old girl, and who ranted and raved about Jesus and Satan following the wreck, was in Maricopa County Superior Court this morning, where he pleaded not guilty to manslaughter.

At his initial court appearance, 46-year-old Barry Thomas Jordan told the judge he needed to speak with a "Toyota expert" about the gas pedal on the 2007 pickup truck he allegedly plowed into a 1999 Honda carrying the victims last month.

"Toyota told me that there was no reason to bring the vehicle in, and I think there may be a problem,"Jordan told the judge in his initial appearance.Court records obtained by New Times suggest that the problem was more with Jordan's erratic driving than with the vehicle itself.

About 9:30 a.m. on February 19, Jordan was seen running several red lights while driving through both Scottsdale and Phoenix while hauling a fully loaded cargo trailer behind his truck.

If there had been a problem with the gas pedal, there's a simple solution: put it in neutral.

Jordan, however, didn't do that. He continued to blow through red lights and drive into opposing traffic lanes.

When he got to the intersection of East Cactus Road and Paradise Village Parkway, he collided with the Honda driven by the victims.

One victim was rushed to the hospital with bleeding to the brain and broken ribs, while another suffered a head injury after getting ejected from the vehicle. The 11-year-old girl was pronounced dead at the scene.

Following the wreck, Jordan's car came to an uncontrolled stop after driving over a raised concrete median. Jordan jumped from the car and began "yelling about Jesus and Satan," before running into a nearby parking lot.

Once in the parking lot, Jordan grabbed a woman before he was detained by a male passerby.

Jordan's been charged with one count of manslaughter for the death of the girl, two counts of aggravated assault, and two counts of endangerment.

Jordan's scheduled back in court on Friday.

Heres the deal on Barry Jordan. I use to work for him in 2003 and rented a guest house from him. He often used the expression " Moisty " whenever we were on the way to a job. It later came to me that each time he said that , he was looking at a little girl. When confronted he planted drugs in the guest house I was renting from him and called Scottsdale police. Before moving out, I had found video cameras in the celing fan. This guy is where he belongs.


another Arizona hood and criminal with a red dot on his head. he must be part of the red dot criminal cult of Arizona. this dirty dusty hot ass hell hole desert has more hoods with red dots on their face or heads than anywhere on earth besides India. why is that? is it skin cancer from to much desert sun?

Has this guy ever publicly expressed any remorse about the victims? I haven't seen any indication that he worries about anyone but himself...

most humans dont care about anyone but themselves. if you think they do your living in a fantasy dream world Tommy. nobody really cares about anyone but themselves. but they wont ever admit it. dont believe me? ask any homeless person on the mean streets or any prison inmate if any one cares about them. they will sadly say no.when you got a home a job a car etc you got pals. when you lose all that you got no pals. moral of the story? no one knows you when your down and out. and old blues song lyric.

Your that fucking little idiot who posts under numerous monikers. Speak for yourself, douchebag. Actually, most humans do care about others, especially their own family, loved ones and friends. Not sure wtf happened to you as a kid. Mommy & Daddy didn't loved you enough?

But yeah, I wouldn't care about mindless caricatures like yourself. I'd would rather save a decent human being over careless nimrods like you.
