Dyslexic Hit Man?
If this had happened on The Sopranos, everyone would be laughing about it over the water cooler on Monday morning. The fact that there is a dead man out there and a family in mourning makes this stupidity all the more horrifying.
- A new theory in last month's slaying of a suburban plumbing company owner took shape Friday. It now looks like a mob hit with a tragic twist.
- The Chicago Crime Commission suspects the hit man went to the wrong house and killed an innocent man.
As one of our commentators pointed out in a previous post, this seems to be the difference in the plumbing contractor living at something like 623 and the previously convicted mobbed up individual living over at 632. And trust the lawyer of the Outfit guy to have a dumb comment:
- [Lawyer] Alex Salerno said there is no reason anyone would want to kill his client. He added that the botched hit theory is ridiculous. Salerno says he's defended people in a number of murder cases and finds it unlikely that a professional hit man would make such a dumb mistake.
Wow, a lawyer says it's "unlikely." It's also unlikely that a plumbing contractor with no enemies would be shotgunned to death in his own driveway after arguing with a man in a ski mask. The poor guy was probably saying, "Salvatore Cautadello? Who's that?"
