You'd think that even an amateur assassin would know to use or stolen car — or to make their escape on a bicycle.
My guess is he knew he would be caught. Probably he just didn’t want to surrender on the spot.
Yes, I agree. Perhaps I should get out my tinfoil hat, but it is odd that this murderer should himself be murdered just before an investigation is to take place. I wonder who didn’t want the gruesome info about what this man did for a living to be made public? NARAL? Planned Barrenhood?
Easier than stealing a car would be to unscrew a plate from a parked car that looked like yours.
