  1. Have you heard the follow-up to this story? that the “victim” also used a false identity- that of the name of his new wife’s ex-husband, Allegedly because there was a warrant out for his arrest for back child support. Big article in the Flagler edition of the Daytona Beach News-Journal on March 11.

    No, I hadn’t heard, since that came out several days after I wrote the story. They’re all the sort of twists and turns that no one would believe in a fictional movie. The follow-up story is here. -rc

  2. I hope the hitman is going up the river, or at least that he is not a subscriber to This is True! He may have a response to the video…

  3. “…They’re all the sort of twists and turns that no one would believe in a fictional movie…”

    Fiction has to make sense.

    Reality is under no such constraint 😉

  4. Whoops! The link you gave to the follow-up story might have worked on March 16, but now it’s March 26 and that’s a dead link.

    Figures. I think it’s so dumb when papers pull their archives offline. I’m working like crazy to get mine online, because they bring me both new readers and income! Gee: I wonder why newspapers are failing, and I’m doing OK? -rc
