“Were you able to find out why this gentleman was killed sir? From all appearances, at least to us in the press, this was a working man who had no ties to anything in the underworld.”

“Yes investigation has shown us that he was not the target and that he had been a person that’s mistaken. We understand that the actual target was somebody else in that neighborhood and not him.”
