Purely accidental, I'm sure. Was this assault cyanide? Ban it quick!

Well, if losing his life made him the runner-up, I'd hate to learn the fate of the winner.

Surely, the person who did this are so envious of the victim's winnings. The suspect is highly motivated by money and he should be punished for his evil action. I feel so sad for the family.

Detectives will be looking from the closest to him, on outward....the reason Homicide has the highest solve percentage, is that it is so often someone very close to the victim.....
