Those high profile clients of his were/are desperate. He already squealed on a congressman and a former state governor/federal cabinet member. The writing was on the wall. If he survived to take a plea deal, the whole house of cards was going to come crashing down for them. And time was not on their side.Aye. And its looking like maybe this one won't be able to be covered up neatly.
Which makes me wonder why they were so sloppy with this assassination. Surely if you wanted to make it seem like an accident, or suicide, you could do a much better job. Poison his food. Or better yet, have some guards 'accidentally' let him loose with the other prisoners and slap a "Im a pedo" sign on his back. It would be messy and in public, but it would be easy to make it look like an accident.
Having someone go strangle him in his cell while allegedly on suicide watch and leave such obvious evidence is sloppy. It reeks of desperation.
On another note, I'm waiting to hear about 2 corrections officers found belly up in the Hudson. And maybe some witnesses too.
