The Internet is a great thing. Usually I can find something like this with the right search string in Google, but it did not work without the magician's name.
I looked at your profile, and about a dozen years before you were born I was in school in St. Louis. A squeaky clean businessman was blown up when he started his automobile in a restaurant parking lot. It was a mob-style hit. I went on a year long internship. When I returned to St. Louis I asked a barber if the case had ever been solved. It had not. About four years ago I began to think about it again. I did a search on Google and found the St. Louis Post-Dispatch had written an article about it maybe fifteen years ago. Someone in St. Louis absconded with quite a bit of money belonging to the New Orleans mob and two guys from the gang that cannot shoot straight were dispatched to St. Louis to settle the score. They knew they guy drove a black Lincoln, so they bombed a black Cadillac! Both perpetrators have long since died of illness and old age. But, the FBI knew immediately what had happened and who had done it. However, they could do nothing because it would have jeopardized a larger investigation.
Anyway, thanks again.
