From the articles I have seen - she sustained injuries around the neck and head - more suggestive of a"beating" or assault than stray bullets.devonwoody":1adfi29v said:I know there were injuries to the older child but that might have been because of stray bullets.

Possibly - but as the press\news was reporting today, she is out of her medically induced coma. The 4yr old is back in the UK - my heart goes out to her.devonwoody":34jympx7 said:quote
Mis-informations perhaps, which I suspect there will be a lot of if Military intelligence is involved!
Would a hit man really take 20 odd rounds to kill 4-5 people and spray bullets? Probably a hit - i.e. not a random shooting (except for the poor cyclist), but far from professional. But then again - the person\persons engaging such people\etc - not like they give a toss about anything other than x, y &\or z being dead.wobblycogs":24ftk1dj said:Since they don't put you into a drug induced coma for bit of a bump on the head I think it's probably fair to assume that they were trying to kill the seven year old as well. Who ever did this clearly doesn't have a problem with killing people and really doesn't want witnesses.
I wonder if we will ever find out who actually did this? I'm not saying the authorities won't find out I'm just not sure the public ever will. It could, I suppose, be a hit man hired by a private individual but my money would be on some secret government agency. The question then is which country was it? I can't help feeling it comes down to either us (he's selling our secrets) or the Iraq (he's giving us their secrets).
Anyway, hope the kids can get over the event and have a speedy recovery. I feel sorry for the cyclist as well, what a bad case of the wrong place at the wrong time.
I haven't been keeping up much with the news generally TBH. Yes, 2 shots to the head - bit of a trademark.wobblycogs":50ss7daf said:I read yesterday that it was two shots to the head and they were likely to revise down the number of shots fired. The two to the head feels like specialist military training. I can't believe your average hit man is that thorough and it means getting a bit more up close and personal with your victim.
You are looking at this from your perspective - i.e. you wouldn't dream of doing that, but as they say round these parts - "Nowt queer as folk!"wobblycogs":50ss7daf said:The other problem with I have with it being a private hit (e.g. organised by the brother) is what would you have to do to make someone hate you that much? Even if he'd slept with his brothers wife and grabbed all the inheritance I struggle to see the brother paying to have the whole family executed.
Hit men, if you want to give such people a title, are 2 penny and the method of execution is hardly specialist, just a bit better than standard I suppose. Less than £2k will get a person who'll do such things with the current economy. Sad to be talking in such commodity based terms in this particular instance.wobblycogs":1d905ouc said:I read yesterday that it was two shots to the head and they were likely to revise down the number of shots fired.

True - talking ill of the dead does nothing for the dead, just upsets the living. Not that anyone here has done that.Noel":1q2tpip1 said:BTW people, be careful on what you write, considering it's an ongoing investigation and there's a grieving family.
