Yep, if they are smart! But most criminals aren't.
Looks like payback as opposed to a couple of hoods looking for easy cash. apparently nothing was stolen.....
Homicide detectives have confirmed the Shermans were targeted, strangled, then held upright by leather belts looped around a railing of their home’s indoor pool.
A lot of stupid criminals get into it too.
The funniest one that I remember is from about 25 years ago. It seems that a store selling leather jackets in a Winnipeg mall had one of those flimsy rod and link cheapo side sliding grilles on the entrance. After closing, some young native kid (they had it on security camera footage) unhooked a leather jacket on the wall with a ten dollar telescoping fishing pole, dragged it to the entrance and made off with it.
Guess what? He did it again the next night. ... and the next, each episode carefully recorded by CCTV. The store security people eventually sensed that a pattern was emerging and they dug deep into their change purse and bought a better storefront grille.
Sometimes, the crook is by far the smarter party.
And that's why this was most likely not done by a couple of hoods. Go to all of that trouble and not take anything?They were awefully bloody careful for a "couple of hoods".
Smart criminals get into politics which in my estimation is the best place to practice and cultivate really good crime.
