As if I wasn't already chasing a multitude of leads, last night someone gave me something else to think about. First let me say that a lot of people believe that Lloyd Cork was hired to do what he did. Primarily because Booker was notorious for kicking people out of his club if they were acting up or simply didn't have the money to buy anything. This simple fact was common knowledge. The idea that he would go in there, act up, and get kicked out smells fishy to a lot of Greenwood locals.
I've been told a few ideas about who may have hired Cork to do it and why. I've also been given another idea about why would Cork himself would be motivated to commit murder and maybe he thought that getting thrown out (Booker hit him with the butt of his gun) would provide him with some sort of defense.
Last night I was presented with another idea. A few days (either two or three) before Booker was shot, something terrible happened in a small town not too far from Greenwood. Booker's half brother committed a triple homicide. He killed a prominent business owner, his daughter and his his sister. Booker's half brother was on the run when Booker was shot. Last night, someone who lived in Greenwood then and continues to live there now, someone who was very, very close to Booker - told me that they always thought that Cork was hired to murder Booker as revenge for the triple homicide committed by Booker's half-brother.
I guess I have one more question to ask Cork when I sit across from him in a week and a half.
