He wanted the glory.
He wanted the fame.
Just like his Mafia associates.
He had the ideas and the weaponry
But he didn’t have the brains or insight.
Let’s just say that he wasn’t the brightest star in the sky.
The copycat killer didn’t know of the potential consequences
Of what he was considering.
He researched case after case
Until he stumbled upon a case that he could copy.
He would kill a woman-killer
Figuring that this would see him painted in a more positive light.
He was wrong.
The world at large has no time or room for killers of any sort.
He never got to kill.
The Mafia saw him as a liability and dealt with him as such.
