Missing man Raphael Joseph suspected of involvement in a 2002 strip club shooting
HOMICIDE detectives are investigating the disappearance of a man suspected of involvement in a shooting at a western Sydney strip club more than 10 years ago.
This seems like a made for tv movie in the making...
Believed victim now originally suspect in a murder, flees to the US, gets caught and sent back, now believed to have been kidnapped and likely murdered or being held for ransom now himself? Seriously?
And yet they also think he got in the car willingly?
Curious why they think there could be other reasons he'd possibly have been kidnapped and murdered for on top of the original...
Original article says originally known as 'Rafi Tooma'.
MSM reports the original 2002 shooting 'led to a gang war involving several other killings, kidnappings and drive-by shootings...'
Subject of manhunt is held without bail
