    Wow. So sad there doesn't seem to be much info/posting on this case. FYI, Arrin Stoner has done an excellent video on it with great analysis and commentary. Very informative.

    It seems that LE is still categorizing this as a botched armed robbery, but hard to believe. This man came to kill. Whether or not the target was Elijah, who can say, but I can't find any evidence that suggests his intent was robbery. He seemed very intent on killing the person at the counter of the RaceTrac. In addition, the vehicle, and the man himself, show no signs of hesitation. This was planned very, very thoroughly.

    A few points from Stoner's video: It looks as if the murderer bought his entire outfit just for this purpose. It also appears that he has a walkie-talkie in his hand, and likely went back to Elijah at the suggestion of an accomplice to make sure he was dead.

    There is good analysis of the type of vehicle the murderer was driving on the video as well, as well as some other good points for discussion. For anyone interested in this case, this video is a must-watch.

    I know the podcast Classic City Crime has two episodes covering this case with information about who Elijah was as a person and personal interviews.
