Yes. It's a message to his mother.
I think this article explains it.

Saw this this morning. Interesting. Looks like LE has their hands full. I'm not too sure I'd be looking into the music industry. I'd concentrate on possible drug connection or mortgage or financial connection.
Oh the tangled webs we weave.

Oh, I so agree
Cops said Woodard was killed with a weapon that ballistics determined was also used in a 2009 shooting in which two men riddled a St. Albans, Queens, house with bullets. No one was hit.
bbm, It appears there is a gun for hire.
Woodard was carrying two mobile phones when he died, and a third was found in his luggage.
These phone records should be interesting.

DEAD END IN CITY RUBOUT: Cops question, release person of interest in brazen execution
Woodard himself had three cell phones in his possession, one of which seems to have directed him by message right into the path of his assassin around 2 p.m. Monday.
Then there’s the connection to a gruesome killing in Queens, an ambush in which three men who had been at a Brooklyn shindig thrown by a local party planner were sprayed by 63 bullets from an AK-47 as they sat in a car. A cell phone police tracked in the Woodard killing is registered to the party planner who hosted that event, a source said.
Cops got the license plate number as the sedan went through the Midtown Tunnel shortly after Woodard’s murder.
bbm, I wonder if the plates were switched?
Investigators were still trying to determine what Woodard -- who checked into his hotel on Sunday after flying in from California on a one-way ticket -- was doing in the city.
bbm, is that normal? one way ticket to the place you visit?
They tracked down the car in Queens with “Ring of Steel” technology, said Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.
Kelly said cops used “mobile license-plate readers that move around throughout the city and what you can do is put in a plate number and scour an area, and that’s how it was found.”
The paper, citing an unnamed source, reported that investigators are searching for a low-level criminal from Queens who is believed to have been behind the wheel of the getaway car.
Police believe someone in the car pointed Woodard out to his murderer.

Pinkins says murdered Brandon Woodards name is on documents created by his mother on various loans and mortgages. She would sell properties to Brandon and then he would default on them. Pinkins says she has a mound of paperwork with McBeth and Woodards names, a complicated paper trail. The number of people they burned, and people who lost their homes, is huge. Their enemies list is huge.
Were the cell phones old cell phones or relatively new?
Somewhere I came across a suggestion of a link between Brandon Woodard and Joseph McStay (missing with his entire family).. maybe in the McStay thread. It is thought they were lured.
Also somewhere there was a suggestion of a link between Woodard and/or his mother and Thomas Wales (a murdered white collar crime prosecutor or investigator.) Any thoughts?
I read somewhere the ticket was round trip. Is there any confirmation of the one-way ticket?
The sedan went through the tunnel deliberately, so the license would be read. Was the car ever missing from the woman who had it? Perhaps the hit planner switched license plates, prior to the hit, then switched them back afterwards.
