Bullet narrowly missed Irish mob target's heart
The Oklahoman's Brianna Bailey has been covering alleged attempts by the Irish Mob to silence witnesses.
They nearly succeeded recently, but a bullet missed its intended target's heart by just 1 cm, Bailey reported.
Townes was initially arrested by police for suspected involvement with the January 2016 Irish Mob slaying of an associate of the rival United Aryan Brotherhood.
He was later cleared by law enforcement and never charged in the case. However, the Irish Mob Gang labeled Townes a "snitch."
Townes claims he did not give information to police in the case outside of hiring an attorney and working to clear his name.
He learned of a threat to his life on June 23, 2016, just hours before being shot in the chest, according to a transcript of his court testimony.
Oklahoma police called Sandra Stevens' death a suicide. Were they right?
