It Seemed Like Such a Good Idea at the Time...
Our team of investigators was able to obtain this photo of the unidentified victim from Orchard Park.
The night started out so well for this unidentified man from Orchard Park. He won $15,000 at the Seneca Niagara Casino. Traveling by himself, he decided to spend some of it on the way home at Club Chit Chat on Clinton St. What could possibly go wrong?
Everyone knows these places are all owned by motorcycle gangs and Russian Mafia types. This guy should get nominated for The Buffalo News Citizen of the Year Award. Drinking and gambling, followed by a visit to a neighborhood strip bar. Somewhere, a Russian thug is walking around with $15,000 and this guy's identification.
