San Diego Magazine looks at a murder for hire situation between two doctors. "Orthopedic surgeon William Shoemaker, driving on Interstate 805 from his home in Rancho Santa Fe to his office in Mission Valley, had indeed been shot.... Initially, local media called the incident a random attack... It was, it turns out, a part of a Kafkaesque tale of greed, revenge and death, in which Shoemaker was just one of the innocent intended victims... San Diego police began to suspect Shoemaker's former medical partner, Dr. Ron Neufeld, who was enmeshed in a bitter legal dispute with Shoemaker." Neufeld later committed suicide.
