Description

The Times reports that top executives associated with Carole Little, one of the nation's largest producers of women's wear, were the targets of a bizarre series of killings, assaults and threats. Two Carole Little executives were slain in their cars within a five-month period. In another attack, one of the company's top contractors is shot to death just outside his place of business. The brother and sister-in-law of the slain contractor are wounded in a separate shooting. The wounded brother is co-owner of the garment contracting firm. Executives at Carole Little initially discount theories that link the crimes. The Times investigation finds evidence of organized crime involvement and the existence of sweatshops that held dozens of Thai immigrants in virtual slavery withing the industry. (May 18, 19, 20, 23, Aug. 3, 4, 23, Nov. 3 & 4, 1995)
