Last night, someone murdered the husband and mother of Judge Joan Lefkow; each was shot once in the head. White supremecist Matthew Hale was convicted last year of putting a contract out on Judge Lefkow, after she held him in contempt of court during a copyright case. He's been under lock and key with almost no contact with the outside world, but that doesn't discount a member of his Creativity Movement (formerly the World Church of the Creator; how frightening is it that they have a CafePress store?) as a potential suspect.
