I agree that this story reads like a plant to divert attention from other issues.
The oil giant ExxonMobil said today it did not believe the murder – which occurred on 14 October but was not revealed until today – was linked to Mr Mockford’s work.

I saw someone make a lame attempt in this thread to throw in a "occupy mentality" comment in order to derail the topic at hand, or to somehow tie the Occupy Movement to this kind of violence. ( I wonder who they're working for? ). People have mentioned the idea that "average people" are getting fed up with the economy, and that they might start taking matters into their own hands. Another person mentioned the wife's intentions.
In my mind, this was obviously a professional hit, right out of the playbook. No robbery of any kind occured.
In addition, what kind of "average person" has the wherewithall and resources to track the movements and whereabouts of a corporate executive? It's not impossible, but not likely. The executive would have to be an absolute creature of habit in order for the "Average Joe" to keep up with him.
This was an act that lacked emotion or passion. A disgruntled former employee or someone who had experienced some kind of personal loss due to this man's actions ( or inactions ) would have done this in a much more more personal way, and most likely would have gone into "over kill" mode and made a real mess. And let's not forget that this crime wasn't perpetrated by a lone gunman - this was a Team Hit. To me, that screams intelligence agency or corporate involvement.
I find it interesting that the word "blackmail" came into play in the press. What's that all about? That to me seems to be a big clue. Perhaps he moonlighted as an intelligence agent. Corporations and executives are often playing hand in glove with government intelligence agencies. Maybe he wanted out. Maybe he wanted in. Perhaps he wanted more money, and he was the one threatening some form of blackmail, and his bluff was called in a major way. Perhaps he did indeed have a strong case for Green Energy usages, and the oil cronies found this to be financially inconvenient ( and I find this scenario very plausible ).
So the judge orders a media blackout - which is done ( supposedly ) with these types of "more serious" murder cases ( as if ALL murder cases aren't serious??? ). These elements are like a trail of bread crumbs being left along the path to more solid evidence. This does appear indeed to be a classic "Who Done It" here in the real world. My prediction is that this case will fade from public sight very quickly, and the case will never be satisfactorally resolved.

Mrs Mockford said the men had shouted 'Money, money, car, car,' as they attacked the couple, reported the Sunday Times.
The couple had just left Italian restaurant Da Mercello, after celebrating their 17th wedding anniversary. Mr Mockford told his wife 'We will never leave each other,' only moments before the attack at about 10pm on October 14.
Two men in crash helmets attacked the pair and Mrs Mockford cried out 'My husband, my husband!' as she lay bleeding on the pavement.
Detectives believe Mr Mockford was killed by a 'nervous criminal' who experienced a 'violent rage' before firing four bullets in quick succession. A senior investigator said: 'A nervous criminal is likely to have got into a violent rage as the couple effectively fought back,' quoting expert police profilers.

We live in an age of lawlessness. There are transnational hit squads roaming the planet eliminating individual that are or might cause national interests a problem. There are drones flying all over the place killing people that put videos on youtube insulting the US, Israel executes any Palestinian living anywhere on the planet.
These 'hits' are normal.
