He knew that it
was highly unnecessary. Even though knew he was going to get
caught. This didn't bother him. He had always had a strong sense
of right and wrong and he believed that he should go to jail for
anything this severe.
any bystander or any viewer in a movie theatre it would appear
that matt was going to commit murder, the act of taking another
human beings life in cold blood. And he was about to commit
murder, just not in the 'usual way'.
in fact matt was about to commit one of the strangest murders in
history. Yet for all its peculiarity it was still going to
involve the taking of another man's life. But this wasn't random.
Matt had spent the last 4 months observing and planning this to
the very last detail. He refused to be surprised. There was only
going to be one outcome from this.
stepped up onto the footpath outside the house of his victim,
despite himself being the ex-victim, having lost his family to
this man. Matt then walked up the walkway to this man's house,
stepping up onto his porch and moving to his front door. The calm
eerie night air making his appearance sinister yet clear with
stood deathly still for what seemed like an eternity, allowing
the camera to his upper right field of vision capture his
appearance and the half empty bottle of Wild Turkey in his right
hand. Matt then raised his left hand exposing a .357 magnum
revolver. He slowly aimed the gun at the lock on the door.
Determination shining in his eyes. He then lifted the gun
slightly, reconsidering his actions for their purposes. Was it
necessary to take another man's life? Matt abruptly turned to
leave, giving the camera a final glace as he exited the porch and
walked down the path and disappeared into the night.
silently opened his car door and slid inside, glimpsing his
watch as he buckled his seat belt. 4:27 am. Perfect. He turned
the ignition and the Lexus ES300 came to life. It was just as it
was meant to be, an unremarkable car driving along a nameless
street in the early hours off the morning. He took a series of
turns which circle the block in which his victims house was
situated, this was more of a psychological benefit making himself
feel as though he were closing in upon his prey.
and there he was, the man whom had destroyed his life. Matt
closed in on his prey. He could just distinguish his sweat pants
and shirt when he floored the car, closing the gap in mere
seconds. Just before matt claimed his victims life the man turned
around with the surprised look of a deer in headlights. A look of
terror which would pervade the dreams of matts sleeps for
countless nights to come. He felt no pity as the car slammed into
his prey which would have caused him to roll across the bonnet
and into the windshield if not for the non-functioning lap post
which arrested the momentum of both car and its target.

spine severed, his ribs fragmented puncturing both heart and
lungs, lacerated his brachial artery in his shoulder and cause
intense internal bleeding of the brain. Although he was not to
die instantly he would most certainly be dead within the minute
or less due to shock. Matt however was kept reasonably safe due
to his seatbelt harness and front air bags, his only injury was
to be some slight bruising on his upper left shoulder front the

vehicle where he had the 'right to remain silent', not that he
had anything he wanted to say. If he did what would he say? The
plan went off without a hitch? And it had because matt didn't
want to spend his life running from the law yet knew that that

behaviour, which he would. The reason behind the intricacy of his
plan was that if he had just waited for his prey to come outside
and he shot him, or if he broke in and shot him, then it would be
classed as homicide or 'cold-blooded murder' and received a 25
year sentence 10 on good behaviour, however by running his victim
down in his car after viewing the footage of himself being able
to kill the man with a gun then leaving, as was shown in court as
