Midtown Assassination Was Reportedly Payback for Bad Drug Deal

By
Woodard's last moments.

The mysterious and shocking daytime assassination of Los Angeles law student Brandon Woodard in midtown earlier this month was part of a bicoastal dispute over a major drug deal, according to DNAinfo investigative journalist Murray Weiss. Weiss reports that a Queens drug crew paid hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars for Mexican cocaine from a Los Angeles drug crew, but the drugs were never delivered. Woodard, apparently some kind of middleman, paid the price. “They screwed with the wrong people,” a source says.
