Um, is a car really worth KILLING somebody for? How does someone think that they can not only get away with stealing a car but that they can also just stab the car salesman with a butcher knife that they just so happened to have? This is a scary world folks.
Frank D’Agostino, general manager of S&J Chevrolet in the 18600 block of Studebaker Road, said Macaso arrived about 7 p.m. Tuesday and asked to drive a demonstrator car.
“The policy is you can’t test-drive a car without a driver’s license, and he couldn’t produce one,” D’Agostino said.
The man became violent in the dealership office when the salesman, whose identity was being withheld until relatives could be notified, turned down the request, Evans said.
Investigators said the suspect withdrew a knife from his clothing and immediately stabbed the salesman several times in the chest before attempting to flee.
