Perhaps the innocent relative of Gerry "The Monk" Hutch has been murdered by a serious criminal for his very personal dispute.
Detectives did not rule out that Clive Staunton, the remote relationship of former veteran crime, was shot as part of a hutch-cinchan dispute.
However, the other theory is that his killing may be the result of a rising line that has recently come to the head.
The 50-year-old goal was after the sale of jerseys at a game in Ireland on Thursday evening at the Aviva stadium.
Hitman turned his father's van into his head and, while he was able to get out, was shot twice in the head outside his home at Glen Easton Way in Leixlip, Co Kildare.
Source told Irish Sunday Mirror that no matter who carried out the murder, he was wearing all the signs of a professional team for hitters.
The source said: "The Garda is now investigating if Mr Staunton is not actually an innocent victim of a bloody conflict, but he is devoted to the line above a personal matter. This is an investigative line that is thoroughly studied.
No matter who did this, it was a professional hit in every respect.
"The recording was done well and those who carried it were more than likely paramilitaries.
"Not only were they firing on a van, but then followed and ended up on the ground when he tried to escape."
It is believed that Son of Staunton's son Ryan is on his way home from abroad to officially identify the body.
The friends and family of a street trader have honored the profession of a football fanatic, described as a "hard-working, friendly fella".
Officials believe that he might have been watched when he worked at a game in Ireland before they came back to their home for 20 years.
His killer – or murderers – have fled the area in a Volvo silver car.
We believe that three cars were used in the murder, one of the found 22km away in Manor Kilbride on the edge of Wicklow Mountains.
The death of Mr Staunton has a striking appearance with the shooting of Noel "Kingsize" Duggana in March 2016. He was a friend of "Monk" and is suspected of being a target for this.
Mr Staunton, who originated from a Greek street in central Dublin, became a widow when his wife died of cancer in February 2016.
Bloody Hutch-Kinagan clashes claimed 19 lives, despite the success of detectives in preventing more hits.
The killings began in Spain with the murder of Gary Hutch, nephew of the Monk, September 2015.
This was followed by the shooting of David Byrne at the box office at the Regency Hotel in Dublin in February 2016.
This month, three people were sentenced to life because of their role in the murder of Father Gareth Hutch in May 2016.
Mr Staunton, who was a big football fan and member of Manchester United's football clubs, was also linked to another innocent man who was beaten last year and shot twice in his stomach.
The victim survived the attack, but she understood that she had since moved to Australia when she was afraid of his life.
