Do people really think you can avoid the justice by traveling abroad to hide for years and then return, to Hathian, like nothing happened? Assuming your past transgressions were now water under the bridge, erased, forgotten and forgiven?

That describes one Cain Fox, former hitman and associate of now disbanded organized crime group “Immortals“, that were active approximately between 2014 – 2017. (The Observer has some details, e.g. HERE – Ed)

On June 7th, a suspect, later identified as Cain Fox, fired several rounds towards officers executing warrant service on one Xena Rodriquez. Suspect Fox attempted to flee but was chased, intercepted and identified by Det. Inspector K. O’Neil and Det. Lieutenant V. Blackheart.

Upon apprehension, Fox denied involvement in shooting and no firearm was found in his possession. Running background check on his priors revealed 18 cold cases and outstanding arrest warrants in connection to these cases from between April 5th 2015 and October 14th, 2017.

One unpaid citation from June 5th, 2024 was also discovered.

Fox’s hands were covered in gunpowder residue, linking him into shooting and parts of a firearm were later discovered from nearby ruins, ballistic tests confirming that weapons was fired recently.

Fox is also a suspect in homicide, reported at April 5th, 2015 – HPD’s Detective Division is currently looking into re-opening the investigation.
