His mother, Wanda Salvatto , said she'd heard about her son's death at least three times before. Despite serving a five-year prison sentence for conspiracy to commit bank robbery, Hicks was no thug, his mother said. His problems were behind him when he was killed, Salvatto said, and he talked about mentoring teenagers to keep them flying straight.

He had recently moved to Sacramento and owned a record label. Still, as his driver moved through Kansas City in the dark a year ago, a stolen black Infiniti G36 pulled alongside and someone opened fire, police said.

The van swerved across a grass median and four freeway lanes, then crashed into a ditch. Detective Babcock said the investigation was hampered early by the reluctance of Hicks' travel companions to cooperate. Some, when approached, even pretended they didn't know Hicks. But it wasn't long before rumors started to fly about a rap war -- and "Fat Tone" Watkins. Fat Tone was a large figure, literally and figuratively. After he was shot and wounded in , when he was 22, his next album cover showed him sitting up in a hospital gurney flashing a middle finger. He was "Fat Tone the Untouchable.

But when it came to Hicks' death, he said, the rumor had legs. Soon after Hicks' slaying, Watkins was summoned to Kansas City's police headquarters for an interview. Several months later, Watkins denied in a rap song that he had killed Hicks, but "the rumor was that he admitted it," Babcock said. Early on May 23, a security guard found the body of the year-old Watkins in a housing development under construction in southwest Las Vegas.

He'd been shot about 20 times and was slumped over the front seats of a blue Toyota Tercel, according to grand jury testimony. A few feet away, year-old Jermaine Akins -- a friend who was a fugitive from federal cocaine-selling charges -- also lay dead after being shot 13 times. Mathis had rented a house less than five blocks from the murder scene. Dow was with his year-old girlfriend. Laursen, who came from the small town of Payson near Provo, Utah, might have been turning tricks for Mathis, police said.

He believes the victims were driven to the neighborhood where they were killed roughly 80 minutes later.

According to Mathis' arrest warrant, he later admitted to a friend that he had shot Watkins and Akins to avenge Hicks' killing. Mathis "said he shot Watkins, then chased Akins into the street and shot him while he was on the ground pleading for his life," the warrant alleged. The Toyota Tercel, investigators now say, had been given to Dow's girlfriend by a Berkeley activist, a woman who once was her teacher. The car even bore a "Bush Lost" bumper sticker.
