Submission + - PC World editor killed in his home

smooth wombat writes: Rex Farrance, PC World Magazine's senior technical editor, was shot dead by masked gunmen who had broken into his home on Tuesday evening. His wife, Lenore Vantosh-Farrance, was pistol whipped. She was able to call 911 but the assailants fled before the police arrived.

Investigators are suggestng the attack was drug related. From the article:

"We have substantial reason to believe that the victim and his wife were involved in the possession and, potentially, the distribution of illegal narcotics," said Pittsburg police Inspector John Conaty, who declined to specify what type of drugs were involved.
