    • Women had been commodities; something to be used and easily discarded – paid off, discarded, disposed of, or eliminated.[9]

Homicide InformationEdit

  • Ellen Morandi
    • Records show she "ingested an unhealthy number of tranqs and supposedly fell or leaped from her bedroom window, twenty-two stories above the streets of Rome." According to the police file, Max Ricker was in Amsterdam when she jumped, or fell.[26]
    • Max once told Alex, though he later recanted, that he should have done to him what he'd done to the bitch who bore him. He should have gotten rid of Alex the way he had her; watched him fall, watched his brains splatter on the street.[27]
  • Three men in Atlanta
    • After the robbery of Alex's antiques store, the badly beaten bodies of the three men were found floating in the Chattahoochee River – chained together. Alex was alibied[28] though he said Max ordered the murder of the three men.[29]
  • Amaryllis Coltraine
  • When Eve set up communications to Max, regarding Cleo (after her arrest), he said that Cleo was nothing, never was, never would be – less than nothing. Max said Alex didn't have the balls to murder but at least Cleo knows how to go after what she wants; but she doesn't have Alex's brains. He acknowledged that Cleo wanted to go after Coltraine two years ago but he advised against it and told Eve to lock Cleo away.[31]
    • Cleo admitted that Max targeted Coltraine because of Alex; her murder was payback for words Alex and Max exchanged. Max wanted Coltraine to die thinking Alex ordered the hit.[32]
  • Cleo further admitted to murdering over a dozen people for Max.[33]
