Millions of people along the East Coast are again rushing to buy supplies, filling their gas tanks, and secure their homes ahead of Hurricane Sandy, the rare megastorm that could cause $1billion or more in damages.

Nicholas Mockford Murder: Was executed father-of-three linked to industrial espionage? Police probe motive for 'hit' of UK oil executive by two Eastern Europeans

  • Nicholas Mockford, 60, was shot dead on October 14 but Belgian police imposed a news blackout
  • Family fear he was target of 'professional hit' because neither his silver Lexus 4x4 or wife's handbag were taken
  • Gunmen shot him four times, including once while on the ground
  • Eco-terrorists assassinated him because of ExxonMobil's involvement in Nigeria, Chad and Indonesia, claim bloggers
  • Victim's wife says killers demanded he hand over his car keys before shooting him

The theory he was the victim of a professional hit, possibly by Eastern European gunmen, is being examined because ExxonMobil have refused to release details about his work in 'intermediate technologies'.
