I think there are at least three possibilities as to why Kyle was in that parking lot.

  1. He was meeting someone he knew.
  2. A cop pulled Kyle over for whatever reason.
  3. Road rage incident

Whoever it was didn’t waste any time in shooting him. But why? What the hell was the reason? From what I read, Kyle didn’t have any enemies.

The road rage incident almost makes the most sense because the crime happened so quickly and Kyle had no intention of going to any place other than the Chinese restaurant. read more

Shortly before Christmas on December 21, 2012, 34-year-old husband and father of three, Kyle Seidel, called in an order at 7:49 p.m. to Lucky Inn Chinese restaurant, located at 40 Boston Post Road, Waterford, Connecticut.  He left shortly thereafter to pick it up.

Kyle never arrived at the restaurant.

At 8:19 pm, Kyle was found lying in a pool of blood in the parking lot of Waterford Family Bowl, located at 120 Boston Post Road, a half mile from the Chinese restaurant. He had been shot once in the neck (early reports say chest). His black Ford Focus was still running and the driver’s door was open. read more

There is a ton of information on this case, with some articles going farther in-depth than I chose to go. I decided to stick to the basics of the case.

So, here’s what I have to say about it.

I find it a little strange that Johnny was able to leave his home without his parents knowledge. His dad should have been up and ready to go with him, as he always had done so in the past. Why wasn’t he ready on this day? read more

However, on this day only Johnny’s dachshund, Gretchen was with him.  The night before, Johnny asked his parents if he could go on the route alone. They told him no.
