Andrew Kissel, brother of murdered banker Robert Kissel was himself found murdered in the basement of his Greenwich, CT home yesterday. While the murder trial of Robert Kissel's wife, Nancy, provided a sordid look into the troubled life of an extremely rich Hong Kong expat investment banker, his wife, and her lover, the Andrew Kissel case has yet to unfold. Yet with a Andrew's criminal past, recent divorce, and speculation of a Mafia-style hit, this may turn out to be another interesting story of greed, abuse, and revenge.

For someone so rich, you'd think he'd have a hotter wife.

God that name, Kissel sounds so damn familiar, and not from the hong-kong banking scene.

Damn, it's from fight club:


Your name was Raymond K. Hessel on your driver's license. You live at 1320 SE Benning, apartment A. That had to be a basement apartment. They usually give basement apartments letters instead of numbers.

Raymond K. K. K. K. K. K. Hessel, I was talking to you.

Your head rolled up and away from the gun, and you said, yeah. You said, yes, you lived in a basement.


Sounds similar. Robert, Raymond.

"God that name, Kissel sounds so damn familiar, and not from the hong-kong banking scene."

Well, Harrison Ford made the Kissel Run in under twelve parsecs. That's probably it.
