Samuels hid millions in the Caymans, and pleaded poverty to a judge, who then ordered him to pay $3,000 a month in child support.  At that point he hatched the plan to get rid of the Grossmans, and line his own pockets at the same time. He had a $1 million life insurance policy on Heather Grossman.

In 1996 Samuels hires a hit man to kill his ex-wife and her husband John Grossman, for $1,500. The cheap moron hires two crack addicts, and they bungled a drive by shooting, Grossman received a grazing hit, and the wife, became a paraplegic, but lived.
