Wealthy party host, Jay Gatsby, was shot to death by George Wilson in his pool at his home in West Egg on Thursday. Police are labeling him as the victim of a murder-suicide. Police are calling the incident a revenge crime. Myrtle Wilson, Wilson’s wife, was killed in a hit-and-run accident on Wednesday by a yellow Rolls Royce matching the description of Gatsby’s car. Police have refused to elaborate more on this incident. It is said that the FBI is also involved in this investigation due to the rumored accounts of Gatsby's relation with bootlegging operations, along with New York crime kingpin Meyer Wolfsheim.
It was said that there were two people in the car when Myrtle Wilson was killed; Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan, who were former lovers when they were younger. Daisy came from a rich family, and Gatsby did not. But, when Gatsby left for the war, Daisy married Tom Buchanan, who also came from a rich family. After the accident, Gatsby took the blame, even though Daisy was driving. But, no one knows the truth -- except for Nick Carraway, who was Gatsby's neighbor. George Wilson was angry, and pressured Tom into telling him who's car it was that killed his wife.
