John Halston was a professional hitman.
Halston was hired by Mr. Drogan, on a referal from Saul Loggia, to kill a stray cat. Prior to taking Drogan's job, Halston's resume include twenty-four kills: 18 men and six women. He had never been suspected of any of his handiwork.
While driving his 1973 Plymouth along State Route 35, he was attacked by the cat, causing him to swerve into the ditch along the road. The crash paralyzed him long enough for the cat to attack him, literally clawing its way into his mouth and down his throat. By the following morning, the cat had eaten its way to his stomach and out his chest again.
