Jonathan Stamp had a gun and a blackjack. Around quarter to eleven on October 26, 1965, he entered, together with Michael Koory, the rear of the building housing the offices of the General Amusement Company, looking for cash. The employees were told to go to the front. Stamp then went to the office of Carl Honeymoon, the company’s owner and general manager. Honeymoon was sixty years-old and overweight, with a history of heart disease. The amusement business, intensely competitive, added to the stress.
