POINT 3: THAT. ALL THAT STUFF I JUST SAID.
But who was this man, Blanning? According to friends, he was âa wild ladiesâ man,â âa known swindler,
â and the disgruntled head of a mining company that had seen its revenue dwindle as Aspen became more of a resort town.
Imagine him, sitting in his lair, becoming more and more bitter as he watches flocks of tourists wander around Aspen on his series of town-wide hidden surveillance cameras. Is it any wonder he turned on the people who drove him to poverty? To unemployment? To swindling
They took everything from him, and he was about to take something back.
POINT 4: HE HAD THE EXACT MOTIVES OF A SCOOBY DOO VILLAIN.
According to police, Blanning shot himself to death soon after his plot was foiled. Thus, the denizens of Aspen are safe once again, secure in the knowledge that a troubled man will trouble them no longer.
