The murders were believed to be a part of a stock scheme between Colts Neck residents and the Russian Mafia.
The 1999 execution of two Colts Neck stockbrokers, Mayir Lehmann and Alan Chalem, is now believed to have been a part of an elaborate stock scheme between the two and the Brooklyn-based Russian mafia. The New York Daily News reported Lehmann and Chalem were allegedly murdered in a Colts Neck home by "henchman" so the mob could avoid paying the two a $5 million share from a stock scheme. The article reports that the two were shot in the foyer of Chalem's home. Lehmann was a resident of Long Island, where he lived with his wife and five children. The FBI is now working on a new theory that both men were targets of the killing, allegedly carried out by hired hitmen according to the Daily News.
