A company in turmoil: strategic implications


Lee Vaccari was married and he and his wife had 3 children. Lee left his wife and began seeing another woman, or vice-versa. In 1984 Lee was planning a trip to Vale, Colorado with his mistress, and one of his sons to spend Christmas at his condo in Vale. The son was having surgery, and the plan was to leave when the son was discharged from the hospital. 

On the day his son was discharged, Lee and his female companion stopped by the hospital to get his son. As they were leaving the hospital, Lee’s estranged wife entered the lobby of the hospital, walked up to Lee and stuck a 9mm pistok in his stomach, and pulled the trigger 7 times. Lee died on the operating table.
