a862: (a854): Lawmaker's assassination: Chamberlain answers Wharram(fwd)

Mr Wharram, the two versions I saw matched perfectly well:
> Name spelling:
Understandable difference, since the pronunciation is identical
> Appears to be Gonaives / Appears to be PaP
Both stories state the shooting occurred in PauP
> Sitting in car with bodyguards / Driving car with wife beside him ...
daughter & bodyguards in back
Both are true. How do they conflict?
> Cause of shooting:
> Argument between gunmen / Refusal of Dirogene to give gunmen and
bodyguards a ride
Neither story said this. One said there was an argument between gunmen and
the bodyguards (not "between gunmen"). The other said the two gunmen asked
for a ride (not the gunmen and the bodyguards). Neither detail conflicts.
