Another friend of Allen, Alexander Dochmaschewsky, said he might have inadvertently given him an idea on how to dump the body. After Allen said he wanted to kill Mullenix and offered him $100 to drive the body to the desert, Dochmaschewsky said he made a joke.
“I said if I were ever to dispose of a body, I would weight it down and throw it in the ocean,” he said. “Now I’m not serious I thought we were just having a joking conversation.”
But things got more ominous soon after, Dochmaschewsky said.
“I said I’m going to tell on him, report him,” he said. “He said, ’Well, if you do, I’ll kill you.’”
