39-year-old Chris Nathaniel, former broker for Jay – Z, was arrested at Heathrow International airport in Britain on Monday after arriving from the U.S. He was arrested in connection with the stabbing of a Danny O’shea, back in December. Danny was stabbed in the neck outside his mother’s house with a knife. Supposedly because of troubles with his Mob connections.
Danny was pronounced dead on the scene. Eye witness to the murder have yet to come forward. A group of men were reportedly seen getting out of a white Ford Transit minibus before returning to their vehicle, which had the words ‘self-drive hire’ in red and blue lettering on the side, a short time later.
Danny O’Shea, The murder victim
Mr. Nathaniel and 11 others between the ages 23 to 43, are currently behind bars for their connection with the murder. Nathaniel is currently the head of NVA Entertainment Group (that was rumored to have strong connections with Britain’s organized crime groups) and has several ties with people inside the entertainment business.
Last year he brokered a deal with Jay Z and Chelsea football star Ashley Cole to open a London branch of Jay Z’s 40/40 (Could this have anything to do with the sudden shutdown of Jay Z’s New York 40/40 club? Just a thought). After the deal went through Nathaniel quoted:
’We have done some exciting deals and worked with some world class names but this collaboration of Ashley Cole and Jay-Z has to be one of the most exciting and it makes the nine months of negotiations worth it.’
The day before Chris got arrested he wrote on his facebook page:
‘Dnt surrender dnt give in persevere no matter how difficult ur life is with perseverance u will get thru anything.’
The detectives in this case are urging people to come forward. They are very frustrated because no one will talk, including Danny’s stepfather who was at the home at the time of the murder. They believe that people are afraid to talk due to the people in this case being associated with the “MOB”. A detective quoted:
“We know there were people in the area at the time of Danny’s murder and we would urge those people to come forward and help solve this crime.”
