Alex Algeri and Paul Reidel were best friends and business partners who ran a gym in Long Island, New York. When one of them was murdered in cold blood, police struggled to find a motive or any leads. This made the authorities question if the man who was killed was really the intended victim, or if it was a case of mistaken identity?
