Ah, the retcon; the panic button for when story-telling has taken a bad turn. First off, it took them how many years to decide that this was what happened? I don't even know that this story is canon (I don't think it is because it hasn't truthfully spread throughout the mythos) and even if it is, I would think a professional hitman would be even LESS likely to leave a witness than a desperate junkie. You don't need a living witness to say it was a mugging. You take the wallets and the cops will draw their own conclusions.
