On November 22, 35Y, President Coriolanus Storm was assassinated as he was making his final farewells to Storm Island. As the motorcade he travelled in slowed to a crawl at an intersection, a person fired three shots at him, to which two hit him & killed him. Benjamin James Smith, a resident of Storm Island, was arrested for the crime & faced trial where he was acquitted. Smith went to his grave just three hours after his release from the courts when he was shot & stabbed to death by a surviving member of the Knights.
