Who killed Harry Up?

Mytil and friends and house
  Harry Mytil, 33, was shot dead last night at his home at 6696 Henri Julien in St Rose Laval at about 10:30 p.m.
   It would appear that whoever pumped six bullets into the veteran Bo-Gars street gang member escaped unseen.
   Mytil - who used the nickname Harry Up - had a long rap sheet, but none of his crimes, which included selling drugs, pimping and using counterfeit money, matched the splashy home invasion he helped orchestrate on the south shore, almost 10 years ago, on May 3, 2003.
   The caper was simple and brutal.
   Someone named Christina Greer rang the doorbell at the home of defence lawyer Alain Dubois, saying that she had forgotten a jacket at his place.
   Dubois knew her, so he opened the door but others forced their way in, hit Dubois in the face with a gun and forced him to open his safe and give them his cash.

   The scheme had been dreamed up by a 17-year-old boy, who got his sister to recruit Mytil, who in turn recruited Petros Tsionas, who then got Joseph Rochenelle and another man to help.
   Mytil waited in the car with a driver while all of this went on, communicating with those inside via walkie-talkie.
   The gang reconvened to divide up the cash but Mytil, who had several upcoming court appearances to deal with other previous charges, does not appear to have attended.
  The lawyer Dubois was traumatized by the incident and missed several months of work and had to visit with a psychologist about 10 times.
   He said he was deeply saddened by the loss of some items that the robbers took off with.
   Mytil was rounded up and put inside the Rivieres des Prairies jail and after 16 months plead guilty and was given four years in prison.
   Mytil also had broken the law with a breaking and entry, parole violations, weapons, counterfeit money.
   One account suggests that Mytil was killed because he was closely linked to Chenier Dupuy, who was killed after allegedly openly defying Gregory Wooley's attempt to unite street gangs under his wing, an initiative that La Presse says was undertaken by Vito Rizzuto.
