Mary Caitrin “Caity” Mahoney – Killed on July 7, 1997. In the pre-trial publicity surrounding Paula Jones lawsuit journalist Michael Isikoff dropped hints that a “former White House staffer” with the initial “M” was about to go public with her story of sexual harassment at the White House. Days later two gunmen entered a Starbuck’s that Mahoney managed. Two associates, Aaron Goodrich, 18 and Emory Evans, 25, were taken to a room and executed. Mahoney had five bullets in her, in the chest, her face, and in the back of the head from two different guns. $4000 in the store remained untouched. Among the regular customers of this shop were George Stephanopoulos, Monica Lewinsky, and Chelsea Clinton.
An affidavit filed by NOAA’s Sonya Stewart, confirms that the Department of Commerce was selling trade mission seats in exchange for campaign donations, and illegally blocking FOIA requests. Named in the affidavit as the White House staffer directly connected to this obstruction was Doris Matsui. Doris’s assigned intern during this period was Mary Caity Mahoney.

She points out the following strange circumstances were discovered around the murder scene:
1) The store’s doors had been locked from the outside, as if the night crew had locked them before leaving the night before, as they did every night. Apparently, the assailant(s) locked up behind them after committing the murders.
2) Nothing in the store was out of place. Though there were thousands of dollars in cash on hand, not one dime had been taken from the day’s receipts. This fact would seem to rule-out a robbery.
3) Despite being located in the densely populated Georgetown neighborhood, no one heard the shots. This fact suggests the assailant(s) used a silencer which would point to a professional hit.
4) While all three of the Starbucks employees had been shot, the former intern Mahoney was shot five times, once in the back of the head.
Blogger Dixie Dynamite also points to the convicted killer (the patsy) who was interrogated for 54 hours before giving a confession which he later recanted. No evidence tied him to the killing.
She also points out:
Author David M. Hoffman, spent a year investigating Mary Mahoney’s murder, and told Globe Magazine columnist Tom Kuncl that her murder came only three days after Lewinsky told the president that she was going to tell her parents about the relationship. Lewinsky said that Clinton had a violent reaction to this news, informing her: “It’s a crime to threaten the President.”
The Starr Report confirmed this account.
Hoffman said: “Monica took the threat seriously, telling Linda Tripp that she feared for both their lives if her affair with Clinton ever became public.”
Lewinsky apparently told many of her friends: “I don’t want to wind up like Caity Mahoney.”
On December 4th, just months after Caity Mahoney (and 2 co-workers) was murdered, Eric Butera, an informant who came forward offering information regarding the murder of White House intern Mary Caitrin Mahoney, was sent into an ambush situation by Federal agents and beaten to death.
