    Regarding Coleman Sweeney, here is Patrick McManus “How I Got This Way”

    “Nothing improves character so much as death. I once knew a man, Pete by name, who abused his family unmercifully, stole, robbed, lied, cheated, and was suspected of at least one murder. Pete himself came to a violent end at the hands of an unknown assailant who may have been of the opinion he was performing a public service. Others thought so. Within a day of Pete’s demise, however, somebody recalled a good deed the deceased had once performed, possibly an incident in which he had met a stranger on a lonely road and hadn’t robbed him. Soon, even his victims were concluding that he hadn’t been such a bad sort after all, merely misunderstood. Then someone recalled that the fellow had been a good worker on occasion, and someone else remembered his actually having repaid a debt. By the time of the funeral, the man’s character had improved so much that he had become one of our town’s leading citizens, widely revered for his acts of charity, courage, honesty, and kindness, and if he had a fun-loving tendency to pull the occasional prank, why that was to be forgiven on the grounds that nobody’s perfect.”

      Sounds like Pete was a member of the Clinton or Biden families.
