Bizarre Story, Louisiana Woman Learns the Hard Way Not to Hire a Hitman
You know the rock band, "ACDC" has a song called "Dirty Deeds, Done Dirt Cheap" and that song really applies to a situation with a woman in New Orleans.
A New Orleans woman really wanted someone out of the way so much so she ordered a "hit" online and now she is going to jail according to WGNO.
Louisiana is full of crazy stories, but this one has me scratching my head wondering why anyone would believe that there was truly a real website where you could just order a hit on someone, especially someone you consider a romantic rival.
Would You Fall For This Website?
According to federal officials with the U.S. Attorney's Office in New Orleans, the woman apparently went to a website where you could enter information about what you wanted done and to whom.
U.S. Attorney Duane Evans says a 34-year-old woman named Zandra Ellis received her sentence this week after being arrested last year for filling out information on a website linked to the FBI where she entered information about a person she wanted killed.
At some point, an FBI agent posing as a hitman then spoke with Ellis. Eventually, the agent met face-to-face with the woman. At this meeting, Ellis gave the agent money as a deposit to ensure that the hit would take place. The amount was $100.
Now Ellis has been sentenced to 18 months behind bars. One of the most amazing pieces of information to come from the press release about this situation is that Ellis truly believed she was buying a hit on the romantic rival.
To make matters worse and to show just how ridiculous the website was there was a section that had something called the "Hitman Information Privacy and Protection Act".
In addition to her sentence of a year and a half in jail, she will also have 3 years of supervised release, and she has to pay a fee of $100.
