The FBI offers a piece on an unusual 2006 case.
*Marissa Mark wanted someone dead—her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend, to be precise. And she found a way to have it done…from her computer.
*In September 2006, the Pennsylvania resident and recent college graduate logged on to HitmanForHire.net, a site often misinterpreted as a joke. But it was no laughing matter for Mark, who spelled it out very clearly: “I…want her done by [a] shot to the head.”
*And the “hitman for hire” on the other end? Las Vegas poker dealer Essam Ahmed Eid, an Egyptian national who was apparently looking for a little something to do on the side. After demanding a $37,000 fee from Mark—who came up with a “down payment” by stealing credit card information she had access to at the collections agency where she worked—Eid drove to the Los Angeles area, where he showed up at the workplace of the 23-year-old intended victim.
