Detective-ing

by - 4:13:00 AM

You know how I always complain about having to post stories to the web? Well, even though I still extremely dislike having to do it, today's topic can actually be accreditted to that mindless task. You see, normally I just click on the "National Summaries" folder, find the "Right Now" entry that has six to seven different stories, start at the top and post all of those until I meet my weekly quota. Well today, for whatever reason, I deviated from my usual pattern of mindlessness and clicked on the "State News" folder instead. While I was scanning the headlines, not expecting to see anything of interest, one caught my eye.

Newlywed Murder Plot

I had to click on it. It was just jumping off the page at me. So I clicked, and what I read was disturbing but not for the reasons you're probably imagining.
In August of last year, a 27-year-old woman from Boynton Beach, Fla., was charged with solicitation to commit first-degree murder. According to the police, she paid an undercover detective $1200 to buy a gun and act as a hitman. She gave him pictures of her husband as well as his daily schedule and offered to create an alibi for herself. They'd only been married for six months.

Okay, so she's on trial for this right? Well, that's not what the story was about. This woman's husband wants a divorce. Go figure. So he files for divorce, butttt a judge granted a stay because the evidence-gathering process was interfering with the murder-for-hire case against his wife.

Really? She paid a detective to kill her husband! What more evidence do they need to grant the man a divorce?!

And before you ask, no. I don't know why she wanted to kill him. I could probably find out, but I'm lazy and don't feel like putting in the time to research this case. Instead, I looked for detective pictures on google. Which led me to this:
I think I could pull this off for next Halloween, don't you? Except, you know, without the big bustiness exploding from the neckline 'cause I'm not that blessed. But still, I think this is a pretty sweet costume.
