Police arrest mother for allegedly hiring assassin to kill her 3 children
The police have arrested a 67-year-old widow in Russia for hiring an assassin to kill her three children, a son and two daughters, to enable her alone to inherit a family property.
The Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs which confirmed the incident said the woman ordered the murder of her son and two daughters to become the sole owner of the property.
Her plot was, however, busted, and she was arrested by the police in Krasnoyarsk, Siberia’s second-largest city.
The woman was said to have orchestrated the plot in connivance with a friend who assisted her in finding an assassin.
Her alleged deception was revealed on the day the hired killer was supposed to kill one of her daughters and get the final payment for his job.
A photo shared by the police during the investigation shows a pile of cash that the widow allegedly took out to pay the assassin for his job.
A ministry statement said, “Employees of the criminal investigation department of the Krasnoyarskoye Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia detained a suspect in organising the murder of her children.
“Operatives received information that a resident of the regional center, born in 1956, wishing to remain the sole owner of real estate, ordered the murder of her son, born in 1978, and daughters born in 1974.”
