A teen mother from Miami, Florida, was arrested and charged after she allegedly attempted to hire a hitman online to kill her 3-year-old toddler.
On Wednesday, 18-year-old Jazmin Paez was booked into the Miami-Dade County detention centre following her reported attempt on her son’s life. Reports state that Paez used the website RentaHitman.com in her attempt to solicit a hitman and allegedly provided a photograph of her son as well as his address.
The teen is said to have expressed that she “wanted to get something done once and for all” and that the murder had to be done by Thursday. Paez also allegedly stated that her son needed to be taken “far, far away and possibly killed, but asap.”
RentaHitman.com’s owner, Robert Innes, who created the website to “catch and curb those looking to hire a killer,” reported Paez’ requests to the authorities, who then posed as the hitman.
After Paez was confirmed to be the owner of the computer whose IP address was used to make the request, the undercover police conducted a conversation with her, during which she once again expressed her wish to have her son killed.
The teen allegedly agreed to pay the hitman $3,000 to complete the task.
Paez was charged with first-degree solicitation of murder and third-degree using a communications device for an unlawful purpose. Reports state that she has since received bail, and her son is currently safe in the custody of other family members.
