Last week, the Des Plaines authorities arrested a 31-year-old registered nurse who allegedly contacted a murder-for-hire company on the dark web to have her love adversary killed. The woman’s arrest came soon after the law enforcement officials received a tip from a CBS-hosted reality show who was doing research on dark web hitmen.
Des Plaines Registered Nurse Felt Hindered by Colleague’s Wife
According to the police report, Tina E. Jones, the 31-year-old registered nurse was attempting to have her male colleague’s wife assassinated as she felt that the woman hindered their relationship.
Based on Jones’ confession, the authorities discovered that she had an affair with another colleague from the Loyola Medical Center. Apparently, Jones’ affairs with the unnamed man continued for some time, long enough for the woman to become emotionally attached to her married colleague.
When Jones heard that the man was thinking about ending the affair, the Des Plaines registered nurse weaved a plan to have her love rival removed.
As a result, the nurse contacted a murder-her-hire company over the dark web. More than that, Jones left detailed information about how to make her male colleague’s wife’s murder look like an accident. Records show that the Des Plaines registered nurse paid $10,000 in Bitcoins to have her adversary remove.
Interestingly enough, the woman’s subversive activities were uncovered by a “48 Hours” reporter who was, allegedly, doing research on dark web hitmen. After stumbling upon Jones’ request, the reporter tipped the authorities who, in turn, arrested the Des Plaines registered nurse.
Jones was charged with soliciting criminal services and booked into county jail on a $250,000 bond. According to the authorities, if Jones posts half the bail, she could return home until her court appearance scheduled for the 15th of May.
As part of her trial, the Des Plaines registered nurse is prohibited from making contact with the victim or any family members.
