Louisiana Teenager Awarded Donkey Of The Day For Hiring Online Hitman To Eliminate Her Ex

Louisiana Teenager Awarded Donkey Of The Day For Hiring Online Hitman To Eliminate Her Ex

Police in Louisiana on Monday arrested a 14-year-old girl for solicitation of murder.

They say she went online and tried to find a contract killer to kill her ex-boyfriend, who is also 14.

“An administrator of a website gave us a call to report that someone from Baton Rouge reached out to them to have someone killed,” said officer L’jean Mckneely of the Baton Rouge Police Department.

Baton Rouge police got that call in January and after vetting the information, they arrested the ninth grader.

“We made contact with the 14-year-old female and talked to her about putting that on the website and after our discussion we felt like we needed to make the arrest. She was booked into juvenile detention,” Mckneely said.

Michael Nunnery is representing the teen.

“That’s such bull shit and I’m going to leave it right there. I have nothing else to say. There is no way she did any act furtherance of this crime. There’s no way she could have carried it out. They are sensationalizing this at that point,” he said.

Typically, juvenile hearings are closed to the media and the public, but because this juvenile is charged with a violent crime it’s open. Baton Rouge Police say she gave the alleged hit-man all the information someone would have needed to carry it out.

Those specifics included pictures of her ex, the times he gets on the bus, and locations of where the hitman might find him.

“My client is a juvenile first of all. And first of all in order to carry out any crime you have to have the wherewithal to make it happen. This is a 14-year-old, she doesn’t have five dollars to pay a hit-man ok,” Nunnery said.

But Baton Rouge Police believe if the site were real, the teen could have made good on her promise through the valid information she entered into the website.

“This particular child has psychological issues and she’s been certified of having psychological issues and so forth and so on. So really this is a whole lot to do about nothing at the end of the day. She has no ability or really desire to kill anybody and this was her acting out,” Nunnery said.

The girl was ordered to be held on a $75,000 bond.

Her lawyer says the website his client went to should be investigated for entrapment.

The site, ‘rent-a-hitman-dot-com’, is satirical- it’s a joke.

However, the man behind the site says when he sees messages that look serious, he forwards them to authorities.
