MySpace Murder Plot Foiled
Via The Smoking Gun.
Meet Heather Kane. The Arizona woman, 22, is facing a murder conspiracy rap for allegedly soliciting a hit man to bump off a woman whose picture appeared on her boyfriend's MySpace page.
Kane was arrested Tuesday, shortly after Mesa police learned that she was seeking someone to kill her squeeze's "female friend," according to a probable cause statement filed in Justice Court.
According to investigators, Kane was willing to pay $1000 for the murder, and gave an undercover officer a $400 down payment during a meeting in a grocery store parking lot. During that parley, Kane gave the cop photos of the female target, noting that she "pulled them off a MySpace web site from her boyfriend." Kane allegedly asked that the target be shot in the head and that the hit man provide her with a post-murder photo of the victim. It is unclear what drove Kane to allegedly plot the other woman's murder.
