Dresden by Night

The public prosecutor of Dresden has indicted a German woman who allegedly tried to hire a hitman on the dark web to murder her ex-husband’s girlfriend.

In a press release the Dresden public prosecutor disclosed that a 41 year old woman attempted to hire a hitman on the darkweb to kill the 23 year old girlfriend of her ex-husband.

The 43 year old woman allegedly accessed a “murder-for-hire” site on the darkweb in February 2021. She contacted the site’s administrator and explained her situation (i.e., she wanted to have her ex-husband’s girlfriend murdered). The woman negotiated with the site’s admin and they both agreed that she would pay 0.2 bitcoin and her target would be murdered two weeks after she made the payment.

On February 27, 2010 the Dresden District Court has placed the woman under pre-trial detention, the Dresden District Court will announce the date for the opening of the woman’s hearing.
