A 19-year-old woman’s plot to murder her family was revealed when the ‘hitman’ she hired turned out to be her own aunt.
Tuscaloosa police arrested Marissa Williams and charged her with trying to enlist a hitman on Facebook to murder her family. She is being held on $30,000 bond, The NY Post reports.
Williams befriended the hitman on Facebook — not realizing “he” was her aunt. She gave him her contact info and address, asked him to come over and get drunk with her and offered to have sex with him if he paid her $50 cell phone bill, according to court documents obtained by the NY Post.
Williams had been living in her aunt’s home since April and their relationship became strained when Williams would invite strange men she met online to come to the house.
After her aunt asked her to stop inviting men to her home, Williams blocked her aunt from seeing her activity on Facebook.
Her aunt created a fake Facebook persona and began communicating with Williams directly. That’s when, police say, Williams invited the man to come over and kill her aunt.
Williams gave the man — her aunt — detailed instructions on how to gain access to her aunt’s bedroom. She told him to kill her aunt’s fiancé first, and asked him to shoot her cousin and the dog on the way out.
The aunt called the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office and advised them of Williams’ plans.
When interrogated by police, Williams admitted the plot but said she didn’t really mean for anyone to be killed.
