Mother hires assassin to kill her children over inheritance
A 67-year-old Russian woman was apprehended for contracting an assassin to kill her children in a bid to secure their inheritance, as reported by Metro UK on Monday.
The shocking incident took place in Krasnoyarsk, the second-largest city in Siberia.
The motive behind this heinous act was the woman’s desire to become the sole owner of a valuable family property. To accomplish her sinister plan, she conspired with an acquaintance who helped her locate a hitman willing to carry out the murderous act. A substantial sum of money, displayed in police photographs, was allegedly set aside by the woman to facilitate the payment.
However, the unfolding tragedy took an unexpected turn on the day the contract killer was scheduled to eliminate one of her daughters. The authorities intervened and successfully apprehended the woman before any harm could befall her children.
In an official statement issued by the Ministry, it was revealed that the suspect was arrested by the criminal investigation department of the Krasnoyarskoye Ministry of Internal Affairs.
The ministry further disclosed that their operatives had received intelligence indicating the intentions of a 67-year-old resident of the region, born in 1956.
The woman, aiming to retain exclusive ownership of the valuable real estate, had orchestrated the murder plot targeting her 45-year-old son, born in 1978, as well as her two daughters, born in 1974.
The incident has sent shockwaves throughout the community as the extent of a mother’s betrayal toward her own children and the lengths she was willing to go to for personal gain come to light. The legal proceedings following the arrest will shed further light on the motivations and factors leading up to this disturbing act.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
