A 26-year-old woman was arrested and charged by the police, allegedly agreeing to pay $ 20,000 via the darknet for a hitman to kill her family.
ACT Police was warned by a British journalist that an Australian person paid online and shared details on how to target two people in October.
The Canberra woman allegedly agreed to pay $ 20,000 for the double murder of her parents and paid $ 6,000 at the agreed price.
Police were arrested Monday when they issued a search warrant for a house in Canberra’s suburb of Fadden, where they also confiscated computer equipment.
The woman was charged twice with attempted murder and did not apply for bail to the ACT Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.
Attorney Sergeant Beth McMullen said that the police motivated the woman with financial gain.
“ACT Policing acted quickly to make sure there was no threat to the safety of victims in this regard,” said Ms. McMullen.
This was a complex investigation, as it could track and verify the report and dark web payment from abroad.
ACT Police contacted international police officials yesterday to look for further evidence leading to a search warrant and arrest.
The victims also cooperated with the police and we do not believe there is an ongoing threat to their safety. ‘
Parents were reportedly unaware that they were allegedly targeted by their daughters until the police informed them.
According to ABC News, Ms. McMullen said, ‘They (parents) were not aware that it was happening and they fully cooperated with us.
The victims were very shocked and understandably anxious.
Police claimed the girl had paid for a ‘fraudulent’ website, but that her intention was genuine.
They don’t know who created the website or who accepted the payment.
No one is expected to be blamed for this crime.
