But “Eradicated” Could Mean So Many Things

craigslist1232.jpgHey! Craigslist is not just for selling your used baby cribs or prostituting yourself anymore. Now, you can hire yourself a killer.

A Michigan woman is behind bars and facing extradition to Northern California, where FBI agents said she advertised on Craigslist for someone willing to kill the unsuspecting wife of a man she’d begun an affair with online.
Ann Marie Linscott, 49, offered $5,000 for the hit, had the name and work address of the woman she wanted dead and in e-mails with stunned job seekers described successful candidates as “silent assassins,” according to agents and court documents.
Linscott allegedly asked respondents to “eradicate a female living in Oroville, California,” and she provided additional information on the intended victim, including her physical description, age and employment address. On two separate occasions following the November ad posting, she offered payment of $5,000 upon completion of “the eradication task,” according to court documents.

$5,000? I figure the going rate for hire-for-murder was a lot more than that — that’s like hitman minimum wage.

What I want to know is under what section she listed her ad?

I believe it was posted as a request for a "freelance job". Just didn't say what kind. Until you emailed her to ask. What a dumbass.

Michigan is broke as balls. $5000 is a jackpot for a hit man of any caliber.
