TOKYO (Reuters) - A Japanese woman called in the police after a hitman she paid to kill her lover's wife failed to carry out the job.
The 32-year-old Tokyo woman was arrested Wednesday for incitement to murder, the Daily Yomiuri newspaper said Friday.
The woman contacted a private detective through a Web site last November and paid him 1 million yen in cash to murder her
love rival, the paper said.
The 40-year-old detective accepted the money and suggested he could carry out the job by chasing the victim on a
motorcycle and spraying her with a biological agent in a tunnel.
Police also arrested the private detective and found the alleged target safe and well, the paper said.
Lesson of the day: If you're going to commit an illegal act (or hire someone else to do it), DON'T fucking call the police because the hitman you hired failed to kill the target...you deserve multiple buttrapings for your stupidity.
