Court papers recently exposed that a spouse from Washington state, Jeff Lytle, was ensnared inside his own homicide conspiracy after he mistakenly texted his old boss rather than the person who was going to carry out the hit.
Lytle presumably intended to send a text to an individual named Shayne concerning a homicide for hire deal.
According to the Daily Mail, prosecutors claim Lytle was seeking to arrange the expertise of the murderer-for-hire to kill his partner and young daughter so that he could get hold of a life insurance payout of nearly one and a half million dollars.
Officials presented that the insurance policy of his wife, Rhoda Lytle, is valued at a million dollars and his young girl’s policy is valued at half a million.
Lytle committed his serious blunder when he spoke the intentions for murder-hire to his ex-boss who forwarded the information to law enforcement. The law enforcement professionals then pursued the case and apprehended Lytle.
KIRO reported the phone message stated: “Hey Shayne hows it going. You remember you said that you would help me kill my wife. I’m going to take you up on that offer.”
The records expose that Lytle apparently spoke of supplying fifty percent of the life insurance payment to Shayne, and notified the individual of the expected moment his partner comes home from her job.
“If you can make it look like a robbery gone wrong or make it an accident she works at Walmart she gets off at 11:00,” a portion of the phone text said.
When asked by authorities, Lytle suggested his little girl perhaps got a hold of a phone and sent the texts.
Then he proposed that he wrote the murder-for-hire directives to “vent” after having an argument with his partner and didn’t really mean to proceed with the murder plan.
New York Daily News claims Lytle also rejected the fact that “Shayne” is even real.
The perpetrator is currently facing 2 counts of solicitation of murder and is being kept at Snohomish County jail with a 1 million dollar bond.
Detectives have declared for a warrant to look through Lytle’s mobile device and residence for any materials related to the wife and daughter’s life insurance plan. Examination of the case is ongoing.
