Jeffery Lytle, a 42-year-old American man wanted to kill his life in order to claim the insurance money worth $1,500,000, the deal to kill included the daughter too. He had everything in place until he wrongly sent the plan to his ex-boss which was supposed to reach the hitman, Shayne.
His wife Rhoda Mee Funtanilla Lytle from the province of Abra, had an insurance cover of $1,000,000 while her daughter’s policy amounted to $500,000. The husband and hitman had a deal of fifty-fifty once the job was done.
The text messages was released by the Snohomish County Sherriff’s office:
“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.”
“– life insurance is worth 1 million and if you want a bounes (bonus) you can kill [JL]. Her life insurance is 500K.”
“—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.”
“I’ll split everything with the insurance 50/50”
Robert Alexander, the former boss who was obviously taken aback by the texts brought it to the notice of the concerned authorities. Lytle who was taken to the custody, admitted to the fact that he typed the message but never intended to send them. He said that it was just a mechanism to “help him vent” his anger.
He claims that his daughter must have sent those messages by accident, however, the prosecutors didn’t buy the story and he was charged with “criminal solicitation for murder in the first degree.” He has since been detained at the Snohomish County Jail.
