Storm Lake Teen Arrested For Attempting To Hire A Hitman

Storm Lake Teen Arrested For Attempting To Hire A Hitman

The Storm Lake Police Department has arrested a 17-year-old female for allegedly attempting to hire a hitman to kill another child. Staff from the parody website, www.rentahitman.com, contacted local authorities about a subject that had visited the site two times and attempted to solicit the murder of a seven-year-old minor. Investigators identified the seven-year-old, as well as the alleged suspect. An undercover officer posed as a hitman and made contact with the teen to confirm she wanted to hire a hitman. The seven-year-old and their family were not harmed and were unaware of the potential threat. According to the Storm Lake Time Pilot, the teen was arrested on a charge of solicitation to commit murder, a class C felony, and transported to the Youth Emergency Services Center in Cherokee. The Buena Vista County Attorney’s Office and Buena Vista County Sheriff’s Office assisted the Storm Lake Police Department with the arrest. The investigation is ongoing. All charges are allegations and the people charged in this case are to be considered innocent until or unless proven guilty in a court of law.
