Manage episode 303291285 series 2506709
What if you hacked a hitman-for-hire website and found out the identities of people who were slated to die before the murder? How much does it cost to hire a hitman on the Dark Web? And what if all of these supposed hitmen were just part of a giant, lucrative hoax?
In this episode, we explore the stranger-than-fiction tale of hitmen services being sold on the darkest corners of the internet.
Guests include Gian Volpicelli of Wired UK; Eileen Ormsby, a journalist and author; and Randy McAlister of the Cottage Grove, Minnesota police department.
