Hitmen for Hire: Shocking True Crime Stories

The FBI says Javier A. Rodriguez, a 47-year old who makes his home in Delaware, figured his ex-wife, or rather, getting rid of his former wife, would be worth ten grand.

Industriously, Javier found a guy who said he knew a hitman who could do the job.

Javier met up with this supposed hitman in a tire shop in New Jersey. Where else but Jersey?

Javier showed up to the meeting with $5,000 in his pocket. He promised another $5,000 once his ex-wife was on a slab in the morgue with a bullet in her brain.

You probably know the end of this sad story. The hitman turned out to be an undercover FBI agent.

So, rather than this deal meaning the end of his ex-wife's life, it probably means the cessation of freedom for Javier for another ten years. At least that's the maximum he faces if convicted.

Of course, Javier must be considered innocent until found guilty by a jury of his peers.

Now, another story of hitmen with a Delaware connection.

A Schenectady, New York, building contractor went fishing in Delaware for a couple of guys willing to murder for money.

Guess what? He found them, and these two were not FBI agents. They were, indeed, killers for hire.

Marchand Lall, a 54-year-old, wanted Joevany Luna and Kyshaan Moore to end the life of a guy by the name of Charles Dombrosky.

The motive: Money.

Somehow, Lall was listed as a beneficiary of the soon-to-be-dead Dembrosky's $150,000 life insurance policy.

The cops busted this scheme, but not before Dembrosky was murdered. The hapless Dembrosky was shot down right in front of his home on November 19, 2016.

Detectives busted the trio who pulled this merciless murder off by amassing what the Daily Gazette described as a "mountain of technological evidence. The prosecution's case was based on cellphone records, street surveillance video, and license plate readers.

Luna is doing life now for the killing. Moore, who drove Luna from Delaware to Schenectady for the murder, was found guilty and sentenced to twenty-five years.

How about Lall?

He, too, is doing life behind bars without a chance of parole.

Dembrosky's mother called the plot to kill her son "monstrous," and Charles's brother, Christopher, asked the judge for the maximum sentence to "protect others from this predator."

"This is a shocking case in how coldly it was calculated," said Judge Matthew Sypniewski. He handed down a life sentence in February 2019.

"We also know," the judge added, "a life based on {Lall's} calculations is worth $139,230."

Someone you know or even love is the person who will kill you. Usually, that’s true. But that is not what happened in 2018 to two college students in Iowa.

Two young women who had everything to live for, were killed by two men with nothing to lose.
