Deputies: Inmate Offered Food, $2K to Hitman

An inmate in Florida has been accused of offering money and food for a hitman to kill his ex-wife and her boyfriend.

Investigators in Tavares said that Michael Lee, 32, had created a “hit list” that was found by corrections officers at the Lake County Jail, reported Fox 35.

Another inmate apparently agreed to carry out the two hits.

The other inmate, though, told officers that he never meant to go through with the hit.

“He said ‘I was using the guy. I took the trays.’ He did say, ‘He was going to pay me $2,000 once the hit was complete,’ but he said ‘I had no intention on following through with this,'” said Sgt. Fred Jones with the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.
