She must have really wanted him dead.
Woman Hires Hitman To Kill Husband
You know times are hard when people are paying in stamps to murk people.
According to The NY Daily News
She went postal.
A Manhattan woman was arrested Thursday for hiring a hit man to kill her husband in exchange for $60,000 in rare stamps and jewelry, the Daily News has learned.
Elena Sava-Adams, 57, allegedly wanted banker husband Irving Adams to be run over by a car because of an argument they had over finances.
The Israel Discount Bank of New York bigwig told police he’s been unemployed for five years, law enforcement sources said.
“She’s at war with her husband over money,” a source told the News.
The ruthless woman went to an intermediary, telling him she wanted her hubby to be lured to Brooklyn because she figured there would be fewer surveillance cameras there than in lower Manhattan, where the couple live.
He told her the hit man would cost her $10,000, which she “upgraded” to a valuable jewelry and German stamp collection since she didn’t have the dough.
SMH…..but there’s more….
But instead of cashing in on the postage labels and baubles, the intermediary went to cops at the 61 Precinct on Monday and disclosed the psycho spouse’s plans, the sources said.
Detectives sought the help of an investigator in the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office who has experience playing a hit man in multiple cases.
A meeting was set up Thursday in a parking lot in Sheepshead Bay – which Sava-Adams chose because her mother-in-law lives there – and they got in the undercover’s car and drove to Shore Road to discuss the murder, sources said.
Little did she know, the meeting was being taped, and she was arrested as soon as the incriminating statements slipped out of her mouth, sources said.
She was supposed to tell the hit man in a couple of days when she wanted the murder carried out, but instead she’s being questioned at the 61 Precinct station house.
Investigators believe the batty wife would have collected his insurance money, but it’s unclear how much Irving Adams is worth.
Having someone ran over by a car because of finances is extreme. What ever happened to getting a divorce?
