Animal rights activists have been known to do some wild isht, but this might take the (vegan) cake.
A woman named Meredith from Ohio, was arrested yesterday by the FBI after she tried to hire a hit man on Facebook. And who exactly was her target? Oh, you know, just any ol’ person who happened to be wearing a fur:
Meredith Marie Lowell, was arrested Tuesday at her home by federal agents and has been charged with solicitation to commit murder for offering to pay someone who turned out to be an FBI agent $850 for the killing.
“She was very direct in what she wanted to do to the point where we felt that we needed to act,” said Scott Wilson, an FBI spokesman in Cleveland.
Posing as a woman named “Anne Lowery,” Lowell said in a Facebook posting late last year she wanted to create an online community to find a person willing to kill someone wearing fur, according to an FBI affidavit.
Lowell wrote she wanted the killing to take place in a library near her home, across from a playground, and told the agent she did not have the money promised, but did have some gold jewelry. She eventually moved “the hit” to October 2012 and offered the agent $100 to do the job.
Lowell said the person should die in less than two minutes and needed to be, “older than 12 — preferably older than 14 years old,” FBI documents said. The person also “should not be anyone I currently know and definitely should not be anyone my family knows,” Lowell wrote in one exchange.
Thankfully Federal agents arrested Lowell at home, and she’s being charged with solicitation to commit murder.
