A Florida man hired a hit man to kill his ex-girlfriend. The man blamed Black Lives Matter.
A man named Daniel Slater, 51, living in Florida, made a deal with the hit man and was found guilty of murder. According to NBC News, Slater not only mediated the murder of his ex-girlfriend and her husband in their West Palm Beach home, but also blamed the deaths on Black Lives Matter.
The statement, detailed by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District, was released on July 9.
According to the report, Slater contacted the hitman in May and June to kill his ex-girlfriend and her husband. Slater and the hitman plotted where and how the murders would take place. They devised a plan, involving a third party, to make the murders seem riotous.
Slater and the hitman came to the victim’s house to discuss which window to shoot through. Slater also told him to paint the victim’s house so that the murders appear to be linked to Black Live Matters.
Slater first offered cocaine to the hitman in exchange for the murders. He then agreed to clear his past debt and pay a third party for subcontracting the murder. However, the man’s partner was an informant working for the FBI and an FBI agent on the hitman.
Slater’s thoughts went beyond blaming Black Lives Matter. Slater wanted to pour acid on his victims’ faces, break their teeth, and hurt the woman’s sister.
The hitman Slater agreed with said he killed the victims on June 12 and showed him photoshoped pictures. Slater paid $400 and promised the remainder.
Slater was someone who had others do his dirty work. The cops first followed him after a woman he hired to spy on his ex-girlfriend, kidnap and kill his partners, was later found dead.
Slater pleaded guilty in exchange for authorities dropping some of his charges and is expected to appear in court on September 16.
