|Florida inmate offers $15K, sports car for someone to kill child victim and witnesses|
POLK COUNTY, Fla. — A Florida inmate has been charged with trying to hire a hitman to kill his child victim and witnesses in exchange for $15,000 and a sports car.
Richard Palmer, 26, who is in the Polk County Jail for lewd and lascivious acts on a child under 12 years of age, asked a cellmate if he knew anyone who would be willing to kill the child and witnesses in his case in exchange for $15,000 and a sports car, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office.
Palmer went on to tell his cellmate that he wanted the hired hitman to burn the home after murdering the victim and witnesses "to destroy evidence." He said he wanted it done so they couldn't go to court because "he didn't want to spend the rest of his life in prison."
