Murder for hire plots, conspiracy to commit murder, and contract killings may seem like something that only happens in the Mafia, but Oregon has had more than its fair share of these cases.
Within the pages of this book are some of the most egregious murder for hire plots that have occurred in Oregon in the past fifty years, including: a woman who killed the hitman her husband hired to kill her; the executionstyle murder of two adults and two young children; a family who was placed in protective custody due to a contract on their lives; a woman who hired two hitmen to wire her husband’s car with dynamite; the contract killings for two police detectives; the murder for hire of a young mother; and the conspiracy to kill the U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon.
