Angela Voelkert thought she could get a small dirt on her husband using a fake Facebook profile. She uncovered something far more sinister, affirm authorities.
The 29-year-ancient Indiana woman made a faux Facebook account that appeared to belong to a teenage girl. Using the profile, she started conversing with her soon-to-be ex-husband, who seemed more than ready to place an end to an already messy divorce. According to the Fresh York Advertise, David, 38, allegedly confessed through Facebook that he had not only planted a GPS tracking device on his wife’s van, however was using it to pinpoint the perfect location where he would have her killed.
“I am going to find someone to capture attention of her and immediately it will be simpler since I know where she is at all times,” he allegedly wrote.
He reportedly questioned the “girl” on Facebook if she knew any “gang-bangers” at her college that would do the job for $10,000, according to the Advertise.
Fox News reported that the identity of the girl Voelkert used for the profile picture, and from where she obtained the the photo, is unknown.
“Once she is gone, I don’t have to hide with my kids,” Voelkert’s husband wrote, according to court papers. “I can do what I desire and not have to worry about not seeing my family anymore. You should find someone at your college. There should be some gang-bangers there that would place a cap in her ass for $10,000. I am done with her crap!”
This is the second murder attempt that seems to have been uncovered using Facebook in the past two days.
UPDATE: It seems David has been released from custody after proving he knew the profile was Voelkert, reports the Smoking Gun.
To support this contention, Voelkert provided FBI agents with a May 25 notarized affidavit in which he describes receiving a friend request from “Jessica Studebaker,” whom he suspected was his ex-wife. “I am lying to this person,” he stated, “to gain positive proof that it is indeed my ex-wife trying to again tamper in my lifetime.” He added, “In no path do I have plans to leave with my children or do any harm to Angela Dawn Voelkert or anyone else.”
The allegedly incriminating Facebook messages sent by Voelkert came on May 31, six days after his sworn affidavit was notarized. Voelkert kept one copy of the affidavit, and gave a relative a second copy for safekeeping.
