Second Silk Road Indictment Details Ulbright's Attempt To Have Former Silk Road Employee Killedby Mike Masnick
Oct. 03, 2013
So a lot of attention has been paid to the criminal complaint filed in NY against Ross Ulbricht, the alleged creator and owner of Silk Road. One of the more fascinating parts is the supposed plan to hire a hit man to kill a Silk Road user who was trying to extort Ulbricht, threatening him with revealing a large list of Silk Road users. However, as Ken White pointed out, it seemed slightly odd that the complaint describes a the murder-for-hire, but doesn't charge Ulbricht with that murder-for-hire. Now, Parker Higgins alerts us to the news that there's a separate indictment against Ulbright, filed in Maryland for a different attempted contract killing, and it's pretty crazy too.
