Man Asks Co-Worker To Hire A Hitman Because He’s Black

Man Asks Co-Worker To Hire A Hitman Because He's Black

( 4UMF NEWS ) Man Asks Co-Worker To Hire A Hitman Because He’s Black:

An ignorant Indiana man will stand trial after allegedly offering his black co-worker $15,000 to kill his estranged wife, foolishly believing he had the right hit man for the job.

“You’re black,” Stephen Perry, 27, allegedly told his colleague, Adrian Howard, according to a probable cause affidavit. “I know ya’ll know people.”

Allegedly, the statement led Howard, who worked with Perry at a Valvoline Instant Oil Change in suburban Indianapolis, to record two conversations with the plotting husband, the Indianapolis Star reported.

Howard went to Perry’s wife, Allison Mayer, with the evidence, and police nabbed Perry in late December on a charge of conspiracy to commit murder. The couple were reportedly in the midst of a heated divorce battle.

Perry, of Carmel, is being held on a $250,000 bond with a pre-trial hearing scheduled for March 12.
Howard initially believed Perry was joking when he asked about whether he would kill his wife or could arrange her death for him.

But on Dec. 8, Howard recorded the conversations in which Perry allegedly offered him $15,000 and a machine to print counterfeit money.

“I just want this to be over and done with. So if she dies, I can drop the divorce lawsuit,” Perry said, according to a recording described in the affidavit. “She’s dead, and I’m free.”

A message seeking comment was left Thursday for Perry’s attorney, Jason Jackson of Noblesville.

Mayer told officers that she and Perry were $200,000 in debt, mostly due to her living expenses and college tuition. She said she and Perry had been married since December 2009 but that he moved out in March 2012 and filed for divorce about two months later.

Prosecutors say the couple’s divorce was complicated by a dispute over an inheritance left by Perry’s mother, who died in October 2011.

In addition, Mayer told police that Perry believed she owed him $15,000 and had told people she had stolen it from him.

According to the affidavit, Perry had provided his co-worker a paper with his estranged wife’s name and address and explained that his wife was living with her grandparents.

He allegedly offered to draw the man a map of the grandparents’ home, saying he only wanted his wife slain and not her grandparents.

He was also recorded telling the man he wanted to make sure the family dog was not injured, according to the affidavit.

“You hurt my dog, the deal’s off,” Perry allegedly said.
