Ohio and Florida get all the credit, but let’s not forget about the dead jellyfish mecca known as New Jersey when it comes to stories involving crazy, trashy people. Today’s installment involves former-Keyport, NJ, resident Julia Merfeld, who was caught on tape hiring an undercover Michigan police officer to be her hitman (for $50,000), proving that although you can take the girl out of New Jersey, you can’t take the New Jersey out of the girl.
“If you can get him outside, that would be great,” a giggly Julia Merfeld said after agreeing to the $50,000 hit — only to later learn she was speaking with an undercover Michigan state police detective.
“But if you absolutely can’t, I’ll understand,” she added. “Because it would be messy in the house.”
“Terrible as it sounds, it was easier than divorcing him,” [Merfeld] explained about her lethal choice…“It’s going to break my heart when it happens, but it’s something that I’ve been thinking about for awhile.” (Via)
Merfeld pleaded guilty to solicitation for murder and faces a minimum of six years in prison, where she’ll never be able to watch Timothy Olyphant in Hitman again.
