We have to duck out for a few hours, to work on a big Wired piece that’s simmering on our front burner. Back as soon as possible; in the interim, please enjoy the above “gotcha!” clip of Dalia Dippolito, who was recently busted for trying to get her husband offed. Like so many murder-for-hire amateurs, Dippolito unwittingly found herself steered toward an undercover cop posing as a hitman. If only she’d read out latest Murder Project post, she might have realized that the $3,000 figure she was quoted was far too low. And that realization might have saved her the above embarrassment—being caught on camera faking tears over her husband’s fictional murder. Though, truth be told, we do find her act quite convincing.
