Cops helped a Houston, Texas, man fake his own murder to trap his wife who was trying to kill him, according to an article published Tuesday.
The Texas Rangers and the FBI painted bloody makeup on Ramon Sosa, 50, a boxing coach, to trick Sosa’s wife Maria ‘Lulu’ Sosa. The wife allegedly hired a hitman to kill him, reported the Daily Mail.
The couple who were happily married for eight years before the relationship grew tense in 2015 due to financial woes.
Lulu Sosa, 43, reached out a guy named Gustavo* to see if he could help her find a hitman. She was offering $2,000 to have her husband killed, allegedly for “financial reasons,” according to the husband.
Unknown to Lulu, Gustavo was a friend of Ramon’s. Ramon had coached the man the past.
Gustavo told Ramon about the incident. They decided for Gustavo to wear a wire and tape the wife offering money for the killing. They turning the evidence over to police at Montgomery County Police Station in Houston.
“Gustavo told me she was clearly serious and had held her fingers to her head, in a gun-firing gesture,” said Sosa.
Authorities drove Sosa to the desert, and placed him in a shallow grave. They made it look like a bullet was shot in his right temple and blood streaming down his face, reported Metro. Photos were released under Open Request. Authorities hid Ramon in a hotel for three days.
Ramon says he will “never be the same man again” adding that “lying in the dirt, pretending to be dead, was terrifying.”
An undercover police officer posed as a hitman showing the pictures to the wife. Lulu pleaded guilty Oct. 2016 to solicitation of murder.
Officials sentenced her to 20 years in prison.
