A Florida teen was arrested after he allegedly hired a hitman to kill a staff member at his high school.
Fox 13 Tampa reports 18-year-old Nicolas Godfrey was arrested and charged with solicitation to commit murder after hiring a hitman to kill a staff member of Fivay High School for $100,000. Godrey asked another student on Instagram if they could carry out the job and said: “No joke, I need him eliminated as soon as possible.”
The Pasco Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that Godfrey confessed to sending the messages after investigators obtained a warrant for his Instagram account and used the IP address to track his address.
Principal Jason Joens posted on the school’s official Facebook page about the situation and thanked the investigators for preventing a tragedy.
“I want to thank the Pasco Sheriff’s Office and Corporal Josh Peters for their intensive work and resources used to identify and arrest this student,”
