An inmate in a Florida prison, offered a fellow prisoner, a neo-Nazi, $9,000 to murder a family of five who were involved in his sexual battery case involving a 9-year-old girl, authorities say.
Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said he received a tip from the Land O Lakes detention center on August 22, of a neo-Nazi prisoner who said Billy Warren Pierce, Jr. came up to him and asks him to commit mass murder.
The inmate told officers that Pierce, 44, believed he was capable of the murders because he was a member of the Aryan Brotherhood, FOX 4 reported.
Pierce, who is awaiting trial for 2017, the costs of sexual assault of the 9-year-old, told the would-be murderer that he knew his victim and her family well and provided him with their address and the description of the police say. He also told the inmate where the family worked and hung, entering their house, and what cars they drove, authorities said.
He also said that the inmate that family members are never locked, the garage door and that there was a dog door in the house that he could crawl through, deputies said.
“He could break the gas line and enter it in a window so that the gas leakage in the house,” the arrest affidavit said.
Last week, deputies said they caught audio-recordings of Pierce’s approach of the other prisoner to commit the murders, and even the signing of a contract.
When Pierce was arrested for solicitation to commit murder, he reportedly told delegates: “But I have not paid him the money yet.”
