A woman who in January allegedly tried paying a “dark-web” company at least $10,000 in the encrypted digital currency bitcoin to kill the wife of the man with whom she had been having an affair was a nurse at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, according to a report in the Daily Herald.

The husband, the paper reported, is an anesthesiologist who completed his residency at the Maywood hospital.

Tina Jones, 31, lived in Des Plaines. Law enforcement officials reportedly got a tip from “48 Hours,” the news magazine on CBS, earlier this month about the plot.

According to reports, the “dark web” is an online space that hides users identity and location.

Per a CNBC report: “It’s basically just ‘a series of encrypted networks that serve to anonymize peoples’ use on the internet,’ said Matthew Swensen, a Special Agent for the Department of Homeland Security with an expertise in cyber crimes.”

“It’s relatively easy for anyone to access this encrypted network. All it takes is downloading darknet software.”

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Jones turned herself into authorities on April 17. She’s since been charged with solicitation for murder-for-hire and is being held on $250,000 bail, according to various reports. VFP

  1. It is sad that Ms. Jones’s youthful emotional indiscretions may have robbed her of her freedom, while the other participant is free to find another. Emotions are void of reason or logic . In war, the enemy can provoke emotional responses towards you to cause you not to think…. and get you killed. The road you follow in life is based on choices. Choose Life. No one’s perfect but “God”. I Thank God, that in my life.. I’ve made more good choices that bad ones !
