ACT woman charged after allegedly organising parents murder on dark web

A woman has been charged after allegedly attempting to organise for her parents to be murdered using contract killers she found on the dark web.

The 26-year-old is accused of agreeing to pay $20,000 for the contract killings and contributing $6000 towards the sum before it was all foiled by an international journalist.

Detectives launched an investigation in October after receiving a tip-off from a reporter in the UK, who claimed the woman had made an online payment and shared details about her targets.

Police believe the website was fraudulent but the woman’s intentions were genuine.
