Hadeed allegedly sent three letters with instructions and told the intended hit man to signal acceptance by marking sheets of paper on a storefront window. On Nov. 10, 2021, Hadeed reportedly sent the intended hit man $10,000, pictures of the person he wanted killed, the victim’s address, schedule, and a deadline for the murder.
Evidence was uncovered during a secondary customs inspection of Hadeed when he came back to the United States from an international trip, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. He was reportedly arrested, and a case was filed against him in December 2021.
Hadeed’s former girlfriend’s lover and intended victim is still alive, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
Hadeed is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 26 and faces up to 10 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.
