    If it wasn't the lead story in the LA Times, I'd think it was a joke.

    I'm still trying to figure out how you take contracts, attempt repeated extortion, MAKE RICIN AND TRAVEL WITH IT, and do these things in both the US and Ireland and get away with a prison sentence that is likely to get you out of jail in 2013? And commit bigamy.

    Admittedly, the guy sounds incompetent, but....

    Wow. This is one of the strangest murder-for-hire stories I've ever read. I also missed something. Who did they use the ricin on and did they make it wrong if no one died?

    Unbelieveable! That woman was lucky, he could have just killed her.
