A woman from Orlando, Florida, who was jailed for making murder threats recently tried to hire fellow inmates to kill her own family in a murder-for-hire plot that would bag her a $2 million inheritance.
Tureygua Inaru, 29, made the threats while in custody. She has been in jail since December for threatening to kill her former co-workers at Disney. Police say she then allegedly recruited her cellmates to carry out the murder-for-hire plot targeting her parents and grandparents.
According to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, Inaru reportedly offered $50,000 per victim to anyone who would kill her relatives and even gave instructions on how to make the murders look like a robbery gone wrong.
If she couldn’t find anyone to commit the murders, Inaru allegedly said she would “gladly do it herself.”
In addition, Inaru used social media to cyberstalk Assistant State Attorney Peter Francis Donnelly, who was prosecuting her case, according to court filings. She allegedly said she “wanted him to suffer” and didn’t care if his family died, too.
Osceola County Sheriff Marco Lopez told WESH News that Inaru told her cellmates that her parents were wealthy, and she would receive a $2 million inheritance upon their deaths, according to an affidavit. The affidavit also revealed that Inaru claimed her parents molested her and her siblings when they were children.
However, one of her family members told the police that Inaru “needs mental health help.”
In January, the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office sent an undercover detective disguised as an inmate into Inaru’s jail cell. Inaru told the officer about her dislike for the prosecutor, but denied trying to hire a hitman. However, during a subsequent interview with investigators, Inaru allegedly admitted to plotting to have her family wiped out.
On Monday, Inaru was charged with three counts of solicitation to premeditated murder and one count of cyberstalking for allegedly sending death threats to Donnelly.
She remains jailed without bond and is due back in court in May. During her initial court appearance this week, Inaru asked the presiding judge to state his name. When he did, she replied, “Good to know,” with a smirk on her face, according to WFTV.
