Kindergarten Teacher, School Nurse Held in Murder-for-Hire Plot

Source: ABC News and Yahoo

A Virginia elementary school teacher and a school nurse are facing charges in what police are calling a murder-for-hire plot.

Angela Nolen, a 47-year-old kindergarten teacher, was arrested Wednesday for allegedly plotting to hire a hit man to kill her ex-husband for $8,000. According to police, Nolen's friend 37-year-old Cathy Bennett, a school nurse, worked with Nolen to find a hit man.

According to the Franklin County Sheriff's Office, Nolen's plan unraveled when she gave a police officer, working under cover as a hit man, an up-front fee of $4,000 to kill her ex-husband, 63-year-old Paul Strickler.

Strickler, who is the father of Nolen's 7-year-old daughter, told the Roanoke Times he had been working on a deal to sell his house to Nolen.

1. Not exactly mom of the year is she?

strange how seemingly normal people will resort to violence and criminal conspiracy because they're greedy. I wonder about Bennett. Was she involved just to help out her friend, or was she in it for the money? Bizarre story.

2. And who is taking about arming teachers?

I teach and, for anyone who doesn't know it, teachers are just as human as the rest of us. And some are downright effed up.

5. My thought precisely -- And there are some who want to indiscriminately arm these people? . . .

4. Are there any hitmen outside the mob that are not really cops?

Maybe. I guess.

6. What makes you think the hitmen in the mob are not cops, too?

Some cops were put in prison a few years ago because they worked as mob hit men.

8. Not 'hitmen' in the Hollywood movie sense, but yes.

There are a lot of people who will kill someone for 8,000 dollars sadly. For less even. Probably at least a few in every town. Check the news; these types of murders are not uncommon.

7. These two hapless

ladies, have led a sheltered life from what I am reading between the lines. That's my opinion. I have known members of some very notorious and dubious organizations, that for much less money, would/could do something like that. These wonderfully stupid people were probably afraid of "gangsters of color" and looked for a "more civilized" approach. Of course all conjecture and hyperbole is solely mine.

9. She filed a protective order against her husband and had sole custody of their daughter

Something else going on here besides money, perhaps?

10. Another reason that outsourcing is just stupid.

Just do it yourself, people.
You don't have to prove you weren't there, but the prosecution does have to prove you were there.
