AG to investigate murder-for-hire plot in Chippewa County

LANSING — Attorney General Bill Schuette announced Monday the Attorney General’s Criminal Division will investigate an allegation of a possible murder-for-hire involving an Aramark employee.

“This is a serious allegation. Our team is reviewing the evidence and materials in this case and conducting an independent and thorough investigation,” said Schuette.  “We will follow the facts, without fear or favor.  If upon conclusion of our investigation we find that legal action is warranted, we will not hesitate to pursue justice.”

This investigation results from a request from the Michigan State Police Sault Ste. Marie Post to the Department of the Attorney General involving a complaint of a solicitation for murder.
