He hired a hit man to kill his co-worker: “Both were lovers of the boss”

A woman arrived in 2015 at her new job at a well-known sportswear store. The young woman, who was 20 years old at the time, was attracted to her boss, which would later trigger a love trio. The story was recorded in the UK.

General manager, james perst who is a married man with two children, wasted no time in asking out Whitney Franks and, a year after they met, they secretly began a romance. As it became known after the investigation, she knew that he was not going to separate, that her relationship would only remain in hiding, but, in 2017, the arrival of a new worker at SportsDirect changed everything.

the young Ruut Ruutna she joined the office, and weeks later she, too, began dating James Perst. Franks agreed to be the mistress of her boss, but when she found out about the rumors of a new romance in the company, she decided to follow them at night.

Consequently, his transfer to another location was determined. Whitney was left out of the field and Perst was free to start a new affair, also clandestine, with Ruutna. The manager did not imagine that it would not be so easy to get rid of his ex-lover.

Away from the previous branch, he sought to win back Perst’s affections. “On September 1, 2018, Franks sent another email to James Perst begging him to rekindle their relationship,” the prosecutor said.

The prosecutor in charge of the unusual case, Andrew Copeland stated, “This email was more positive in nature and made reference to past sexual activity between the two and concluded with a plea to give it another chance.”

Then I use a more intense strategy. Whitney went to the office of her ‘rival’ and confronted her. On August 17, 2020, the young woman appeared at the Sports Direct headquarters, where she used to work before her transfer.

According to the prosecutor’s statement, James Perst did not like the female’s attitude. “He was clearly upset and she responded with a comment about him hanging around at night,” she explained. After getting no results, she decided to go to the extreme.

The story of infidelity and betrayal left Whitney so “unbridled jealous” that she plunged into the deep web and tried to hire a hitman for $1,200, she would pay her hitman with cryptocurrencies, according to the British media outlet The Sun.

He posted Ruutna’s home address and Facebook profile. “I am looking for the murder of a woman. I have £1,000 and am willing to pay more. This woman has caused a lot of trouble for me and others. Please can you help me figure this out?”, she requested herself on the internet.

Copeland stated: “She wanted to get her rival out of the way. Whitney Franks and Ruut Ruutna were co-workers, in charge of James Perst, who was general manager (…) They were not only co-workers, but love rivals of James Perst and both had a romantic relationship with him at the same time ” .

Before the court of the city of Reading, the judicial authority related: “Both knew that Perst had a stable couple with two small children and that he was not willing to leave that relationship or their children. They weren’t worried about it, the women were fighting each other.”

Whitney was grossly careless. Her post could be seen by hitmen, but also by other people. And that’s how a BBC journalist, Carl Miller, saw her notice and alerted the police.

The investigation continued and Whitney Franks was arrested on September 10, 2020. The judge recently sentenced Franks to 12 years in prison. She will have to serve two-thirds of the sentence before she is eligible for parole.
