Dalia Dippolito Jail Booking Report
Boynton Beach, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Dalia Dippolito, a 26-year-old Boynton Beach newlywed was arrested Wednesday after she allegedly conspired to have her new husband murdered. What she didn't know was that the hit man she allegedly tried to hire was an undercover detective.
According to Boynton Beach Police, Dippolito conspired with what she thought was a hit man who would carry out her murder-for-hire plans.
She reportedly offered an undercover detective $6,000 to murder her husband of six months, 38-year old Michael Dippolito. She allegedly told the would-be hit man "I will be very happy" as she laughed at the prospect of his demise.
After Dippolito provided the undercover detective pictures of her husband, keys to her residence and $1,200 in advance to purchase a handgun - a date for the man's murder was established. The detective even met with Dippolito a second time to make sure she wanted her husband dead.
"I'm not going to change my mind," she reportedly told the detective. " I am 5,000 percent sure I want it done. When I set my mind to something, I get it done."
Authorities then staged a crime scene to make it appear her husband had murdered just as she had planned. The scene was elaborate - complete with crime scene tape and patrol cars blocking off traffic to the couple's home. Detectives called Dippolito while she was at a gym and somberly informed her she needed to come home for some bad news.
Boynton Beach authorities captured the payoff on video - Dippolito arrived at her home and then appeared distraught as officers informed her of her husband's death. Meanwhile, Michael Dippolito was safe in protective custody.
In the video, Dalia Dippolito broke down in tears - expressing complete shock at the news of her husbands death. Officers consoled her and asked her to come down to the police station with them to make a statement. What Dippolito didn't know was that she was headed for jail.
"I'm just disappointed," Michael Dippolito told local reporters. "There's no reason for it. Just divorce me and take everything."
Mr. Dippolito, who is still partially in disbelief over the reality of his near-death experience, told reporters "It's like a movie. It's believable, yet unbelievable."
Dalia Dippolito was booked into the Palm County Jail on charges of premeditated homicide and solicitation to commit murder. She is currently being held without bond.
