Florida Woman Arrested For Trying To Hire A Hitman To Kill Her 3-Year-Old Son Miami-Date Corrections

A Florida woman was arrested after she allegedly tried to hire a hitman to kill her 3-year-old son using the spoof website, hireahitman.com. Jazmin Paez, 18, was taken into custody on July 18 after her the site’s owner turned her in to Miami-Dade police, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by NBC News reports. She even submitted a photo of her son, an address for where they lived, and a safe word for the killer, which was “Put me in, coach.”

  1. An officer from MDPD stepped in to pretend to be the hitman. He reached out to Jazmin Paez in a text exchange, and the officer agreed to accept $3,000 for the murder, the affidavit revealed.
  2. Unsurprisingly, Paez was arrested and charged. She now faces charges of first-degree solicitation of murder and unlawful use of a communications device. As her attorney didn’t respond to calls for comment, it’s unclear how she intends to plead. However, she did apparently confess in an interview with police, per Law & Crime.
  3. Jazmin Paez didn’t act alone. A second suspect, 18-year-old Gamaliel Soza, was arrested in August 2023. He was charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and unlawful use of a communications device.
  4. Gamaliel Soza pressured Paez to have the child killed. Texts he sent her show it was his idea to get rid of Paez’s son so that they could be together. “The kid is the problem. I hope you see that all I ever wanted, was to free you. I told you about the kid. You won’t do anything,” one message stated. In another, Soza said he wouldn’t consider resuming his relationship with Paez until her son was dead, writing, “You do it, and I’ll think about coming back.”
  5. Soza was given a bond of $15,000. He was ordered not to have any contact with Paez’s child or any child under the age of 18, per WTVJ. Paez was given the same terms and is not allowed contact with her son.
