26-year-old Dalia Dippolito has looks that could kill – and a apparently a personality to match. The newlywed from Boynton Beach was arrested this morning for hiring someone to kill her husband. There was one small problem- man she hired was an undercover Boynton Beach police officer.
Police say Dippolito was seeking to hire someone to do the dirty deed and Friday night they were tipped off by a confidential informant. The next day she met with the informant at a nearby gas station to discuss terms. She allegedly paid $1,200 in order for the fake hit man to buy a gun- and later agreed to pay $3,000 when the deed was done. She handed over pictures of her husband and their home.
Boynton Beach police called Dalia while she was working out at LA Fitness this morning. When she rushed home there were tons of cops and crime scene tape all around her home – to make it look like he had really been shot. When the police informed her she started sobbing and saying “No, no!” and even sought comfort in the police officer’s arms. She was then escorted to the police station where she quickly found out the jig was up.
Dalia and her husband Michael Dippolito were married last January – one day after he divorced his previous wife. From all appearances, he’s no angel either.
She even talked about going to have her hair done the day of the murder for a solid alibi.
Police say that “Darling Dalia” was insistent and three times stated that she absolutely wanted her husband killed.
