Feds Thwart NYPD Officer’s Murder For Hire Plot
A New York man said he was shocked to learn his estranged wife of four years, a New York Police Department officer, was allegedly plotting to hire a hit man to murder him.
But that’s what federal law enforcement agents told Isaiah Carvalho Jr. when they showed up at his door Friday and asked him to stage his own death as part of a sting operation against his wife, Valerie Cincinelli.
“I didn’t want to believe it, but apparently it’s true,” Carvalho, 32, told ABC’s “Good Morning America” in an interview that aired Wednesday.
“I was shocked,” he added. “I didn’t know how to react.”
Federal prosecutors say Cincinelli, 34, told her boyfriend in February that she wanted him to hire a hit man to kill his teenage daughter and Carvalho, who filed for divorce a month earlier. She allegedly gave her boyfriend $7,000 to pay the assassin.
But the boyfriend, who is not named in the complaint filed Friday in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, did not follow through with the scheme. Instead, he alerted police and agreed to have his conversations with Cincinelli recorded by the FBI.
Cincinelli, a mother of two and 12-year NYPD veteran, told her boyfriend she would be at home when the killings were carried out and would have an alibi, according to the complaint. She later said Carvalho should be killed near his job in Long Island because the area is “ghetto” and the murder wouldn’t cast suspicion on her.
On May 17, FBI agents informed Carvalho of his wife’s plan and asked him to help fake his death as part of the investigation.
Feds then sent photos to the NYPD officer pretending to be the ‘hit man’ showing her proof her husband was dead. The officer says this is a setup plot from her boyfriend but reports say that Cincinelli’s boyfriend agreed to wear a wire and tape their conversations. So, there might be more evidence of her guilt that has not yet been released to the public.
