Are you keen to poke your spouse? Are you dying to get rid of your work competitor? Then I have the website for you. Called Besa Mafia, it is accessible via the Dark Web and offers hitman-for-hire services. Just pay your money and place your order. As detailed in How to Hire a Hitman (Channel 4) the site is the murderous equivalent of a pizza delivery service.
So there’s your “simple murder” for around £7,000, but you can add extra toppings. If you want it to look like an accident, it will cost you more. There is the premium option of death by sniper (“if your target is an important person who has bodyguards who carry a gun, you may need a sniper who can kill him from a safe distance”). Of course, you might just want to scare someone rather than murder them. In that case, just click on the “Break bones badly or cut off limbs” option.
If you think this all sounds ridiculous – a Hitman website, complete with a FAQ tab and some hilarious, shonky videos claiming to show their assassins at work – then you’d be right. The big reveal of the documentary was that the site was fake and run by a scammer who stole fools from their money, but I think most of us had figured it out by then.
Where should the documentation go from here? Well, as moderator Yinka Bokinni pointed out, people who paid money for this website believed it to be real. Leaks from the website showed nearly 300 people tried to arrange killings. She chose to focus on Stephen Allwine, a Minnesota man who ordered his wife’s murder.
After realizing the killer didn’t exist, he killed her himself. Bokinni is a young DJ and “true crime enthusiast” whose presentation style is influenced by podcasts. “Is this our reality now? Whose name could be on a list? Anyone watching this show? she asked dramatically, staring straight into the camera. But her enthusiasm and informal style kept the documentary from faltering when the footage didn’t live up to its bill.
