New Jersey Man Attempted to Hire a Hitman on the Darkweb

In a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Jersey, prosecutors accused John Michael Musbach, 31, of hiring a hitman in an attempt to kill one of his teenage victims. According to the statement, Musbach found and contacted a site advertising murder for hire on the darkweb. He paid the site administrator $40,000 in Bitcoin to carry out the hit.

Musbach, in 2015, developed an online relationship with a then 13-year-old. Investigators learned that Musbach and the 13-year-old had exchanged sexually explicit videos and photographs of themselves. In March 2016, Atlantic City police officers arrested Musbach on child pornography charges. In late 2017, Musbach pleaded guilty to endangering the welfare of a child by sexual contact. He received a two-year prison sentence and a lifetime on parole.

In January 2019, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in Newark, New Jersey, received information from a source about an onion service that advertised contract killings. Although law enforcement did not include the name of the website in the court documents, many readers will recognize the site after reading the advertisement on the site’s homepage:

“If you want to kill someone, or to beat the shit out of him, we are the right guys. We have professional hitmen available throughout the entire USA, Canada, and Europe and you can hire a contract killer easily. Most of our gang members are drug dealers but they do contract killing when they are short on cash. No undercover cops here. No risks of getting caught, because we are professional killers: We don’t ask you for your name, we don’t want to know who you are or where you live… You pay in Bitcoin to escrow, and money is held in escrow until the job is done.”

Besa Mafia is the site Musbach allegedly used to hire a hitman. Besa Mafia was one of the many fraudulent murder for hire sites operated by a fraudster known as “Yura.” Besa Mafia is no longer active but Yura has no shortage of nearly identical sites that advertise the same services.

HSI’s source provided investigators with some of the private conversations between the administrators of Besa Mafia and the site’s customers. The source—someone with experience providing law enforcement with information about Yura’s customers—had hacked the site and scraped private conversations. Included in the scrape was a conversation between the site’s administrator and an individual using the username “agentsai.” HSI later identified “agentsai as Musbach.
