Infamous Murder-For-Hire Attempts

These infamous cases sent the criminals to prison for their murder-to-hire schemes.

An adult film actress from Idaho has been arrested for allegedly being the mastermind behind a murder-for-hire plot.

Katrina L. Danforth, 31, who has done adult film work under the names Lynn Pleasant and Lynn Passion was arrested at Spokane International Airport in Washington State, according to The Associated Press.

The intended victim lives in Idaho and was not harmed, according to prosecutors. They were named only as “R.H.” in the indictment.

Danforth has been charged with five counts of using interstate commerce in the commission of murder for hire. She allegedly used both the telephone and the mail as ways to hire someone to kill the intended target, the Spokesman-Review reports.

The indictment alleges that Danforth attempted to commission the murder on five separate dates in October and November of 2018.

“I don’t really know, precisely …” Danforth told local outlet KHQ when asked when she was arrested. She said she was shocked over the allegations. “I would just say more stand by and [...] follow along with me and find out what goes on and how it goes.”

She made eight adult films between 2005 and 2010, her IMDb page states.

In 2016, she tweeted that she is available for phone sex; on her Instagram profile, she refers to herself as a porn star from North Dakota.

Danforth could face up to 10 years in prison and $250,000 fine for each of the five offenses.

The actress will be in federal court on Friday for a detention hearing.
