After the sting operation, Linda and Det. Kerwin became unlikely friends. "He can't get away from me," Linda says. Kerwin says that if more people in rougher neighborhoods would step out and speak up like Linda did, the city would be safer.
While detectives watched, Linda met Manny to discuss the hit. Their meeting was joined unexpectedly, however, by someone called "Axeman." Linda says that he looked at her in a way that made her suspect he might kill her once she completed the ostensible hit.
People tended to think Linda McNeil was "tough" or "hard." She was taken aback, though, when Joseph "Manny" White gave her a call asking her to kill his wife. He could do it himself, he said, but needed a woman for the job.
Linda was uncomfortable with the way Manny was describing how he wanted his wife "cut up" — and with following him down an alley while police were surveilling. But, she didn't have a choice, and police were left eyeless for a time.

Ron brought Justin DeWitt's murder for hire plot to police despite his bad relationship with North Liberty law enforcement. The fact that he spoke with a relatively new detective helped, he said. Still, police would need some sort of verification if they were to trust Robi.
When Sunny gave undercover Lt. Patterson her wedding band, that sealed the murder for hire plot as an "overt act." He recalls the "elation" on her face when she realized she wouldn't have to explain the missing ring to anyone — because her husband would be dead.
