SHERIFF'S OFFICE FOILS MURDER FOR HIRE PLOT
Centerville, Mo, January 5, 2014: In December 2013 the Reynolds County Sheriff’s Office received information that Cassandra Rayfield had contacted an individual about finding someone to kill her ex-boyfried.
On January 3, 2014, an undercover deputy met with Rayfield where a discussion ensued about paying for the murder of her ex-boyfriend. During the meeting money was exchanged as well as photographs of the victim and directions to their residence. Rayfield stated that she wanted the ex-boyfriend killed because of an ongoing custody dispute.
After Rayfield left the meeting area she was arrested and transported to the Reynolds County Sheriff’s Office where she was booked into the jail. Rayfield was charged with Attempted Murder 1st degree and bond was set at $500,000 cash only.
Sheriff Volner wants to thank the St Francois County Sheriff’s Office and Ellington Police Department for their assistance in the successful and peaceful resolution to what could have been a bad situation.
