Getting jealous of an ex is perfectly normal. That jealousy may lead us to do some stupid things, but Brenda Delgado from Dallas took that to a whole new and violent level. The only woman on the FBI's Most Wanted List, Delgado has been apprehended in Mexico for orchestrating the murder of her ex's girlfriend Kendra Hatcher.
According to Jezebel, Delgado was indicted on capital murder charges for plotting the murder of a Dallas dentist her former boyfriend was dating. She paid two accomplices in cash and drugs to shoot and kill Hatcher in a parking garage after she found out that Hatcher and her ex were planning to take a vacation together. She then fled to Mexico when she was questioned about the murder.
Thomas Class Sr. of the FBI’s Dallas precinct said, "Although she didn’t pull the trigger herself, she is still responsible for the murder," CNN reports. Delgado was arrested in Torreón, Mexico on Friday after being placed on the Most Wanted List only two days prior.
Delgado is only the ninth woman to ever appear on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted Fugitives List, and she was the only woman on it at the time of her arrest.
While only Delgado had a $100,000 reward attached to her name during the search, her co-conspirators have also been arrested. Dallas litigators originally wanted the death penalty for Delgado, but they had to remove that to get her extradited from Mexico. Now they're seeking life in prison.
Delgado's crime is deplorable in every sense of the word, but let her actions be the ultimate example of how not to deal with your ex-induced jealousy.
