Squaddie downs cyanide pills after hitmen he’d hired failed to murder his wife

A soldier took cyanide to end his life when a plot to murder his wife, so he could be with his mistress, failed.

The Indonesian Military said one of their own took his life after the four hitmen he hired to carry out the crime were unsuccessful.

Referred to as Second Corporal M, the soldier reportedly hired the hitmen on July 18, who then attempted to carry out the botched hit in front of her daughter.

One of the hitmen fired four rounds at his wife, referred to as RW, but none of the shots were fatal.

M even had the audacity to borrow money from his mother-in-law, telling her that he needed it for RW’s hospital bills.

Instead, he used the money to pay the hitmen, who still partially charged him for the failed attempt, before taking the rest for his life on the lam.

M left his home in Semarang, Central Java and was a fugitive for over a week before he was found dead in his parents’ home in Kendal, Central Java on July 28.

Diponegoro 4th Regional Military Command spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Bambang Hermanto confirmed that an internal investigation found M committed suicide by drinking cyanide.

“The toxicology report showed that his urine sample, brain, left kidney, heart, and left lung contained the poison cyanide,” he said in Semarang.

Lt Col Bambang added that there were no signs of violence on M’s body, which leaves suicide as the only plausible explanation for his death.

In addition, M left a suicide note for his wife and children.

He had also confided with his parents about his shame and that he was no longer able to live with himself.

RW was discharged from hospital in August.

The hitmen, meanwhile, were charged with premeditated murder attempt, which is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
