Will you kill my ex? I'll give you a pool.

The woman wanted a hit-man to murder an ex-boyfriend who wanted custody of one of her children. Before offering her above-ground pool she tried via text message to get an undercover FBI agent to off her ex in exchange for "happyness," knowing he would be protecting children.

Ross Rice, the FBI spokesman in Chicago, said he believed it was the first murder-for-hire case that began with text messages -- and without a doubt the first time a pool had been offered as payment.
