Anyone know what this is about? Brett Nash, of 43 Shirlwin, Granite City, was arrested Monday afternoon at his residence and charged with violation of the Hobbs Act, FBI spokesman Brad Ware said.

Nash planned to put the victim in a Jacuzzi and electrocute him by throwing in a radio, court records state. They planned to obtain a cat, cat food and kitty litter for the house and then toss the cat in the water to make it appear the cat knocked in the radio.
The plot came apart when Nash's unnamed friend told FBI agent Nick Manns that "he did not want the intended victim killed." The friend was previously convicted of second-degree murder and sexual assault

Nash also told the friend that his wife was a former dancer and that the pair had made money for the past two years by extorting her married customers. She would promise sex for $1,000 at a hotel room and Nash would take pictures of the victim's car and then enter the room to take pictures of the victim.
Nash said they'd obtained $25,000 from one man that way.

Just wondering how long it takes before all the wife's "customers" are exposed. You know the ones they swindled out of money by blackmailing them after the sex. I bet that will be quite an interesting list of scum bags.

He has always been EXTREMELY bizarre, a habitual liar, anti-social except when lying which he can only do for brief periods of time.

I met him when he was a teenager at which time he spoke with a Brooklyn accent and told me he just moved here from New York. It was one unbelievable story after another every time I saw him.

Had not heard or saw him in a very long time, but I cannot say I am surprised he would try something like this but am surprised he would consider murdering someone innocent.

It amazes me how his wife Tonya got away with her part. Her lies and deceits date back to her Florida days and the money she extorted from men their. Police shud have talked to the people she grew up with, friend and family. They would tell you what a low life they both are. She is still doing her tricks and lying through her teeth. I gave the cos a heads up on the benefit held at Eddies lounge before it happened but guess what they didn't want to hear about it or investigate it. Im glad he got caught I thing prison orange would look very nice on that purely fake body of hers

This is why I don't talk to my neighbors very often. I don't want to know what's going on with them.
I'll give it a wave now and again but that's it.
