#12 Finding A Hit Man In The Yellow Pages
The YellowPages has every number under the sun; at least that's what Phoenix resident Sharleen Bath thought. In 1990, the housewife,and mother of two, decided to hire a hit man so she could get some money from a person she wanted dead. She couldn't find a direct number for an assassin, so she decided to call a company named 'Gunsmoke, Guns for Hire;' thinking they would be able to help her. The company turned out to be an entertainment business, specializing in themed parties. The company's owner, Leigh Wilson, thought it was a prank and didn't take Bath seriously until she called two more times asking to speak to a hit man. She then decided to report Bath to the police. An officer pretended to be a hit man and arranged a meeting with Bath at a restaurant. After agreeing on a figure, Bath was arrested and later sent to prison.
