In December 2022, authorities received information that an inmate incarcerated at the Osceola County Department of Corrections, later identified as 29-year-old Tureygua Inaru, was trying to solicit other inmates to kill members of her family and an Assistant State Attorney with the Ninth District, according to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff Marco Lopez said, “Once she got to the jail, she befriends her cellmates and starts talking about wanting her parents, her grandparents killed, that she would pay them up to $50,000 saying they were very wealthy and she gave the address,” WESH reported.
However, the other inmates didn’t go along with Inaru’s plan and instead, told a jail guard about the murder-for-hire request, officials said.
The inmates told detectives that Inaru gave them instructions on how to make the murders look like a robbery, authorities said.
Lopez said, “One of the inmates had some notes about how seriously this individual was trying to plan this out,” according to WESH.
Detectives were also able to obtain evidence linking Inaru, who allegedly used social media platforms and other online sources to stalk the Assistant State Attorney prosecuting her cases, officials said.
WESH reported that Inaru reportedly emailed death threats to that Assistant State Attorney.

She is being held in the Osceola County Department of Correction without bond and her next court date is scheduled in May.
