The FBI found out from the confidential informant and they had McEarchern send a $800 down payment to a P.O. box in late November to see if he was serious, according to federal court records. His girlfriend at the time sent the money for him.
McEarchern told the would-be assassin where his ex-wife lived in Smyrna, what the best time of day would be to find her, and which barbershop the current boyfriend worked at.
