It takes a real criminal mastermind to pull off something like this.
Via the Broward Sheriff's Office:
HIGHWAY HOMICIDE SUSPECT MISTAKENLY DIALS 911, MENTIONS MURDER PLAN ON RECORDED LINE
Suspect(s): Scott Simon, male, 24, 4/30/88, 1221 N.W. 3 Ave., Pompano Beach (IN CUSTODY)
A man who orchestrated a murder on Interstate 95 “pocket dialed” 911 just before the fatal shooting. On a recorded line, Scott Simon can be heard telling someone else that he’s going to follow the victim home and kill him. Minutes later, 33-year-old Nicholas Walker was shot and killed while driving his car onto the highway.
Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives arrested Simon Tuesday night. He is charged with first-degree murder for his involvement in the May 5 shooting. Detectives do not believe Simon was the triggerman but that he coordinated the shooting after getting into an argument with Walker in a nearby Waffle House.
When deputies arrived at the scene shortly after 6:40 a.m., they found Walker’s silver Buick crashed into a guard rail. Deputies and Oakland Park Fire Rescue extinguished a fire in the engine compartment, but Walker had already died of gunshot wounds. The investigation prompted a three-hour closure of all southbound lanes of I-95.
