California man's school project accidentally catches would-be murderers

A California man's school project from 2005 accidentally caught would-be murderers.

According to the Daily Mail, Bob Innes created the spoof website RentAHitman.com for a class project in 2005. Three years later, he checked his email associated with the website and discovered hundreds of real inquiries from "prospective clients" looking for someone to kill for them.

He also found that the website was getting 6,000 visitors per month. That's when he decided to use the website for good to catch alleged criminals.

Bob decided to add an "application" form for people to apply to work as a hitman, which secretly gathered even more details for police.

There are real alleged criminals that have been caught because of this satirical website, including a Michigan woman recently sentenced to up to 20 years behind bars for trying to hire someone to kill her ex-husband.
