The Dumbass of the Day might just be the world’s dumbest murderer. (And surprise, surprise, he’s from Arkansas.)
According to KAIT-TV, Larry Barnett accidentally revealed his “airtight” murder plot to the intended victim. Here’s how it went down: A former employee of Barnett’s called Jonesboro police Thursday afternoon and told them he’d gotten a call from Barnett. The man must have started to suspect the phone call to him was a mistake when he heard Barnett giving another person directions to his home and then say, “I don’t care if you have to burn his house to the ground with him in it. I don’t care what you have to do, make it look like an accident.”
The intended victim told police the call lasted about an hour and a half, and Barnett was still blabbing his murder plot while the victim called police. When police got to the victim’s house, they discovered it had been burglarized and the gas stove had been tampered with. Police tracked down Barnett and arrested him.
Jack’s tip: make sure that phone is locked before you start talking about illegal activities.
