John Michael Musbach Wiki – John Michael Musbach Biography
A New Jersey man who paid a hit man $20,000 in Bitcoin to kill a 14-year-old boy is facing up to 10 years in prison, according to prosecutors. John Michael Musbach , 31, of Haddonfield, pleaded guilty in Camden federal court on Thursday, February 2.
In the indictment before U.S. District Judge Joseph H. Rodriguez in Camden federal court, Musbach is charged with knowingly and intentionally using the Internet, a facility of interstate and foreign commerce, and causing another to use it, in order to intent to commit murder, US Attorney Philip R. Sellinger announced in a news release.
In 2015, Mubach exchanged sexually explicit photos and videos with the 13-year-old victim who lived in New York. The victim’s parents learned of the inappropriate touching and contacted local law enforcement.
Musbach was identified in the case and, in March 2016, he was arrested on child pornography charges and a search warrant was served at his residence, then in Galloway, New Jersey. Prosecutors said Musbach had decided to kill the victim so the minor “could not testify against him in the pending 2016 criminal case.”

Between May 7 and May 20, 2016, Musbach repeatedly communicated with the administrator of a murder-for-hire website that operated on the dark web. He allegedly also offered assassination-for-hire in exchange for payment in cryptocurrency, and arranged for a murder-for-hire.
Musbach asked if a 14-year-old boy was too young to target, and hearing that age was not an issue, he paid approximately 40 bitcoins, which was $20,000 at the time, for the hit. He repeatedly sent messages to the website’s administrator to follow up on the hit and ask when it would take place.
When pressed for an additional $5,000 to secure the hit, attempted to cancel, asking for a refund of the $20,000 from him. The website’s administrator later revealed that the website was a scam and threatened to release Musbach’s information to law enforcement, the US Attorney’s Office said. Musbach faces a potential maximum penalty of a decade in prison and a fine “of $250,000, whichever is greater, twice Musbach’s gross earnings or twice his crime victim’s gross losses.” His sentencing is scheduled for June 13.Read More…..
