Vancouver woman arrested in murder-for-hire plot

VANCOUVER, Wash. – Police arrested a Vancouver woman in an alleged murder-for-hire plot.

On Nov. 2, police said they were notified about an anonymous letter sent to a Vancouver resident that had information about a paid solicitation to murder someone.

The letter was discovered by family members of the letter recipient.

Police said the suspect gave specific information about the intended victim, including a home address and vehicle description. They also suggested how the crime should be committed, along with the time of day.

The plan was never acted on by the person who received the letter, police said.

Detectives linked the letter to 39-year-old Lori Goulet of Vancouver, and named her a suspect. Goulet was arrested on one count of conspiracy to commit murder and taken to the Clark County Jail.
