Looking to pay for murder in Indonesia?

Do you prefer your hitmen reckless and prone to running their yaps on the Internet?

You might be tempted by pembunuh-bayaran.blogspot.com, the personal blog of a self-professed "professional assassin." (Here's a version run through Google Translate.)

As the Jakarta Post reports, the site is among several (well, at least two) online blogs that advertise murder-for-hire services. Police tell the newspaper that more exist.

The Blogspot assassin not only takes orders but offers firsthand vignettes about his kills, such as this hit at a crowded nightclub: "I put the poison in his drink and watched him from (a) proper distance ... should he die, no one would think he died from poison – people might only think he had overdosed."

According to the Jakarta Globe, police are pursuing the creators of these murder-for-hire blogs. The clues may very well lead them to a Jakarta Internet cafe full of imaginative 12-year-olds.

UPDATE: Looks like the Blogpost assassin's site is now down as well.
