INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Marion County Jail rules clearly state that all calls may be monitored, but that didn't stop one inmate from attempting to set up a murder for hire phone call, according to court documents.
Investigators say Mark Leonard, a suspect in the deadline Richmond Hill explosion, was trying to hire a person to kill a witness in the case. He now faces another charge of conspiracy to commit murder, Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said Thursday during a press conference.
What makes this case baffling to investigators is that Leonard bypassed several clear warnings that jailhouse phone conversations are reviewed.
Outside Leonard's 4x8 cell sits a phone with a clear warning plastered on the wall that all
calls could be monitored. On page 13 of the inmate handbook, the warning is repeated that calls may be recorded. Deputies even printed out that section of the hand book and taped it on the wall near the cell.
So far Leonard has declined our request for interview.
