A fight for the Darknet spotlight has driven a Nebraska pharmacist to a murder attempt. A 41-year-old Auburn resident Hyrum T. Wilson was arrested last week for conspiring to blow up his colleague’s pharmacy, AP reported on April 17th.
Wikson used to successfully supply the Darknet market with controlled substances and prescription opioids. However, he decided that destroying a competitive business in his area would help profits from his illegal activities to grow.
From August 2019 through April 2020, Wikson conspired with William Anderson Burgamy IV, his Darknet vendor, to blow up another local pharmacy. Luckily, their plans were never executed.
Hyrum T. Wilson was charged with conspiracy to use fire and explosives, and conspiracy to distribute controlled substances. Burgamy was arrested as well.
