Desperate Times

A man was lured out to a remote location by a Craigslist ad offering work. The assailants planned the robbery meticulously, telling their victim to bring all his money and belongings because he would be living on the 688 acre farm and doing farm work.

The article reads like a complicated movie plot. They lured him out to the woods and then tried to shoot him. He barely escaped by hiding in the woods with a bullet lodged in his shattered elbow.

The police found the body of another man buried in a shallow grave nearby where the attack had taken place, so it appears as if the ruse has worked at least once before.
