May 17 (THAINDIAN NEWS) You may know him as “The Calorie Commando” but according to reports from CNN News, Juan-Carlos Cruz is leading the ranks of homeless people-allegedly to murder. The plan reportedly fell through when instead of killing Cruz’s wife for him, they told police his plan.

The former Food Network Chef is now awaiting arraignment today after his arrest for allegedly trying to hire homeless people to kill his wife. He was booked for solicitation t commit murder on Thursday, after an undercover investigation that began on May 7 revealed how Cruz planned to kill his wife in a murder for hire scheme, where and when she was to be killed, and how much the payment was to be. According to Santa Monica Police Officer Jay Trisler, “We’re very fortunate that we have a relationship and rapport with some of the homeless and that they were able to give us information.” Three homeless men came forward to let the police in Santa Monica know that Cruz had hired them to kill someone. “They felt confident that they could divulge this information and be treated fairly and be listened to,” Trisler stated to The Associated Press.
