Everything’s Expensive! Wanna Make A Fast $12k? Go Fugitive Hunting In Texas!
Margaret Lorrain Smith has been on the run now for over a decade after being charged with capital murder in the death of her then-husband George Smith in 2007. After being indicted along with the man she hired to do the job, Dylan Laughrey, he was convicted and got a life sentence in prison with no possibility of parole. She was able to flee while out on bond in 2009 and disappear. The only female on Texas' Top 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list, she was last seen in a Walmart parking lot in San Antonio 12 years ago. She allegedly hired Laughrey to kill her husband, and on August 6, 2007, lured her husband to Surfside Beach where he was beaten to death to the point of being unrecognizable, by Laughrey--according to court records. The motive was allegedly a life insurance policy she was listed on as the beneficiary.
There are currently two different rewards being offered for information leading to her arrest, by separate agencies. Texas Crimestoppers is offering $7,500, and Brazoria County Crime Stoppers, where the crime took place, is offering $5,000 on top of that for information that leads to her arrest.
