This looks like a paid hitman from 18th street gang, 18th street gang hitmen Google deep web links to see their dark web site and what they are doing. I am really not suggesting anyone to get involved with them in any way or use their services I just think light is a disinfectant and by exposing them I show to law enforcement what they are doing
