FBI Agent Says He Didn't Believe Wolfmeyer's Statement

(UPI file photo)


East St. Louis, Ill. – An FBI supervisor says Katie Wolfmeyer told him former St. Louis Blues player Mike Danton wanted someone beaten up for $10,000, but not killed.

Agent Emmerson Buie Jr. testified this morning in Wolfmeyer's federal conspiracy trial in East St. Louis.

Danton has already pleaded guilty and faces sentencing October 22nd.

Wolfmeyer is accused of participating in a murder-for-hire plot aimed at Danton's agent, who wasn't hurt.

Buie took a statement from Wolfmeyer in which she says she thought the situation was serious but didn't believe the would-be hit man would go through with it.

That man turned out to be a police informant.

But Buie also testified that he doesn't believe Wolfmeyer was being completely truthful.
