There are people on the internet claiming to offer contract killing services for hire.They advertise their wares via Tor, an anonymous and decentralized network of websites that exist off the grid and out of sight of Google, Facebook, and conventional web browsers.

C'thulu purports to be a collection of former soldiers from the French Foreign Legion that will kill for you.

They want $10,000 in advance and $10,000 upon completion.
