In November, a plain-clothes officer met with the suspect, 65-year-old Duluth resident Joseph Memar, during his visitation time, according to a news release from Gwinnett Police spokesman Cpl. Jake Smith. 

Memar offered the undercover officer $10,000 to kill his original victim, Alireza Jebraeilli of Norcross. Jebraeilli is his former business partner whom Memar allegedly arranged a hit to kill in June. Duluth Patch has additional details.
