A boxing coach has released shocking pictures of his “blood-stained corpse,” after staging his slaying, with assistance from authorities – to prove his wife had employed a hitman to murder him.

According to the Daily Mail, Ramon Sosa, 50, of Texas, collaborated with officers to gather evidence that his wife, Maria “Lulu” Sosa, was offering $2,000 to a hitman to have him killed.

Sosa, who owned a gym, said: “Unwittingly, she had approached a guy called Gustavo*, to see if he could organize the hit without realizing we were friends. I coached him. He’d been in trouble in the past but turned his life around.”

Sosa added: “At first, when he said he needed to see me, because someone ‘wanted to kill me,’ I thought he was joking. We devised a plan, for him to wear a wire and tape her offering money to have me killed, before turning the evidence over.”

His 43-year-old wife, however, was serious about having her husband killed.

“It was for financial reasons,” Sosa added. “The business was not as successful. Gustavo told me she was serious and had her fingers to her head, in a gun-firing gesture.”

However, the woman’s place came to a half, after Gustavo concealed a microphone inside his clothing and taped their meeting, before handing the evidence in at Montgomery County Police Station, in Houston near Sosa’s residence.

His wife’s plans to hire a hitman came as a huge shock to Sosa who, after meeting her in a salsa club in 2007, had been overwhelmed by her beauty.

Sosa found out that his wife Maria ‘Lulu’ Sosa (pictured together) sought to have murdered 

The divorced father, with three kids, Mitchell, 26, Mia, 22, and Cris, 24, soon won her over – before the two got hitched in 2010 – convinced he had gotten the woman of his dreams.

“Nothing was too much trouble for Lulu who was a personal trainer,” Sosa remembered. “She would give manicures, pedicures, and foot rubs. It was paradise, and my friends were jealous.”

Until they got married, the only issue had been that, as a Mexican, Mrs. Sosa had been forced to return home to renew her visa every few months.

But, marrying Sosa – who is originally from Puerto Rico, allowed her to a obtain Green Card, meaning she could reside in the U.S., where they opened a gym.

Life was great until 2015, when financial issues, as the gym struggled, put a damper on their relationship.

“I thought we’d work through it, and out of the blue, Lulu said, ‘I want a divorce.'”

Forced by their finances to live together, it was soon after, in mid-2015, that Sosa received the call from Gustavo and their bid to reveal Mrs. Sosa’s murderous intentions was launched.

He added: “After recording his meeting, where Gustavo pretended to know two hitmen, we took the tape to the police, who were shocked – but came up with a plan. They asked me to pretend to be dead so that we could show the pictures to Lulu.”

With assistance from the FBI, Texas Rangers painted blood on Sosa, making it appear that he had been shot in the temple.

Then they took him to the desert and buried him in a shallow grave, which they had dug.

“Lying in the dirt, pretending to be dead, was terrifying,” Sosa added. “When I first met Lulu, I didn’t expect our relationship to end like that.”

Pictures were taken of the morbid scene – which have now been published under Open Request, and then authorities sent Sosa to a hotel for three days, forbidden from communicating with anyone, and showed the photo to Lulu.

“A ‘hitman’ who was an undercover officer, met Lulu in a parking lot and showed her pictures, and she laughed,” according to Sosa.

Sosa confessed that he would “never be the same man again” after this.

However, he got the last laugh when Lulu pleaded guilty to solicitation of murder at the District Court in Conroe, Texas, and was sentenced to 20 years behind bars.
