Dalia Dippolito Interrogation Transcript

Dalia Dippolito married Mike Dippolito in 2009. Within 6 months of their marriage, she hired a man to kill her husband. Fortunately, that man was a police officer. Another man Dalia Dippolito was seeing reported to police that he was afraid something was going to happen to either Mike or Dalia Dippolito and the investigation began. Many phone calls were recorded along with a video of Dalia in the undercover police officer’s car stating that she was “5000 percent sure” that she wanted Mike Dippolito dead and agreed to pay a $1200 deposit. After the police staged a crime scene at her house and told her that her husband was shot and murdered, she was taken to the police station for what she believed to be an informal interview. Below is the interrogation where she is confronted by police and they disclose that they were involved the whole time and she is being arrested for solicitation of first degree murder.

Dalia Dippolito: Oh.

Investigator: We got that from our reports that have been filed here. Uh, I mean, I’ll tell you what’s going on here. Okay. Listen, is there anybody that you know that you think would want to kill your husband.

Dalia Dippolito: My husband’s on probation.

Investigator: For what?

Dalia Dippolito: He, for stock fraud.

Investigator:  Stock fraud? How long have you been on probation?

Detective Anderson: Probation or parole? Has he spent any time in prison? How much? Do you know?

Dalia Dippolito: Um. Two years in prison and five years on probation. So came out to six years.

Investigator: Oh, oh my god. And what was that for?

Dalia Dippolito: It was for taking money, like, he explained it like, boiler room kind of, where they would take money from people …

Investigator: Oh, I understand.

Dalia Dippolito: …and put it towards things.

Investigator:  Yeah. How long have you guys been married?

Dalia Dippolito: [sigh] Not even a year.

Investigator: This is tragic. Is there anybody that you can think of that would want to do this to him?

Dalia Dippolito: I was telling the officers, we’ve problems already and…

Investigator: What sorts of…

Dalia Dippolito: …he’s been trying to get off probation and it’s been nothing but problems the whole time that he’s been trying to get off. Um, people weren’t happy that he was getting off probation because it’s a lot of money you got to pay back.

Investigator: Well, when you say people, who are you talking about? People was involved in before or…

Dalia Dippolito: A little bit of everything. This was supposed to be something, when he got off probation it was supposed to be between us and he went and he told, you know, friends of his, he told, you know, certain people. And everyone kind of talks and he’s constantly running into a lot of the guys that he was on probation with. Like, a couple days ago we ran into someone and that was, uh, a target. I mean, you know, the guy comes up to us and he’s like with organized crime. It seems like the guys from Boca are moving up here. And we’re constantly running into, you know what I mean, a lot of the guys he knows and things like that.

Investigator: Mm-hm.

Dalia Dippolito: So it’s a lot of money. It was 191,000 dollars…

Detective Anderson: [noise of suprise]

Dalia Dippolito: …he had to pay back. So we were going to go ahead and he had the money to pay off the probation and everything like that and then, I guess somehow, when he went away, some guys didn’t go away, they…

Investigator: When you say go away you mean went to prison?

Dalia Dippolito: Right. They left the country. And then somehow he was dealing with those guys because they thought that he owed them and I don’t know. Something with that that he was taking care of. So, the money he used to get off probation, he never…

Investigator: Ohhh.

Dalia Dippolito: He never, said that he did something else with that, with that money.

Investigator: Yeah, now do you know any of these people, their names, or anything like that, or where they live so we may be able to follow it up? We’re not going to, we’re not going to implicate you.

Dalia Dippolito: The guys that left, I don’t know.

Investigator: You don’t know them?

Dalia Dippolito: I don’t know them.

Investigator: You never met them?

Dalia Dippolito: No. I mean I know the guy we ran into a couple days ago. I know, I know like, certain names. You know what I mean? And I know certain names families. They were all on the news. Like the guys that all just went away…

Investigator: Mm-hm.

Dalia Dippolito: I forget what family.

Investigator: See Ronny and I and the squad, they only work major crimes. We only work murders, or homicides, and, and very serious assaults and kidnappings, and police shootings, things like. We only specialize in that. We don’t, we don’t work in anything else. So I wouldn’t know about the theft money that he may have been involved in. That’s why I’m asking if you know any names, then we can run these guys down and see what they know.

Dalia Dippolito: Well, another, those group of guys, they all went away. But he’s saying one of them, I guess somehow, he has a problem. I don’t know what problem he had, it was before we met. He ran into these guys and the guy thought he owed him something or something happened but they went away. I don’t know if the one guy I’m telling you about, pasquell, if he also went away or if he didn’t. But since this all happened like a month and a half ago they’ve all been arrested again for the same stock fraud stuff again.

Detective Anderson: That first name pasquell or last?

Dalia Dippolito: I don’t know.

Investigator: Is it pasqualli or pasquall?

Dalia Dippolito: Pasquall.

Investigator: Okay. What nationality are you? Spanish?

Dalia Dippolito: My mom is from Peru and my dad is from Egypt.

Investigator: Wow.

Dalia Dippolito: Yeah.

Investigator: There’s uh, I understand, a couple animals at your house too, right?

Dalia Dippolito: So, I guess, I want to tell you everything. The whole [cross talk]

Investigator: Please do. [Cross] Yeah, I do. I want to know.

Dalia Dippolito:  Okay, so that’s what happened with that. So, he didn’t know how to tell everybody what was going on with everything…

Investigator: Mm-hm.

Dalia Dippolito: …and so he pretty much, he told them that like, you know, I have the money and I took it and I got involved, in like a Berny Madoff kind of scheme because he didn’t know how to tell, you know, his mom and everybody what was going on.

Investigator: You’re lucky.

Dalia Dippolito: With what?

Investigator: You’re lucky you went to the gym.

Dalia Dippolito: We were supposed to go to the gym.

Investigator: Oh, both you were supposed to go?

Dalia Dippolito: He didn’t know if he was going. He just had liposuction. He had, like, two love handles removed from here. He had something little.

Investigator: Yeah.

Dalia Dippolito: And um, two weeks ago he had surgery and he had…

Investigator: What kind of surgery?

Dalia Dippolito: [inaudible]. Like, the lipo that he had.

Investigator: Oh, did he used to be real heavy or something?

Dalia Dippolito: No, he used to be then he got lipo done then the last surgeon I guess he left two bulges here. So yesterday he went because he had like, blood build up in his back.

Investigator: Oh.

Dalia Dippolito: So they drained it.

Investigator: Oh okay.

Dalia Dippolito: But he was like “well, depending on how I feel today”, but we go every morning. We haven’t gone since surgery but every morning at 5 am work out [inaudible].

Investigator: [noise of surprise]

Dalia Dippolito: Yeah.

Investigator: That’s a lot of, better than me. I wish I could go, obviously.

Dalia Dippolito: Well, you know, he’s very, um, he used to be a drug addict and…

Investigator: What was his drug of choice?

Dalia Dippolito: Crack.

Investigator: Crack? That’ll do it to you.

Dalia Dippolito: And um, he’s  recovering alcoholic so with him it’s really important to be on schedule, you know what I mean, like have a system and very organized with everything and…

Investigator: Lets, lets get back to, um, his, his death. Um, I don’t know if you know he was shot. He was shot twice. And I want you to know all this.

Detective Anderson: Do you know this?

Investigator: Did they tell you out there?

Dalia Dippolito: Not exactly. I mean, they told me he was shot. When I was at the gym I got a phone call I didn’t hear my phone ring and I called back and they told me just to please come, that something happened at me house.

Investigator: Yeah. Evidently your husband answered the door and they took him back upstairs and in the bedroom…

Dalia Dippolito: He has cameras though, why would he answer the door?

Investigator: I don’t…

Dalia Dippolito: Because doesn’t answer the door for anybody he doesn’t know.

Investigator: I have no…

Dalia Dippolito: And I mean the only person, like his probation officer is like the only, you know what I mean?

Investigator: I have no idea.

Dalia Dippolito: He would not have answered the door. We have cameras, like, at our house.

Investigator: Maybe he knows this person. I didn’t know you had cameras [cross talk] because when we got there, some of your neighbors heard the commotion.

Dalia Dippolito: We have cameras. The front door has cameras…

Investigator: Well, that’s great.

Dalia Dippolito: …the back door has cameras…

Investigator: Then…

Dalia Dippolito: …but they don’t record.

Investigator: They don’t record?

Dalia Dippolito: Nobody knows, but they don’t. We told everybody they record but they don’t record.

Investigator: Oh God.

Dalia Dippolito: Because he didn’t want them to make a hole in the garage for the recorder to be there because of his car.

Investigator: Well, when we got there the doors were wide open. When the officers got there the doors were wide open. They went in and looked, you have a, they said there was two dogs in the house like in a crate or a cage or something like that and um, uh, he was found in the bedroom. Shot twice in the head.

Dalia Dippolito: He wouldn’t open the door unless it’s somebody that he knows because [crosstalk] we don’t open for anybody.

Investigator: You have to understand, I wasn’t there, and neither was he, we have other people there so maybe it was, maybe somebody broke into the house or something, I don’t know. I haven’t been to the scene yet.

Dalia Dippolito: All of our rooms have TVs and we look specifically like to make sure nothing is happening because we’ve had drug incidences and things like that.

Detective Anderson: Was he asleep when you left?

Dalia Dippolito: No. We said, sort of but not really because of his back he was kind of like…

Investigator: Laying there?

Dalia Dippolito: … he was just laying there and he set the alarm and you know? But, I mean….

Investigator: There was no alarm…

Dalia Dippolito: … I said goodbye and you know, I’ll bring you coffee on my way home and you know, normal. Everything normal.

Investigator: There was no alarm, there was no alarm sound going off.

Dalia Dippolito: I put the, our little dogs downstairs and he stayed upstairs with the big dog.

Detective Anderson: How big is the dog?

Dalia Dippolito: It’s an English Bulldog but he doesn’t do anything…

Investigator: Would he bite somebody?

Dalia Dippolito: No. He loves everybody. I mean, he will run off with anybody he sees. The one that’s very aggressive and mean is the white one.

Investigator: It’s probably the smallest one in the house.

Dalia Dippolito: [inaudible] like, four-pound dog.

Investigator: Thinks he weighs 200 lbs right? Um…

Dalia Dippolito: I’m just trying to …

Investigator: Yeah, I’m going, I’m going, what I’m going to do right now…

Dalia Dippolito: There’s a lot that, like, I want to tell you..

Investigator: I’m going to be back but what I’m going to do is call, right now I’m going to go out and get in touch with the officers on the scene and want to see if the house has been burglarized.

Dalia Dippolito: Okay.

Investigator: Alright. Give me one second.

Dalia Dippolito: Okay.

Dalia Dippolito: Yeah, please do.

Investigator 2:  Alright, um, you understand what happened today? What’s going on here?

Dalia Dippolito: A little.

Investigator 2: Okay.

Dalia Dippolito: Now, slowly, I’m understanding a little bit better.

Investigator 2: What’s your understanding?

Dalia Dippolito: I was told one thing and now it’s totally like all these things are, like, I don’t, I mean, I don’t really know what happened.

Investigator 3:  Do you know that you are arrested today? You’re being arrested.

Dalia Dippolito: That part I understood.

Investigator 3:  Okay. Do you know what for?

Dalia Dippolito: Not really, no.

Investigator 3: [cross talk] the charge?

Dalia Dippolito: No, nobody…

Investigator 3: Go ahead, tell her the charge, Alex.

Dalia Dippolito: [sighs]

Investigator 2: Okay. You’re being arrested for soliciting to commit murder. Okay, and which that means is, is you attempted to hire someone to kill someone else. Meaning your husband. Okay? And that’s why you’re here and that’s what you’re being charged with.

Dalia Dippolito: [inaudible] No.

Investigator 2: No, you don’t understand or…

Dalia Dippolito: No, I never done that.

Investigator 3: Well, that’s what you’re being charged with.

Dalia Dippolito: Okay.

Investigator 3: And uh, we have plenty of evidence to back it up. Okay? So, with your rights in mind, we want to give you an opportunity to do some soul searching maybe and maybe get a lot off your chest and tell us the truth. That’s what we want to hear. I mean, this has been worked for a couple days now. It’s not just the first day we’ve been doing this, in reference to this case, and we have a lot of information to support our charge.  This is not what we’d call a quick little thing. So, we know when you’re lying to us and all of that, we just want to hear the truth. I mean, it’s done, it’s over with now. You know, and uh, this is your opportunity to tell us the truth. That’s all we want to hear, and we know the truth, so. I know it’s hard to commit to that but now’s your time, you know? You have anything to say about this?

Dalia Dippolito: I want to talk to my husband.

Investigator 3: Okay, well, you can’t talk to your husband. He’s not here right now. Let him go home. He’s taking care of the house and the dogs. Um, well, obviously your husband is alive. You saw him, right?

Dalia Dippolito: I saw him. I would like to talk to him.

Investigator 3: Okay, did and you seen that black officer that was here…

Dalia Dippolito: I…

Investigator 3: … in handcuffs. Well, he’s an officer. Okay? So, it doesn’t get any clearer than that. I mean, you know? I know it’s hard but…

Investigator 2: You know, people make mistakes sometimes, you know? The good thing about this whole thing is, that nobody got killed. Alright? The gentleman that walked into the room, he said it’s an officer. Alright? It’s not the first day we’ve been working this, alright? It’s an ongoing investigation.  Where we have you talking to this guy. We’ve listened to every conversation you had. Alright? So now if you’re, you know, tell the truth and do the right thing, that’s, you know? That’s when you reach inside you and you know, “fuck we made mistakes”. You know, everybody makes mistakes. Um, but tragedy was prevented today. You could look at it that way. You know? That simple.

Investigator 3: A big tragedy. I mean, someone’s life. So. Everything is on tape, Dalia. There’s no denying it. You know? Everything’s on tape and that’s not a bluff so. Phone conversations and there’s some video, too, so.

Investigator 2: What are you thinking?

Dalia Dippolito: That I’d like to make a phone call. I just feel lost, I mean…

Investigator 3: Who do you want to call?

Dalia Dippolito: I’d like to call me mom.

Investigator 2: We’ll let you call your mom after this is done, I mean…

Dalia Dippolito: I mean I’m not, you know, I mean, everyone keeps coming and I’m signing all these things and going over all these things and I don’t really know what they’re for. I’m just signing it because everyone’s saying “well, you know, if you sign this we’ll help you” or “we’ll this” or “we’ll that” and…

Investigator 3: I don’t know about that but the only thing we, we’re concerned with is the rights card and we went over that twice.

Dalia Dippolito: [crosstalk] came and I guess that may have been for release of the tape earlier, I don’t know because he never came back and I signed something and I don’t really know what it was.

Investigator 2: Okay, well…

Dalia Dippolito: I mean, I was hysterical like when he came and…

Investigator 3: [crosstalk] I’m sorry, go ahead, Alex.

Investigator 2: And that’s understandable, okay? Our main concern right now is the fact that a crime, with, you know, you actually, you got to understand this, okay. Dalia, listen to me for a second, okay?

Dalia Dippolito: I didn’t do anything.

Investigator 2: Listen to me for a second, okay? This is not our first day, okay? It’s definitely not our second day, alright? It’s an ongoing investigation, alright? Not only do we have you on video tape, we have every conversation that you’ve had leading to this point, alright? So for you to sit here and deny. that you haven’t done anything is not going to help, alright? Cause we know the, we know the whole story from the beginning to the end to this point that we’re at right here right now, alright? Everything that you’ve done since this started, we’ve been involved in it. Do you understand that?

Dalia Dippolito: I understand what you guys are saying and I’m not trying to lie to you or anything.

Investigator 2: Okay, well, I’m just [crosstalk] I’m not making, I mean, I’m just telling you the truth. That’s the truth. Alright?

Dalia Dippolito: I just want to go home.

Investigator 2: Well, unfortunately you’re not going home. Okay? You’re looking at some serious charges here. Do you understand that you made the attempt to hire somebody to kill your husband? That’s how serious this is. Okay, you can sit here and shake your head and deny it but, I’m going to tell you right now, alright, when they, when the judge and the jury see that video tape of this conversation making a deal, alright? That’s how far you went. Alright? It not about denying it, “it wasn’t me I didn’t do anything” because the video, the audio, it’s not going to lie. And all of the evidence we collected in this evidence.

Investigator 3: You sound like a fool denying all of this because like my partner just said, everything’s on tape. Video and audio.

Dalia Dippolito: I just want to go home.

Investigator 3:  I know but you’re not going home. You see? You’re being arrested so you’re not going home.

Dalia Dippolito: What do I have to do to go home? I’d just like to go home.

Investigator 3: I know but you can’t, it’s impossible. You’re going to the Palm Beach County Jail after this. You can’t go home. You’re being arrested. This is not a game. In your mind it might be a little game but this is very serious. Murder? You kidding me? Try to have someone kill…
