Grand Jury To Probe Controversial Death of Police Informant

Hoffman did not respond. The police say Hoffman ended the call, but her family and friends dispute that, according to Block. The semi-rural area in which she was driving is known to have spotty cellular coverage, the lawyer said. Around the same time the call ended, the wireless listening device Hoffman had on her stopped working, according to a police report.

When police eventually arrived at the second meeting site, they found one of her flip-flops, a spent bullet round and skid marks, according to the police report. They did not find Hoffman, her car, the two men or the $13,000 cash.

Police eventually arrested Green and Bradshaw, who reportedly led them to Hoffman's body. The two have been charged with armed robbery – a kidnapping charge brought against them has been dropped. The men have pleaded not guilty. Prosecutors before the grand jury are expected to pursue first-degree murder charges against the two.

"Rachel made some mistakes, but she is the victim," a police spokesman told ABC News two weeks ago. "What killed her is Green, Bradshaw and drugs. That's what killed Rachel."

Attorney Block disagreed. "It was a bad plan" the police had drawn up, he said, with Rachel in the middle. "The execution was even worse."
