Teen asks fake stranger on Facebook to kill family
She wanted to teach her niece about inappropriate Facebook usage.
The aunt created a fictitious account on the social media website and befriended Marissa Williams, 19.
The Alabama girl, who has been living with the aunt since April this year, then asked the fictional man to kill the entire family and the dog, New York Daily News reported.
The relationship between the aunt and niece soured after the aunt objected to the girl inviting home people she had met online.
When she asked Williams to stop inviting men home and did not allow her to go to parties with strangers, she blocked her aunt on Facebook, al.com reported.
That’s when the aunt started the fictitious account, the report said.
Last month, when the aunt interacted with her as “Tre ‘Topdog’ Ellis” for the first time, Williams gave the phone number and address and invited Ellis to her home.
Soon, she began telling “Ellis” how much she hated her family.
She told “him” how to get into her aunt’s bedroom so he could kill her and her fiance first. She then asked him to shoot her cousin and the family dog on the way out.
When the aunt saw what Williams had posted, she called the police for help.
Williams was arrested.
