Unfriending On Facebook Leads To MurderBy: Shawn Hess - February 10, 2012
Billy Clay Payne, Jr. and Billie Jean Hayworth were murdered last month after deleting Jenelle Potter from their Facebook profile. Marvin Enoch Potter Jr. and Jamie Lynn Curd have been charged with the crimes.
Mike Reece, a Johnson County Sheriff comments on the incident:
“It’s the worst thing I’ve ever seen,”
“Once you’ve crossed her, you’ve crossed her father (Enoch Potter, Jr. ) too,”
The Sheriff reports that both victims were shot through the head and that Mr. Payne had his throat cut. The couple was found dead with their eight month old baby laying unharmed in the mothers arms.
So far, no charges have been place on Jenelle, but The sheriff remarks that this is not the first time she has had problems regarding Facebook. Several harassment charges were filed against her in the past relating to her activity on Facebook.
RO Smith, Curd’s attorney says:
” [it’s] safe to say there’s more to it than the Facebook problem, it appears.”
