Couple Murdered for Unfriending Woman on Facebook
We’ve all been down that road before. A glass or two of wine on a Saturday night, checking in with pals via Facebook status updates, noticing we’ve been unfriended, rushing out to murder the unfrienders…
Hold up. What?!
The couple’s 8-month-old baby was in the mother’s arms, unharmed, when the bodies were found.
Marvin Enoch “Buddy” Potter Jr., 60, and Jamie Lynn Curd, 38, were each charged on Wednesday in Mountain City in northeastern Tennessee (Where else?) with two counts of first-degree murder. The men were arrested on Tuesday.
Ugh. And if you think this is the only Facebook-related felony, think again. Facebook crimes have been reported in Texas, Tennessee and Iowa – domestic violence for a wife not “liking” her husband’s status, harassment after being “blocked,” and arson after defriending, respectively.
Our thoughts are with that poor baby who will now grow up without parents. Ladies and gentleman, if you feel murderous Facebook rage swelling within you, step away from the computer.
