Social media has changed the way people go about their everyday lives. This is not just in personal instances, but also in the workplace. We here at the TM Office utilize social media on a daily basis to inform our friends about information pertaining to web development, Internet marketing, social media and various other topics relating to the Internet and new technology. But recently, Facebook may have exposed a murder plot!
Apparently, a 29-year-old woman has been going through a rough divorce, so she created a fake Facebook profile of a 17-year-old girl named “Jessica Studebaker.” The woman intentionally created the profile to try and find some dirty little secrets from her soon-to-be ex-husband.
Angela Voelkert disguised herself as “Jessica” and started to interact with her 38-year-old husband, David. Turns out, Angela may have stopped her own murder from happening!
According to various reports, David was messaging “Jessica” and asking the fake girl to run away with him and then he told her he had already installed a GPS tracking system within his wife’s vehicle. He later to go on and tell “Jessica” that it would be much easier if his wife “was out of the picture.”
Voelkert started to show these messages to the proper authorities and she believed she provided them with enough information to put her husband in prison for a very long time. Unfortunately for her, David was able to convince prosecutors that he knew the “Jessica” account was a fake the whole time. In the end, the charges on David were all dropped.
Below are a few examples of the Facebook messages, which were included in the court’s documents:
“Once she is gone, I don’t have to hide with my kids…I can do what I want and not have to worry about not seeing my family anymore. You should find someone at your school. There should be some gang-bangers there that would put a cap in her ass for $10,000. I am done with her crap!”
“Will you be ready to go with me on the 10th? Let me know, baby!”
To close, the main thing you need to take from this blog post is that if you are in the middle of a divorce, stay away from using social media…obviously only bad things can come from it.
