Facebook Murder: Tennesse

February 12, 2012 by staff 

Facebook Murder: Tennesse, A US couple has been senselessly murdered after they ‘defriended’ a former pal on Facebook, in a crime described by a County Sheriff as the worst he has ever seen.

Billy Clay Payne Jr and Billie Jean Hayworth of Tennessee were shot dead by the father of the defriended Facebook user and the father’s friend after deleting Jenelle Potter from their friends list. The couple’s eight-month-old baby was found in the murdered woman’s arms and was thankfully unharmed.

“It’s the worst thing I’ve ever seen,” Johnson County Sheriff Mike Reece told Reuters. “We’ve had murders, but nothing like this. This is just senseless.”

Sheriff Reece said that the couple had previously filed two harassment cases over the defriended user, who he knew to be constantly on Facebook. The cases filed were related to “someone blocking her [Jenelle Potter] or taking her off.” Mr Reece noted.
