Target Of Facebook Hit Gets Shot, A Philadelphia man was gunned down hours after a judge upheld the criminal charges against his ex-girlfriend, who was accused of offering on Facebook and 1,000 for someone killed him.
But the teenager who allegedly took the bait already in custody, investigators said Tuesday they are not sure why the man was murdered. Corey White, 22, was shot in the chest Monday night in a West Philadelphia street, authorities said.
Homicide investigators said White had an argument with the occupants of a brown car and a man got out and shot him. “There are a couple of theories out there,” said Capt. James White. Hours earlier, a municipal judge had approved the charges including murder against the request of White girlfriend, 20-year-old London Philadelphia Eley, and conspiracy to commit murder and weapons possession against 18-year-old Timothy Bynum suburb of Darby.
“I’ll pay someone a stack of killing my baby’s father,” Eley wrote in a post this spring, according to a police affidavit.
“Say no more … What seems … in which … The need for the stack first,” Bynum, wrote back, police said.
A “stack” is and 1000, the researchers said.
Eley lawyer told Monday’s hearing that his client was merely the venting of an argument she had with her ex-boyfriend and had no intention of fulfilling it.
“When you do on a computer, it placed there for everyone to see and celebrate,” said defense attorney Gerald Stein. “Unfortunately, a sort of grandeur of anger.”
Eley said the prosecution saying he was not kidding about the blow to the original post.
Attorney Bynum, Lopez Torres said Tuesday that Bynum’s family is devastated by the death of White. Thompson insisted that his client had no intention of killing whites, he responded to the Facebook message and had nothing to do with the firing of White.
The Philadelphia Inquirer first reported the death of White.
