Facebook ‘Murder Plot’ Between Husband and Fictitious Flirter

Whilst going through a rather messy divorce a 29-year-old American woman, Angela Voelkert, posed as a sultry teenage girl on Facebook in an attempt to get some dirt on her husband, reports Mashable. What she didn’t bank on was her soon-to-be-ex husband David, 38, plotting with the fictitious Jessica to run away together, but not before he’d had a chance to pay “some gang-banger” from Jessica’s school to “put a cap in her [Angela’s] ass for $10,000”.

However, David was apparently able to prove to prosecutors that he was aware the account belonged to his wife all along, and was only feeding Angela a line with the messages. Since then, the charges, which also included his fictitious admission to ‘Jessica’ that he’d illegally installed a GPS tracker in his wife’s vehicle, have all been dropped.

In another story from the Guardian, an 18-year-old burglar – who was also facing manslaughter charges as a result of the break-in – in the UK has had his sentence extended after bragging about his initially short punishment on Facebook. His status update of “I’m only lookin at 6 mouths [sic] haa bring it on easy!” led the presiding judge to give the young bugger – sorry, I mean burglar – a total of 27 months in a young offenders’ institute. Judge Neil Ford QC said: “I cannot sentence you for a lack of moral fibre and decency, but I am
of the view you have shown no remorse. What you posted on Facebook…
would have borne a dagger into the heart of the family of the bereaved.” Well done Mr Ford.

    1. Very good point GJaros. When I write these blogs I tend to get the content down first, then go back and put in references and links as is appropriate, but I was obviously not on the ball this morning! Put it down to the fact it’s a Friday! Article has been ammended to that end.

      Thanks for taking the time to read and leave feedback, it’s much appreciated.
