A Facebook conversation between a 19-year-old woman in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and who she thought was a male user went from bargaining sexual favors to a request to kill her entire family.
Marissa Williams had an alleged tendency to invite unknown men that she met through social media websites into her aunt’s home, according to AL.com.
After Williams blocked her aunt on Facebook for restricting her from continuing to invite strange men into her home, Williams’s aunt decided to go undercover as a male Facebook user, named Tre “Top Dog” Ellis, and add her niece to see exactly what she’s been up to online.
The two conversed for some time, but it didn’t take long before Williams gave Mr. “Top Dog” her phone number, asked him to come over to her home and requested that he pay her $50 phone bill in exchange for sex.
The conversation took a turn when, days later, Williams expressed ill sentiments toward her family and asked Ellis to kidnap her. The deposition claims that Ellis was told to shoot and kill her aunt if she tried to stop him.
Williams wasn’t simply satisfied with her aunt’s murder. The court files say that, after telling him how to get into her aunt's bedroom, Williams asked Ellis to kill her aunt’s fiancé, the dog and her cousin before the two would make their escape.
The aunt contacted police soon after finding out what her niece planned to do.
Williams was arrested and she admitted to the murder plan and apologized, claiming she didn’t mean for anyone to get hurt.
