Social Media History Leads to Capture of Murder Criminals in Florida
Google is tracking users’ every move online. Perhaps this fact was forgotten by the Florida couple that has recently been arrested for murder. They foolishly Googled, had a Facebook history as well as record of text messages that revealed sufficient evidence for the death of a 19-year-old girl, Juliana Mensch. She died on March 24 in the Fort Lauderdale house she shared with the couple.
The possible motive is the money dispute they had. But these social media records were not the only signifying leads that the police followed. James Ayers, the 32-year-old man had confessed to the murder and Nicole Okrzesik, 22-year-old woman, was the accomplice. Their social media history shows a complete record of their thought process before and after they committed the crime. The case has been highlighted both in the main-steam media and the social media. The murder case has been of the first-degree and the trial will start on June 25.
This whole case is yet another example amongst many which shows the power of the social media in catching actual criminals and culprits. However, highlighting this case will also give caution to those who might have had similar plans. That of removing their social media history after they have done their so-called research into murdering someone. The fact that some people can think of such evil ideas is defies believe in humanity. But then this very human created network itself becomes the cause of leading to success of providing justice.
