However, actual blood and skin isn’t our thing, and we certainly wouldn’t slay a human being over it. According to newsok.com, Edmond resident James Tyree was the victim of a crime that began on Facebook earlier this summer.
Tyree commented, “damm,” on a pic of a girl in a bathing suit.
Talk about not-so-famous last words.
Tyree was found gunned down five days after his incorrectly spelled swear word-compliment-degrading objectification-finger spasm on his keyboard. Allegations fell on Antwion Courtez Martin, boyfriend of the bathing beauty. He was arrested and subsequently charged with first-degree murder and shooting with intent to kill.
While poor spelling probably had little to do with actual motivation (f’reals), the idea that social media might be deadly is just too difficult to accept.
