Woman creates fake Facebook account, learns niece is planning her murder
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — A 19-year-old girl was arrested after police say she asked a fictional boy to shoot and kill her aunt and her aunt’s family.
According to AL.com, Marissa Williams had been living with her aunt in Alabama for a few months, but their relationship was strained.
Williams’ aunt was upset with the girl’s habits on social media. She told police the girl would invite strangers she befriended on sites like Facebook over to her house.
When the aunt asked Williams to stop inviting men she met online to her home, the girl blocked her aunt on Facebook.
Police say Williams’ aunt created a Facebook profile for a fictional man named Tre ‘Topdog’ Ellis so that she could chat with Williams and hopefully get a glimpse into her niece’s online activity, according to the report.
Williams began unknowingly talking to her aunt in late May, who was posing as ‘Topdog.’
On the first day they interacted, the aunt said the girl gave the fictional boy her phone number and address and asked him to come over and get drunk with her. She then offered to have sex with him if he’d pay her $50 cell phone bill.
Days later, Williams told ‘Topdog’ that her family made her angry and asked him to come kidnap her, her aunt, her aunt’s fiancé, her cousin and a family dog. She told ‘Topdog’ to kill her aunt if she tried to stop him.
Williams later told ‘Topdog’ how to get into her aunt’s bedroom so he could kill her and the woman’s fiancé. She also asked ‘Topdog’ to shoot her cousin and the family dog on the way out.
Williams allegedly planned to pack her things in his car while he murdered her family.
The aunt then contacted the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office.
Williams was charged with the solicitation of murder. She is being held in the Tuscaloosa County Jail pending a $30,000 bond.
