Teenage girl wanted her family killed by fake Facebook friend who was really her aunt


A woman in Alabama wanted to teach her niece a lesson, but she discovered the teenager had more serious issues. According to AL.com, Marissa Williams, 19, moved in with her aunt in April 2014. However, the relationship with the teenager got off to a rocky start because she often invited strangers she met on Facebook to the home.

Once Williams’ aunt wouldn’t allow her to bring strangers to the home or go to parties, the teen decided to block her aunt on Facebook. Her aunt eventually devised a plan to find out what the teenager was doing on the social network.

The teen’s aunt created a fake profile of a young male and used the name Tre “Topdog” Ellis and sent her niece a friend request. Williams soon began chatting with “Tre” who was really her aunt. On the first day of their online chat, Williams offered “Tre” sex if he was willing to pay her $50 cellphone bill.

Their conversations got deeper and the teen asked “Tre” to kill her entire family so that she could live with him and leave Alabama. She told “Tre” how to get into her aunt’s room and told him to kill her aunt and her fiancé first.  The teen then wanted “Tre” to shoot her cousin and the family dog before they left the scene and the state of Alabama.

The aunt who posed as “Tre” went to authorities after discovering the disturbing information. The teen was arrested and charged with solicitation of murder. Her bond was set at $30,000.
