In another case of over sharing on social media, a Mexican teen brutally stabbed her best friend to death for posting naked selfies of them together on Facebook.
The New York Daily News reports:
Erandy Elizabeth Gutierrez, 16, allegedly knifed Anel Baez, also 16, a horrifying 65 times. Cops believe she wanted revenge for the “humiliating” uploading of the revealing snaps.
Baez asked her former pal – who she had previously referred to as being her “sister” – over to her Guamúchil, Sinaloa state, home to try and patch things up, according to Mexican media reports. When Gutierrez arrived she reportedly asked to use the bathroom – but then grabbed a knife from the kitchen and allegedly used it to repeatedly stab Baez.
After fleeing the scene, Gutierrez was arrested when attending Baez’s funeral several days later.
Gutierrez had threatened her former pal over Twitter in the weeks before the alleged murder, according to Notus.
“It may seem that I am very calm, but in my head I have killed you at least three times,” the site reports she wrote on a now-deleted account.
Police are expected to charge Guiterrez with murder later this week.
However, under Mexican law, she will be prosecuted as a juvenile and may only face seven years in prison if convicted.
While this certainly isn’t the first case of social media activity resulting in death, what’s most disturbing is the hyper-sexual behavior both girls exhibited.
Let’s hear your thoughts – are there certain things that are off limits on social media? Should Facebook hold some kind of accountability?
