Man Kills Couple Over Facebook

A 60-year-old Tennessee man is being charged with two counts of first degree murder of a  local couple because they deleted his adult daughter from their Facebook account.

According to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Department, Marvin Potter allegedly killed  Billy Payne Jr. and his girlfriend Billie Jean Hayworth in their Mountain City, Tennessee home in January.

Previous to their murder, the couple had complained that Marvin’s daughter, Jenelle Potter, was harassing them and therefore unfriended her on Facebook.

Also charged in the murders is Marvin’s friend, 38-year-old Jamie Curd, who was said to have had romantic feelings for Jenelle.

While Jenelle isn’t directly linked to the murders, authorities say Jenelle Potter has been involved in other cases where she claims to have been wronged by someone.

“It’s a senseless thing,” Sheriff Mike Reece said.

The deceased couple leaves behind an 8-month-old baby, who thankfully remained unharmed in the shootings.

When will people learn that Facebook is a social networking site and the majoriy of the people are just faking things anyway. If you get caught up in your feelings about e-friends, I wonder how do you manage your feelings in real life? A child is without their parents b/c of Facebook…what a shame!
