Facebook Hitlist Fear:Columbia Facebook Hit-list Murders- Three Teens Dead
Facebook Hitlist Fear:Columbia Facebook Hit-list Murders- Three Teens Dead – Facebook seems to have trouble following it every step of the way, as recently in Columbia a hitlist was seen on the popular site that included the names of three youths who ended up being murdered.
There were also other threats made to teenagers, who were advised to leave the town of Puerto Asis, in southern Colombia, or they will be killed as the others were.
A team of police investigators have been sent in to find out any information that they can, as well a team of internet experts to track down those responsible.
The killings happened on separate days, with two occurring on the 15th of the August, and the third teenager being killed five days later.
Diego Ferney Jaramillo, 16, and Eibart Alejandro Ruiz Munoz, 17, were shot dead as they were driving along a road on the outskirts of Puerto Asis in Putumayo province on their motorcycle on 15 August.
Colombian ombudsman Volmar Perez Ortiz said that at around the same time, anonymous threats appeared on Facebook, listing 69 local youths and telling them to leave Puerto Asis within three days or be killed.
At first, local authorities believed they were dealing with a hoax, that was until the first killings happened. After that, they knew how serious the situation was.
“Please, as relatives, ask them to leave town in less than three days, or we’ll see ourselves forced to carry out more acts like that of 15 August,” read the second note posted on facebook.*Sponsored Links*
