There is a bizarre criminal case in the making in Alabama where an aunt was having trouble speaking with her 19-year-old niece who had barred her from access to Facebook where she was connecting with strange men. The aunt proceeded to gain access by friending her as a fictional man. To her horror, her niece proceeded to try to get her (in her role as a man named Tre “Topdog” Ellis) to kill her and her family, including the family dog. The aunt went to the police and Marissa Williams is now in jail.
The aunt struggled to deal with her niece who was inviting strangers from the Internet to the house in Fosters, Alabama. The aunt barred her from going to parties with the strangers and monitored her account until Williams blocked her. That is when Tre was invented. On the first day they interacted online, Williams gave the fictional boy her phone number and home address and asked him to come over and get drunk with her. She also offered to have sex with him if he’d pay her $50 cell phone bill. Later, the conversation turned to Williams asking Tre to kidnap her and shoot and kill her aunt if she tried to stop them. She gave Tre details on how to get into the aunt’s bedroom to kill the aunt and her fiancé first before proceeding to kill her cousin and the family out — while she was loading the car.
Williams now insists that she did not really mean it, though the jury could find that hard to believe after sharing details with an unknown man on how to enter her aunt’s bedroom etc. She is now facing the charge of the solicitation of murder.
