“I will pay somebody a stack to kill my baby father.”
It’s not your everyday status update. But police say that’s the message that one angry woman posted on her Facebook profile back on May 23rd, after getting into an argument with the father of her child.
On June 10th, police arrested 20-year-old Eley London of Philadelphia after she allegedly tried to hire someone to kill her baby’s father, Corey Jerome White, for $1000.
Even more shocking was the alleged first response. Investigators say 18-year-old Tim Bynum replied to London’s message and said that he was up to the task, agreeing to carry out the hit as long as he was paid up front.
Authorities were alerted after White’s mother saw the message and contacted her son.
“Its shocking that people are just so stupid,” said Lieutenant John Walker.
London was arrested on June 10th and charged with conspiracy to commit murder. She is currently being held on $250,000 bail.
Bynum was arrested on June 12th and charged with attempted murder and a weapons charge. He is currently being held on $350,000 bail.
