A 27-year-old man named Moses Crowe has been charged with second-degree murder after he shot his younger sister to death for unfriending and blocking him on Facebook.
According to reports, Moses Crowe’s grandmother told the police that he came home around 10 a.m on Thanksgiving day, and started ranting about someone taking his dog.
His grandmother reportedly accused Crowe of “caring more about his dog than he cares about his children.”
He then targeted his sister, Amanda Owen, all because he was mad at her for unfriending and blocking him on Facebook. His rage over a frivolous reason ended up costing his own sister’s life.
Crowe allegedly pulled a Glock pistol from his pocket and pointed it directly at his sister’s head.
After he fired the gun, the 23-year-old victim fell to the ground with her infant son on her lap.
“I’m gonna go to jail for life,” Crowe said, according to his grandmother. He also said he “didn’t mean it” and asked her not to call the police as he left the residence with the handgun.
He was arrested hours after the alleged murder, However, after being nabbed by the officers, Crowe insisted that the gun “accidentally” went off while he was twirling the hand gun.
Some of his family members and friends also seemed to support Crowe after the incident, saying that he was a very loving person and cared a lot for his family.
One Facebook post by Crowe’s friend reads, ‘He loved his family so much don’t believe what you hear in the news they’re just trying to get their viewers up love you bro’.
While accounts about Crowe’s personality and morality vary on social media, the police have charged him with second-degree murder and the bond has been set to $500,000.
