TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (PIX11) – After using a fictional Facebook character to find out what her niece was doing, a woman uncovered a dark plot that ended in her young relative’s arrest.
According to The Huntsville Times, 19-year-old Marissa Williams moved into her aunt’s home in Fosters, Alabama in April, 2014. Her aunt claimed that Williams brought home strangers she met online, often on Facebook.
After confronting her niece about the strange men, Williams decided to block her aunt on Facebook instead.
According to her deposition, the woman created a fake profile on the social media site, pretending to be a young man named Tre ‘Topdog’ Ellis. She contacted Williams on Facebook and soon the two were chatting.
Williams, thinking she was speaking to the fictional Ellis, allegedly gave out her phone number, address and an invitation to come over to the house and drink. Her aunt claims she even offered sex in exchange for payment of her cell phone bill.
Then, it got worse. Williams wrote to ‘Tre’ to tell him she couldn’t stand her family and wanted to take off with him. If her aunt tried to stop him, Williams allegedly wrote, he should shoot and kill her.
Her aunt told investigators the messages from her niece grew more sinister when Williams gave ‘Tre’ the location of her aunt’s bedroom and began planning her death — her aunt’s fiance would die first, her cousin second and even the family dog had to die. As the killing spree was carried out, Williams would be packing the car for their escape, according to court documents.
Her aunt contacted authorities, and Williams was arrested for the solicitation of murder and jailed on $30,000 bond.
