Ala. teen asks fake Facebook ‘friend’ to kill family

Getting to really know someone can be frightening.

This aphorism was revealed once again, this time in Alabama, when the aunt of a 19-year-old created a fictional Facebook profile and befriended her niece as Tre ‘Topdog’ Ellis.

During the first chat, the young lady, Marissa Williams, “gave the fictional boy her phone number and home address and asked him to come over and get drunk with her. She then offered to have sex with him if he’d pay her $50 cell phone bill,” reports al.com.

That couldn’t have pleased the curious aunt, who, in February, had given Williams a place to live at her home in Fosters, Ala., about 3 hours west of Atlanta on I-20.

But the fictional Topdog was soon feeling more like McGruff the Crime Dog when, within a few day, Williams asked her new friend, whom she had never met, to kidnap her and kill her aunt if she tried to stop him.

The aunt didn’t immediately call police, but reconsidered after her niece, in subsequent messages, told Topdog how to get into her aunt’s bedroom so he could kill her and her fiance. She also asked the fake persona to shoot her cousin and the family dog on the way out. Williams said she would pack her things in his car while he murdered her family, according to court documents.

Williams is in the Tuscaloosa County Jail charged with solicitation of murder. I doubt the aunt is trying to raise the $30,000 bond she needs to get sprung.

Why did the aunt create a fake Facebook profile? According to the article, the aunt became annoyed when Williams would invite men she met on Facebook over to the house without warning. When Williams blocked her aunt on Facebook, the aunt devised her clever scheme.

I am generally against such mischief, but anything that prevents murder is OK by me.

Aunt and her aunt's boyfriend--part of the problem.


Aunt offered her a place to live--where are the parents.


Cell phone and computer access--she needs far more than that.


Bringing strange men to the aunt's house--nuff said.

She offered sex for a $50 cell phone bill... I wonder was she'll give if a "friend" covers her bail...

A poster child for the 73% of black children growing up without fathers.

w00drow... Black kids are not doing mass shootings unless you are counting gang on gang crime. These mass shootings in schools and public places are majority white. I do agree that this behavior is a sad point in our history. Get a carry permit and be ready to protect your family and yourself if the situation dictates.  I have.

72GDawg...Marissa would never have a prospective employer, ever!  Good thing the thugs are not smart. Every week some criminal makes the same social media mistake.  They get caught and then wonder how did that happen!  She is not a candidate for Mensa.

Another example of how imbeciles like Marissa Williams manage to self-destruct with Facebook posts. They seem not to comprehend that their idiot online comments are there, maybe forever, for the world to see including family, prospective employers and the law.

Basically young people lack respect of others. We saw this coming for many years and now we have arrived at this sad point in American history. All the mass shootings will only become worse.

Good for you Aunt and clever thinking. ANYONE (especially young people) that comes into my home has NO PRIVACY and I tell them that.  NO friends over, no use of my phone with your friends, no Bu**Sh**.  NO standing outside the front of my home, etc.  Guess what...they stay away from my house and I get to live in peace for my hard earned sanctity.

Here's another one of these "I'll do whatever the #@!! I want and screw everyone else" people.  (Otherwise known as "the end justifies the means".)


$30,000 bail?!?  Seriously?  How about NO bail, rot in jail?!  Which is right where it belongs.

"I'm generally against such mischief.."  I don't find it to be mischief at all.

When has that NEVER been the thought process of greedy, selfish people? Any period of time you want to pick, you will have the evidence of this happening. It's just that what happens 100 miles away now gets reported on within days instead of never getting around the country or world.

That is the thought process now.  If you disagree with somebody, just have them rubbed out. Marissa will now have to about age 50 to post again on Facebook  how she liked prison. I believe the aunt just stopped another school shooter crazy.

@w00drow Wow you need to meet more young people if you're basing your assumptions on what a select group of idiots on the news do.

@BellaintheSouth I think it is OK to spy on young children in your home, but I think most 19-year-olds have a right to privacy. Not this one of course!
