Wife Murdered for Facebook Status
Anyone who thinks posting stuff on social networks has no consequences in real life has got another thing coming. Never mind the public berating Tracy Isabel Borres for her racist Facebook posts. A husband in the UK just murdered his wife for changing her Facebook status to “single”.
Edward Richardson, 41, of Mayfield Road, Biddulph, was found guilty of stabbing Sarah Richardson to death.
He killed the 26-year-old hairdresser at her parents’ home in Brown Lees, Staffordshire, on 12 May, 2008, Stafford Crown Court heard.
Richardson tried to kill himself after the attack and was sentenced to life with a minimum of 17 years in prison.
Fiona Cortese, of the Crown Prosecution Service, said: “Richardson became enraged when Sarah changed her marital status on Facebook to single and decided to go and see her as she was not responding to his messages.”
Perhaps she should have signed up for Ashley Madison instead.
