The Facebook Murder?

5 05 2008

A Yorkshire woman was apparently murdered after her husband saw on her Facebook page that she was leaving him.

A husband is believed to have murdered his wife before killing himself after she told friends on Facebook they were splitting up, it emerged yesterday.

Tracey Grinhaff’s body was found in a shed in the back garden of the family home she shared with her husband, Gary, and their two young daughters, aged 14 and four.

Both had died of head injuries, although police said Mr Grinhaff’s were self-inflicted.

Less than a fortnight ago Mrs Grinhaff, 42, updated her profile on the social networking site, Facebook, telling friends she was “currently splitting” from her husband.

She added: “Been married for 16 years but together for 26!!!! God that makes me sound old.”

Neighbours in the town of Wombwell, near Barnsley, South Yorkshire, yesterday described the couple and their children as “the perfect little family.”

I have a feeling that this is going to get a lot of play in the media over time. How much do you share on your facebook, live journal accounts, blog, etc?

I used to talk more about myself than I do now learning the hard way.

It’s an unfortunate fact of internet life (if you can call it that) that some people are too deranged to keep their internet and the real world separated. I think some minds are just too primitive for such a technological advancement.

It’s sad, very sad. Killings, stalkings, shit-for-brains teenagers fighting over MySpaz gossip.
The internet opened an electronic world and within it are electronic idiots.
Just like out there. 🙂
