Facebook “Defriending” Sparks a Double Murder, says Police

In Tennessee, a couple took a woman they knew off of their friend list on Facebook, and they were killed days later by the womans father and boyfriend.

Supposedly they didn’t like the way that she was treated by this couple. Now, Marvin Potter, 60, and Jamie Curd, 38 have each been charged with two counts of first degree murder and are being held in the Johnson County Jail.

On Jan. 31, Billy Payne Jr, 36, and Billie Jean Hayworth, 23, were found shot to death in their house that they shared. Billy Payne was also found with a slashed throat. They had an 8 month old baby who was found unharmed next to the mother.

Police say that Payne and Hayworth filed a complaint against Jenelle Potter a year ago for threatening them on the phone and online. They have had problems over the year, but the killing happened after she was “defriended” by the couple.

The Potter family was known to be a strange family.

The most senseless crime ever

Johnson County Sheriff Mike Reece explained that the “defriending” sparked the murders. He has dealt with the family before, and this is what he had to say:

“Her life is spent at that computer. She’s had some health problems, and she wasn’t working. It’s just a senseless thing. She’d been blocked on Facebook by Billy Jean. Once you cross her, it’s a big thing to her father, too. And he’s something to deal with.”

This might be one of the most senseless crimes in the history of human existence.

    I knew this family growing up. Jenelle was a nice girl, but in special ed here entire life. Very clingy and NOT very bright. Marvin had PTSD and the family feared for the kids all the time because he would wake up in fits of rage. He claimed he was once CIA and claimed some war medals that he allegedly never earned, but was honestly a nice, down to earth guy to talk to back then some 20 years ago. After he was charged with the war medal fraud the family moved to TN and it sounds like they all went off the deep end.

  2. Indeed, a senseless crime!!! I’ll bet the killers wondered what the hell came over them to do such a thing. Maybe not. But I know how you can get worked up over something somebody does on Facebook, it is really a problem at times. It is so important to do a reality check and realize that this is just words on a screen, nothing more.

    Jesus, Goddess, I knew this kind of crap was coming down through Facebook. The combination of people in our society being desensitized to violence, combined with the fact that the woman had no human outlets but her psycho family, show that the whole direction of “friends” through technology are not relationships with the same power and importance as those friends we have through actually living our lives.
