*edit* Apparently it really wasn’t a hoax. I followed up the article on the Anchorage Daily News and found this link. The two 24 year olds admited it was the 16 year old, Rachelle, that instigated the plot to kill her mother. They were doing it as a favor to her for sleeping with them, how sick is that?? What could have been so terrible between her and her mother’s relationship that she had to have someone kill her? I know, from what I’ve read, that her Mom would pick on her because of her weight, and she was very strict about her having all A’s in school, and she wasn’t too happy about her dating one of those 24 year olds…but that’s it. My Mom was very strict about us getting all A’s too, and my cousin would poke fun at me about my boobs and would point out when I was gaining weight, but I wouldn’t murder them for that! I don’t know…I guess I’d have to be in her shoes to understand her reasoning . You can’t know everything that’s going on with someone by just reading their journal. But I still don’t think that justifies her wanting her mother dead. They mention in the article (linked above) that someone deleted the entries from September to November 18th on her LJ. I would have thought it was Live Journal, but I don’t think they think so. I do have all the entries, which I got from the second link I posted in my previous entry below. She just seemed like a normal, “emo”, teenager who wrote about normal things like school and how her parents were bugging her, just like all the other teens on LJ do. She seemed so…normal. I’m still just in…utter shock! */edit*
Is this for real? At first I thought it was some sick joke, but the more I read about it, the more I believe it. A 16 year old girl who had a Live Journal allegedly killed her mother. Or she got people to kill her mother, something like that. Her LJ’s been wiped out. Her calender shows she had entries up until November 18th, but the most recent entry shows up in March. (Quite the investigator I am, no? ) I’ve found this link (which includes a picture of her?) and this one. I can’t believe someone would do this–if it’s even true. And to write about it on your online journal?? And if it’s not…shame on whoever started the damn hoax…SHAME!
