New details have emerged in the stabbing death of 22-year-old Kamisha Richards, who was allegedly killed by her boyfriend’s sister over a Facebook fight about a $20 loan.
Two days after Kamisha Richards lost her life, pieces of the heated Facebook exchange that lead to the confrontation are being revealed:
At 5:44 p.m. on Sunday, Kamisha Richards, 22, wrote that this would be “the last time u will con me into giving u money.” Ten minutes later, the other, Kayla Henriques, 18, replied, “Dnt try to expose me mama but I’m not tha type to thug it ova facebook see u wen u get frm wrk.”
The war of words escalated over Facebook. In capital letters, at 8:52 p.m., Ms. Richards said that she would have the last laugh. Ms. Henriques replied within seconds: “We will see.”
They exchanged more messages, until about 9:30 p.m. on Sunday
Just a day later — she was dead and by 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Kayla Henriques was arrested due in part to witnesses as well as things the suspect “said things to implicate herself.”
Ms. Henriques was charged with second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon, said a spokesman for the Brooklyn district attorney’s office.
Deputy Commissioner Paul J. Browne, the Police Department’s chief spokesman, said the Internet postings added pieces to investigators’ knowledge, though it was not immediately clear if those clues had been gleaned before Ms. Henriques’s arrest.
“Like so many things these days, elements of this case emerged on Facebook,” Mr. Browne said.
To the victim’s relatives, it seemed unreal that the Facebook entries could foreshadow such violence. In fact, Ms. Richards did not consider the exchange she had with Ms. Henriques serious, said her sister, Schneiqua Henry, 20.
“She didn’t pay it any mind,” Ms. Henry said. “She thought it was just another argument.”
Here comes the crazy part… You would think Kayla Henriques would have left Facebook alone after all of this but nooooooooooooooo:
Later Tuesday, a message appeared on Ms. Henriques’s Facebook page, even as she was in custody.
It said: “I can’t be leave this happen I’m sorry I send my condolences to her family RiP kamisha.”
And as that message was added, many others that chronicled the women’s fight suddenly disappeared.
SMH!!! Life is too short and precious to be murking folks because they embarrassed you on Facebook.
