A 45-year-old man stabbed his girlfriend to death and posted photos of her dead body on Facebook. According to police, the man posted the naked dead body of his girlfriend as well as a selfie of his face covered in blood. And he wrote:
“Pray for us”
Police said the fatal stabbing was part of a suicide pact between the couple. It was gathered that Facebook pulled down the photo after 36 hours.
The man, Kenneth Alan Amyx, from Texas, USA, told Plano Police Department that he and his girlfriend, Jennifer Streit-Spears, 43, had discussed a suicide pact for months. They had been drinking at an apartment in Plano, Texas, and had agreed to stab each other until both died. But Ms. Streit-Spears “chickened out,” Mr. Amyx said, and he had to “finish her off,” according to the affidavit.
New York Times reports that after the stabbing, Mr. Amyx called his father and said: “This is Ken. I love you. We’ve cut our throats,” and gave him the address of the apartment.
Ms. Streit-Spears’s mother called 911 around 10 a.m. on Sunday after seeing the photos on Facebook and after Mr. Amyx had texted them to her, the police said.
Mr. Amyx was been charged with murder.
