Did a Woman Kill 9 People for Not Accepting Facebook Friend Requests?

A story circulating this week claims that a woman in Louisiana was arrested after killing 9 people for not accepting her Facebook friend requests.

The story is fake.

It was published by the fake news website National Report. The article has been heavily shared and debated by many readers unaware that the article is not real. In the fake post we read:

Locals celebrated as word quickly spread about the arrest of 31-year-old Sha’Quonda Johnson. Police took Johnson into custody and charged her in connection with nine murders that took place between January of 2009 and December of 2013. Johnson had been dubbed by police as the ‘Facebook Friend Request Killer’ because she would leave a calling card at the scene of every murder related to the friend request feature on Facebook.

The Photo

A strange image is included with the story featuring a woman in a lineup wearing a cow costume. The true story behind this photo, however, is that of an Ohio woman who was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after chasing children, running through traffic, and urinating on a neighbor’s porch – all while wearing the cow costume in the photo below. That incident occurred back in 2008.


Bottom Line

The report that a woman killed 9 people because they did not accept her friend requests is not true, and originated from a fake news website. The photo used with the fake story came from a strange incident in Ohio in 2008.
