What started as a war of words on Facebook as left a 22-year old Brooklyn woman dead.
Kamisha Richards was stabbed to death after an argument over $20 she lent her boyfriend’s sister. Richards was attacked Monday night and stabbed once in the chest. She was taken to a nearby hospital where she later died.
Richards’ killer was her boyfriend’s sister, Kayla Henriques who lived in the same building complex. The two had apparently been going back and forth via each others Facebook statuses for many in their network to see.
The New York Post obtained text of yesterdays’ exchange between the two women on Facebook. In one post, Richards wrote on her boyfriend’s wall:
” U know ya sister so its not just ova $20 its the principle so don’t make it seem like I’m goin n 4 $20 she kno wat she did and she real f–ked up … this aint the 1st time she did dum sh-t…”
To which Henriques 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.”
This morning, New York City Police arrested Henriques and charged her with second-degree murder.
This story is a tragedy that displays can happen when people use the internet as a way to fan the flames of a minor argument. While it seems that these two women must have had problems with each other beyond $20 and a status, there is no reason why their Facebook feud had to come to this. The exchange is also sure to become evidence against Henriques whose temper and mouth have essentially secured her a lifetime in prison.
Indeed, a tragic and senseless crime.
