Facebook Death List Murdered!

A town has been thrown into panic after three teenagers named on a Facebook hit death list were murdered in the past 10 days.

Police are investigating the deaths in Puerto Asis, Colombia, after 69 boys received warnings to leave town or be executed! Officers at first thought it was a hoax until they discovered two youths who had been shot dead two days earlier, were on the list. Diego Jaramillo, 16, and Eibart Munoz, 17, were shot dead after going for a ride on their motorbikes. Another victim called Norbey Vargas, 19 was killed five days later. The boys who's on the death list were warned to be aware and increase safety precautions such as walk in a group and beware of suspicious behaviours or unknown strangers.




More anonymous threats have appeared on leaflets flyposted on cars in the town, saying: "Please, as relatives, ask them to leave town in less than three days, or we'll see ourselves forced to carry out more acts!"
Another list was published on Facebook on Monday, this time naming 31 girls in the town. Detectives have brought in internet experts from the Colombian capital Bogota to help them track down the killers. It is suspected that the killers has his/her own motives and somehow related to the victims on the list.

Mr Perez said the gang were known for "intimidating and meting punishment against...drug sellers and consumers, sex workers, people with criminal and unlawful histories, and threatening social leaders, business people and taxi drivers." A spokesperson for Facebook would not immediately comment when asked whether the hit lists would be removed.
