Facebook Killer strikes again

By Ai Lung Nguyen - August 2010.

TECHNOLOGY - Police in the Colombian city of Puerto Asis originally thought it was a joke when three teenage boys had been killed in the last 10 days, and all their names were on a "Death List" found on Facebook. The original list was only the names of young men in their teens.

A new death list has since been added which includes the names of young women.

On August 15th two of the people on the first death list were found on a road outside of Puerto Asis. Ferney Diego Jaramillo, 16, and Alejandro Ruiz Eibart Munoz, 17.

On August 20th a third person, Norbey Alexander Vargas, 19, was also killed.

The names of 69 people were on the death list which gave the people on the list three days to leave Puerto Asis or else they would be killed. So far the serial killer is making good on their promise.

The second list adds the names of 31 young women, bringing the total number of people to 100. Panic has since spread through the city of Puerto Asis and families of teenagers on the list have been fleeing the city with their families. Colombian police and soldiers have been assigned to protect the teenagers who remain.

Puerto Asis is a small city of 70,000 and the local police don't know who posted the death list anonymously but are continuing their investigation to try and find links between the people on the list.

A 5 million pesos ($3,000) reward has been offered for info about who posted the Death List. Some investigators suspect narcotics traffickers are behind the deaths, but others believe it may be a teenager on some kind of revenge quest...

Or the idea could even perhaps be based off the Japanese TV show "Death Note". (In the TV show a Japanese teenager gets his hands on a supernatural book in which whatever names he writes in it they die within a minute. He can also dictate the method or time of death. He begins using the Death Note book to kill criminals but ultimately becomes corrupt himself.)

The "Facebook Killer" may have seen the show, or may simply be on some revenge streak unrelated to the show and they just want to kill people from their high school yearbook that they don't like. Or, and this is just speculation, it may be completely random people they saw on Facebook.

The real danger is if people in other locations become copycat Facebook Killers.
