Snapchat Linked To Murder Case, Again
Venice-based ephemeral messaging app Snapchat is being wrapped into yet another, murder investigation, this time in the Pittsburgh area--after a teenager apparently took a Snapchat photo with the body of a murder victim. Apparently, a 16-year old teenager in Jeanette, Pennsylvania, was charged with murder Friday, after the teenager sent a selfie via Snapchat with the murder victim--another teenager--in the background. The murder investigation is at least the second time Snapchat has been pulled into a criminal case in the last few weeks: in January, Snapchat was linked to another murder when a teen apparently stabbed his girlfriend over a message sent via the service.
