22-year-old Colorado resident Merric McKoy took a selfie of himself holding his 19-month-old daughter Mia in November 2013. The photo looks innocent enough, but in fact McKoy had a restraining order against him, placed by his ex-girlfriend Kim Phanthavongsa. After making cryptic comments on his Facebook page - one, for instance, reading "don't judge me had no choice" - and posting the selfie, McKoy shot Mia, attempted to murder Phanthavongsa, and after failing to kill her, shot himself. Both McKoy and Mia died from their wounds.

In July 2011, Florida teen Tyler Hadley told his friends he was having a big party at his house. He claimed his parents were out of town, though no one knew where they had supposedly gone and how long they would be away. Turns out, Hadley had dropped Ecstasy and murdered his mother and father, leaving their bodies in their bedroom while he entertained 60 friends and fellow students.  

Also during the party, Hadley admitted his crime to his friend Michael Mandell, who took a selfie with Hadley because he figured it would be the last time he ever saw his friend in person. Mandell then phoned the police and told them everything.
