The 14 Craziest Deaths Caused by Social Media

We’ve all done our share of Internet searching, stalking, creeping, and now, apparently, killing. In a world ruled by digital communication, posting the wrong status update can be fatal. These are the thirteen most ridiculous cases of social networking turned deadly.

What are some deaths caused by social networks? From relationship status changes on Facebook to cat-fishing at its best/worst, these are some of the most deranged things people have done on social networks. Oh, and Craigslist doesn't count because that's not as much of a social network as it is a cesspool. Enjoy.

    Middle-Aged Woman Seduces Teenage Boys With Fantasy Facebook Profiles, Then Kills Them Off

    «

    The craziest, most ridiculous social networking killer wasn’t actually a killer at all. The only murders this woman committed took place in her own deranged imagination.

    In a twisted, sadistic scheme taken to bizarre extremes, 28 year-old New Zealander Natalia Burgess spent months creating Facebook and Bebo profiles for (fake) attractive teenage girls. She gave them very specific, very fancy names, like "Jordz Williams," "Becca Maria Jullienne," and "Abby Jane Zoe William." No word on whether she went overboard with a baby name book or just imagined these fictitious chicks as strippers. Her goal: Seducing dozens of teen schoolboys into online relationships.

    As if that wasn’t I-Belong-on-To-Catch-a-Predator enough, Natalia would then ‘kill off’ the fake girls in tragic accidents or suicides, using other made-up personas to break the news on — you guessed it — Facebook. The girls' online boyfriends were traumatized and devastated.

    Over 40 teen boys have been identified as victims of her Internet mind games. First, she gave them what they never thought they’d have, and then she delivered sheer horror. Her deranged manipulation was discovered only when another 22 year-old woman found her own photographs in an online memorial video for one of these fake Internet hotties, a girl named "Abby."

    Natalia Burgess was sentenced to two years and two months in prison.
