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.
