Teens, Guns, Murder, and Cyberspace...

For those who might have missed it, an 18-year-old Pennsylvania teen has been named as the principle suspect in the murder of his 14-year-old girlfriend's parents.

The pair were recently apprehended in Indiana after being spotted by a truck stop employee.

The suspected motivation?

Curfew and the parent's disapproval of David and Beth Borden's relationship.

Without passing judgment, the ol' ZenFo Pro has tracked down the teens' blogs, which will no doubt be used as evidence in any criminal investigation.

I've decided to repost the links to the pair's Xanga pages, a stark reminder of why parents REALLY need to understand what's going on in their children's online lives.

100% agreed. If you don't get invovled you could get a shot to the head. Sad, sad, sad for everyone in the mix in this crazy situation.

Definitely. And thanks. Too many parents are totally unaware of what their children do online. Or text message, download, etc.

but yeah.
i remember reading some pretty scary things in online journals in high school and it shocked me. I got into it late but I would sometimes just go ..like woa wtf is going on in these people's heads.

Apparently, somebody has removed Borden's journal, but Ludwig's is interesting.

The ZenFo Pro said...

Yeah. Online journals have way too many creepy things. Sometimes, there's nice things. I go into it way late too, so I'm still skeptical.

I figure Borden's blog has been removed because of hits or to protect her privacy.
