Maysville, N.C. – Shortly after changing her Facebook relationship status to “engaged” a woman was shot to death by her roommate. Karen Ann Rooney, 63 and Peter Terrance Moonan, 62 were not married but had been in a 16 year relationship and purchased their home together in 2002. The couple broke up earlier this year and since that time, Rooney had met another man, William Jenkins, and the pair had gotten engaged. Police feel that when Rooney changed her relationship status on Facebook to reflect that fact, Moonan flipped. He used a .357 handgun to shoot her twice before turning the gun on himself. The pair were found by a neighbor on Saturday. While I joined in on the Facebook angle with the title of this article, the truth is that it really had nothing to do with this. It’s not like Moonan didn’t know she had met a man and gotten engaged. And on the slim chance he did not know, he would have found out eventually without Facebook and this story would probably have still played out like it did. Even so, this is a good time to mention that if you do use Facebook, you really should check your privacy settings. If you already do, periodically check them again. Facebook loves to add new features that may reveal information about you that you were not even aware of, like that “Here Now” thing.
