PHILADELPHIA, PA – A 20-year-old woman is in jail after police say she solicited a hit man on Facebook to kill her ex.
The internet can be used for everything nowadays and finding someone to take out your ex-boyfriend is no exception. London Elay allegedly posted a status on Facebook offering $1,000 to kill her ex boyfriend, who is also the father of her child. The post showed up last month and stated “I will pay somebody a stack to kill my baby father.”
What’s surprising, but sadly isn’t, is that she got a taker. Timothy Bynum,18, responded with “say no more….what he look like?…. where he be at?” After Eley provided an address and description of her ex-boyfriend, Bynum then allegedly informed Elay he will “need dat stack 1st” and “ima mop that bull.” [my new pickup line -Morbid]
The ex-boyfriend notified police, likely saving his own life, after his aunt saw the messages on Facebook.
Officers who searched Bynum’s home found a .22-caliber handgun with the serial number destroyed. Eley is charged with solicitation to commit murder and Bynum is charged with attempted murder and conspiracy.
Neither has posted bail, although Bynum’s mother claims her son is innocent and she’s hiring him a lawyer. Good luck with that. Unfortunately for Elay, she didn’t have a notarized letter dated prior to the post stating it was all a joke. I don’t think she’ll be getting off the hook for this one.
