A Lingerfelt Lane, Braselton, woman called for assistance from a sheriff’s deputy related to Facebook threats from a male relative. The woman reported that her male cousin had hacked into her step-sister’s Facebook account and was threatening to kill her and come after her, according to a Jackson County Sheriff’s Office incident report.
The deputy looked at the posts and saw where one stated that the suspect was “going to kill (the complainant’s step-sister) and then come after (the complainant).” One of the posts also stated that the subject was going to “blow (the complainant’s step-sister)’s brains out the next time her (saw) her,” according to an incident report.
In an unrelated incident involving Facebook in Jackson County, an Old Commerce Road, Athens, woman said her ex-boyfriend, whom she had a family violence TPO taken out on, posted a cartoon on her Facebook page depicting a female holding a gun and pointing at the person who is looking at the picture. The caption reads: “Roses are red, bullets are lead, take me back now or get shot in the head.” He added a personal statement, which read; “This is how my ex thinks.” The complainant reported that she saw the cartoon as a threat toward her life. She was advised to contact the sheriff’s office immediately if the boyfriend were to attempt any type of contact with her.
