World Wide Dead: 25 Real Life Social Networking Murders

Suicidal Teen Blows MySpace Needs Out of Proportion

Site: MySpace

Date: Feb. 8, 2008

Backstory: After having his Internet privileges revoked by his parents for posting suicidal threats on his MySpace page, Hughstan Schlicker went cuckoo and blew his father's head off with a 12-gauge shotgun. Schlicker found the weapon in his garage and admitted to nearly killing himself, but changed his mind and aimed the weapon at his father claiming he had enough of his rules: "I hate my dad, couldn't take it anymore."

Punishment: Entering a guilty plea agreement to second-degree murder, Schlicker walked away with a 20-year sentence.
