World Wide Dead: 25 Real Life Social Networking Murders

MySpace Buddies Murdered By So-Called Friend

Site: MySpace

Date: Feb. 7, 2006

Backstory: Ulysses Handy's pursuit of money and drugs led to the deaths of MySpace friends Darren Christian, Daniel Varo, and Lindy Cochran, who all died from severe gunshot wounds. Pictures on Christian’s MySpace page teased violent acts among the three men as two images revealed Handy whipping Varo, and Christian aiming a gun and sword at the murderer's head. During his trial, Handy told the victims' families to "get over it". Now that's cold-blooded.

Punishment: Handy's guilty plea helped him avoid the death penalty, but he's still serving three life sentences.
