As far as catfishing stories go, they never end well. Some of them end worse than others. This is in the "worst" pile.
An Alabama 19-year-old is in jail after she was catfished by her aunt, who thought she was spending too much time on Facebook. The aunt made a fake profile for a man named "Tre 'Topdog' Ellis," and began messaging her niece, Marissa Williams.
Then things went wrong, according to AL.com:
The experiment soured quickly. According to court documents, Williams began unknowingly talking to her aunt, posing as Ellis, in late May, and on the first day they interacted online, she gave the fictional boy her phone number and home address and asked him to come over and get drunk with her. She then offered to have sex with him if he'd pay her $50 cell phone bill.
That's not it, though. Turns out Williams wanted to get away from her family so bad that she wanted "Topdog" to fake kidnap her, and if her aunt (remember, she's the person behind "Topdog") tried to stop him, she wanted him to kill her.
...she told the fictional man how to get into her aunt's bedroom so he could kill her and the woman's fiance first, then she asked him to shoot her cousin and the family dog on the way out. Williams allegedly planned to pack her things in his car while 'Tre' murdered her family.
That's when the aunt had had enough. She called the authorities and Williams was arrested. Williams admitted to the plan but said she didn't really want them to happen.
