An Ohio man used Facebook to document his twisted crimes…
For many people, Facebook is used to update friends and family what’s happening in their lives. But sometimes, it can also be used for darker matters. Take for instance the story of Leonzo Bufford and Keisha Betton, two former lovers whose relationship’s ending played out in horrific fashion on the social network.
This week, Bufford learned that his girlfriend Betton was allegedly cheating on him with other men, and he decided to confront her with a gun in hand.
Police say that Bufford arrived at his Girlfriend’s home and fatally shot both her and two other people after allegedly learning that she was unfaithful.
But the twisted story doesn’t end there. After fatally wounding his girlfriend, Bufford then logged on to her Facebook account and begin posting about the crimes.
In one disturbing update, he wrote: “Never PLAY GAMES WITH SOMEONE (sic) EMOTIONS OR CHEAT ON THEM WHEN THEY GIVE YOU THEIR ALL, PLEASE RESPECT THEIR LOVE AND DEVOTION , SOMEONE WILL END UP HURT OR WORSE DEAD,” Bufford wrote on Kiesha Betton’s Facebook page.
But the grim events of the day, continued to play out as Bufford continued to interact with Betton’s friends who commented on his shocking admission. Eventually, one person suggested he kill himself, in which he responded: “I will.” The same commentator then replied: “Do it now do it live.”
Commenting on Betton’s profile picture, Bufford tried to justify his crimes by saying: “I’m done being lied to, that’s why it happen (sic).”
“We know that after he had killed her and was driving, he was updating her Facebook page,” said Elyria, Ohio Police Capt. Chris Costantino. “We were monitoring her page and we saw that he was updating.”
Eventually, the police were able to track down Bufford who had by that time driven to Cleveland, but by that time it was too late. Authorities say they found him fatally shot in the head by a self-inflicted wound.
Police say that of the two other people Bufford shot, one of them may have been another Ex-girlfriend who he sought revenge against as well.
