Facebook Selfie with Victim and Murder Weapon Leads to Arrest

We’re not usually in the advice of giving advice to murderers, but if you’re going to kill someone, you might not want to pose in a selfie with your victim.

And you definitely don’t want for that selfie to also feature the murder weapon.

One such selfie was part of what led to Cheyenne Antoine’s arrest, conviction, and sentencing for the murder of her friend.

Cheyenne Antoine and Brittney Gargol, Pre-Murder Selfie

Can you spot the murder weapon?

Cheyenne Antoine (left) posted this selfie with Brittney Gargol (right), a photo posted to Facebook on March 15, 2015.

Just hours before Brittney’s life was snuffed out forever.

In the photo, Cheyenne can be seen wearing a belt.

It is the same belt that police believe that Cheyenne, now 21 years old, employed to murder her 18-year-old friend.

In March of 2015, Brittney Gargol’s body was found by the side of the road near a landfill in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.

The belt was discovered near her body.

According to the Saskatoon Star Phoenix, Cheyenne employed multiple attempts to mislead investigators, including lengthy Facebook posts about being worried about her friend’s whereabouts.

Cheyenne originally claimed that she and her friend Brittney parted ways during the night, with Brittney leaving with an unidentified man.

Meanwhile, Cheyenne said that she herself had gone to see a friend and then gone to visit her uncle.

In reality, investigators came to believe that Cheyenne, under the influence of alcohol, murdered her friend — strangling her with her belt.

To be fair, the murder and the Facebook selfie weren’t Cheyenne’s only mistakes.

Police were tipped off by a friend who said that Cheyenne had drunkenly confessed to the killing.

Apparently Cheyenne and Brittney had gotten into an argument, and a drunk Cheyenne had ended up taking her friend’s life.

Between that and photographic evidence linking Cheyenne, Brittney, and the belt, police were able to identify the killer.

Cheyenne Antoine pleaded guilty and has now been sentenced to 7 years in prison.

In addition to expressing remorse, Cheyenne appears to be haunted by her inability to explain what happened to Brittney Gargol’s family.

Lisa Watson (picture speaking to reporters) says of Cheyenne: “She knows the family would like an explanation, a reason, but unfortunately she cannot provide that.”

The crime was thoroughly senseless, even to the killer.

Watson also mentions that Cheyenne was clearly dealing with personal issues, as well as substance abuse issues, which contributed to the homicide.

That much is clear, though we haven’t read anything that would qualify as an excuse for the murder.

Brittney Gargol surely deserved to live.

Logan Paul Apologizes After Mocking Suicide Victim, Posting Video With Dead Body

Logan Paul is the YouTube “celebrity” whom you recently became aware of when your most obnoxious nephew told you about him over the holidays.

He unequivocally sucks, but he has a massive following.

And he’s probably not going anywhere, despite having recently crossed the line between “terrible” and “ghoulish,” because 2018 is sure to be another diaper incinerator of a year.

Paul is a 22-year-old professional prankster who lives his life to amass views, but found himself smack-dab in the center of a particularly lazy episode of Black Mirror yesterday, when he became a top trending topic on Twitter … for all the wrong reasons!

For reasons that remain clear only in his brain–which has likely been severely damaged by years of violent “dabbing”–Paul and some of his friends traveled to Japan’s infamous “suicide forest” near the base of Mt. Fuji.

Here, they quite predictably encountered a dead body hanging from a tree.

Rather than respectfully mourning the loss of a human life and quietly alerting the authorities, Paul and company attempted to turn the whole thing into a comedy bit, with a video entitled–sigh–“We found a dead boy in the Japanese Suicide Forest…”

In the since-deleted clip, Paul and his friends laughed, spoke in “funny” voices, and repeatedly zoomed in on the corpse.

Needless to say, the reaction from Paul’s 3.9 million subscribers was one of near-universal disgust.

And the situation wasn’t helped much by the 22-year-old’s apology, which quickly deteriorated into a remarkably douchey humble-brag session.

“This is a first for me. I’ve never faced criticism like this before, because I’ve never made a mistake like this before. I’m surrounded by good people and believe I make good decisions, but I’m still a human being. I can be wrong,” Paul wrote on Twitter.

“I didn’t do it for views. I get views. I did it because I thought I could make a positive ripple on the Internet, not cause a monsoon of negativity. That’s never the intention.”

He concluded:

“I was misguided by shock and awe, as portrayed in the video. I still am.”

Yes, it was apparently shock and awe that led Paul to introduce his video by saying, “Buckle the f–k up, because you’re never gonna see a video like this again!”

Needless to say, Paul’s “apology” didn’t win him many converts … by which we mean he’s being savaely roasted by the entirety of the internet:

“How dare you! You disgust me,” tweeted Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul (no relation).

“I can’t believe that so many young people look up to you. So sad. Hopefully this latest video woke them up. You are pure trash. Plain and simple. Suicide is not a joke. Go rot in hell.”

“You’re an idiot. You’re not raising awareness. You’re mocking,” remarked Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner.

“I can’t believe how self-praising your ‘apology’ is. You don’t deserve the success (views) you have. I pray to God you never have to experience anything like that man did.”

“The amount of personal + social unawareness Logan Paul has displayed in THAT video is mind blowing to me. How could one w such power and influence have the audacity to put something so thoughtless online?” asked singer Rebecca Black.

“You have potentially intensified an entire family’s grief beyond measure.”

And as usual, Twitter person Pixelated Boat said what we were all thinking, tweeting:

“Logan Paul is clearly a psychopath, but so is everyone else who recreationally watches YouTube videos.”

Folks, let’s make 2018 the year we stop watching terrible people ruin lives for recreation.

We kid. It’s important to watch the evening news sometimes.
