Details about this most recent Facebook fail + more photos of all involved under the cut…
Antwion Courtez Martin (pictured above) of Oklahoma City (aka “Twon Goinsteady Martin” on Facebook) is accused of fatally shooting 48 year old Edmond James Tyree after he left a comment on a photo Sharde Perkins posted to her facebook page.
“This is a perfect example of some of the ridiculous reasons people kill for,” Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater said.
On July 12, 2013, Tyree wrote “damm” on Facebook, misspelling his compliment about the woman’s photo and about 5 days later, a gunman killed him inside of his apartment.
Upon their search for a motive, authorities discovered the comment on facebook and when they interviewed Martin, he acknowledged the online incident.
“During an interview … Martin acknowledged having words with the deceased victim about his comments made about the bathing suit photo,” Oklahoma City police detective Ryan Porter wrote in a court affidavit.
Police arrested Antwion Courtez Martin of Oklahoma City in July and accused him of the crimes.
Homicide detectives also felt that there was enough of a connection between the killing and the comments that they took legal steps in August to preserve the woman’s and homicide victim’s Facebook pages as evidence.
Martin has been charged with first-degree murder and shooting with intent to kill and remains in the Oklahoma County jail. His attorney, assistant public defender Jacob Keyes, declined to comment on the case, but it’s looking like Martin may have made the biggest mistake of his life.
