On November 18th, Jasmine Benjamin, 17, was found dead in a study room in her Valdosta State University dorm. She was a graduate of Central Gwinnett High School and had moved onto the college campus to study to become a nurse, like her mother.
Benjamin’s parents unfortunately found out about their daughter’s death via Facebook.
Benjamin’s parents said they were initially told that she died of natural causes, but within 24 hours, everything changed when police found evidence that turned the case into a murder investigation.
The family hired a private investigator to seek information about their daughter’s death because they already had their suspicions about who could be possibly by responsible and facebook came into play yet again.
