Woman Killed Over Facebook Status Change – A North Carolina woman was shot and killed by her ex-boyfriend after changing her Facebook status to “engaged.”
According to Maj. Donnie Worrell of the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office, 63-year old Karen Ann Rooney was shot twice in the torso in her home.
Her ex-boyfriend, 62-year old Peter Terrance Moonan, then killed himself with the same .357-caliber handgun.
Worrell said their bodies were discovered last Saturday by a neighbor who wanted to introduce his wife to Rooney. The neighbor also said Rooney had recently begun dating another man.
Rooney and Moonan had dated for 16 years, and tax records show they had bought a home together in 2002.
They broke up last February and Major Worrell said the couple didn’t have any history of domestic violence with the local police.
Senior citizens these days! Old people just shouldn’t be on Facebook.
