The deadly stabbing of a woman was live-streamed on Facebook
A woman’s body was discovered in an office building parking lot in Louisiana’s capital after her death was live-streamed on social media.
According to news reports, Janice David’s naked body was discovered late Monday night, chained to a vehicle’s steering wheel with jumper cables.
Someone who witnessed video of the incident on a Facebook Live feed reported Facebook, which then contacted authorities.
Earl Lee Johnson, 35, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder on Monday. Police said Johnson and David had been on a dayslong “drug binge” before he reportedly choked, assaulted, and stabbed Janice.
“Apparently they were involved in some drug usage together for a couple of days and the end result — as everyone has seen on Facebook Live — is a very gruesome, very evil act,” police spokesperson L’Jean McKneely said.
Autopsy results are pending on David, 34, of Baton Rouge.
