Aunt Befriends Niece With Fake Facebook Account; Niece Allegedly Asks Her To Murder Family

Whoa. I just can't believe this one. 

"An Alabama woman's duplicitous attempt to befriend her niece with a fake Facebook account may be what saved her life. The niece was allegedly looking for someone to murder her entire family, including the aunt who set up the fake account. Marissa Williams, 19, is in the Tuscaloosa County Jail on charges of solicitation of murder. Authorities said she asked a person she met on Facebook named Tre "Topdog" Ellis to pretend to kidnap her and kill her family, along with the family dog. But Ellis was actually Williams' aunt, who set up the bogus Facebook account in May in order to teach her niece a lesson about the dangers of social media. The name of Williams' aunt has not been released, but the suspect has been living with her since April. The relationship was strained because Williams kept inviting strangers she met on Facebook over to the house, WSB TV reports. The aunt's experiment didn't go as planned."

I'd be really scared to have her released if I was any of her family members.  What's to stop her from following through via another channel? Yikes.
