You probably shouldn’t Google how to kill someone before killing someone

A couple from Florida (where else?) have been tied to a murder after hundreds of text messages, Facebook messages, and Google searches revealed that they had turned to the Internet to find out how to craft an alibi as well as communicate to each other various ways to carry out the murder of Juliana Mensch, a 19 year old roommate of the couple. James Ayers, 32, was arrested a few days ago after apparently confessing to a friend. His girlfriend Nicole Okrzesik, 23, was arrested soon after yet blamed the murder on Ayers. And then the police checked their phones.

Turns out that Okzresik had extensively Googled how to kill someone the night of the murder. The Broward/Palm Beach New Times has links to everything she did on her phone that night (they even have the text messages.)

At 3:09 a.m. on March 24, Okrzesik (or someone using her phone) sent a text that said “she’s laying on my floor LMAO.”

At 3:36, she sent another text asking another friend if he knew anywhere to get crack. (The friend responded “what hell no.”)
