Teenager Murdered Through Social Media



Franklin Davis, 30 (left), is being held on a $2 million bond after confessing to the slaying of a Carrollton teenager.
Shania Gray (Right), a 16-year-old student athlete at Hebron High School, was killed Thursday, two days before a cyclist found her body along the Trinity River, police said.
Carrollton investigators said Gray was killed to prevent her from testifying in the sexual assault case she had pending against him. Mesquite police said Davis had sex with Gray four times in 2010 when she was 14 years old while she was babysitting his children.
Davis was arrested in July 2011 and posted bond the next month. Watch his video confession after the cut

In the affidavit, Davis said he won Gray's trust with a fake social media profile and a prepaid phone. Posing as someone else, he convinced Gray to meet him at the school, he said. Davis told police that when he arrived at the school, Gray was surprised to see him.

One really needs to be careful on these social media sites, we have to be security conscious
