20 year-old London Eley was arrested last Friday for trying to solicit a murder on Facebook. Eley posted, “I will pay somebody a stack to kill my baby father” and 18 year-old Timothy Bynum was one of the first people to reply.
The hit was never carried out, but police believe the plot was more than just idle talk. When officers arrested Bynum on Friday, they found a loaded .22 caliber handgun in his apartment, with the serial number partially obliterated.
“We believe there was a real potential for him to carry it out,” said Lt. John Walker of the Southwest Detective Division. “He had the means to make it happen.” [ READ MORE HERE ]
According to Philadelphia Inquirer, Bynum is charged with attempted murder, conspiracy, and related offenses and Eley was arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit murder. Damn shame.
