Target Of Alleged Facebook Hit Killed In Philadelphia

A Philadelphia man who was the target of an alleged Facebook hit issued by his ex-girlfriend has been found dead.

Corey White, 22, was reportedly killed only hours after felony charges were upheld by a judge against his ex and while the person charged with accepting the online hit was locked up, leaving authorities at a loss.

According to authorities, White was shot once in the torso after getting into an argument with occupants of another car on a West Philadelphia street.

According to the homicide investigation, the man he was arguing with got out of the car and shot him.

Authorities are still searching for suspects.

As previously reported, White’s girlfriend London Eleye was charged with solicitation of murder after posting “I will pay somebody a stack to kill my baby father,” on her FaceBook wall.

Timothy Bynum, 18, who typed back that he would accept the proposition, is facing murder solicitation and weapons charges.
