‘Facebook 4′ alleged death threats released
LEE COUNTY: The four students arrested for making death threats on a Facebook page were in court Thursday answering to a judge. NBC2 got the arrest report that details the exact nature of the threats.
Deputies with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office say it seems the four students were under the impression that a fellow student had “snitched” on one of their friends, Nicholas Gonzalez, after he was caught with a gun in his backpack.
After being alerted to, and then reading the conversation, the targeted student’s mother called deputies to let them know that threats had been made against her son.
During the investigation, detectives obtained a subpoena for Facebook, Inc. to figure out exactly who wrote the messages and where they were located by identifying the computers’ IP addressed.
After Facebook, Inc. gave up that information, detectives then went to Comcast to find subscriber information for the IP addresses.
The information from both companies led detectives to the four North Fort Myers Academy for the Arts students:
The four students were arrested and charged with Aggravated Stalking of a person under 16 years old.
