Investigators using Facebook in murder case

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A Facebook post may be to blame for a teen's death in Richmond. 19-year-old Jamel Cobb was killed earlier this month after he was shot in the back.

The Richmond commonwealth's attorney's office says several witnesses have stated that a Facebook post led to his death.

Neighbors told us Cobb wished a girl happy birthday on the social networking site. Supposedly, she was in a relationship with Cobb's accused killer, Kareem Tillar. Tillar is charged with murder.
