A Philadelphia man was shot and killed after posting what appeared to be roughly $60,000 on Facebook. According to reports, Tony Harris, 50, posted a picture on Facebook of his wife holding a handful of money with the caption, “I misplaced $60,000. I hope my wife didn’t go shopping with it.”
After the photo was posted, three masked men, believed to be between the ages of 17 and 19, held Harris and his wife at gunpoint in his home, demanding cash. It is still unknown if the intruders got the tip from the Facebook post, but the invasion (Oct. 12) took place just a a week after Harris posted the photo (Oct. 5), leaving little about how the invaders were tipped off up to imagination. The kicker? Harris’ newphew, Anthony Fleming, says his uncle did not have $60,000 but in fact, in the photo, his wife is holding a few $20 bills on top of paper.
Investigators are aware of the post, and are investigating the invasion.
