Target In Facebook Murder-For-Hire Case Shot Dead
August 16th, 2011 7:01 PM
London Eleye, 20, posted on Facebook in May offering a “stack” to whoever would “kill [her] baby father.” A stack is street slang for $1,000 and Timothy Bynum, 18, took her up on the Facebook murder-for-hire offer.
Police learned about the situation and searched Bynum’s home. They found a .22 caliber handgun and Eleye and Bynum (pictured) have been in jail since their arrests on June 12.
Corey White, the 22-year-old father, testified at an initial hearing against them two weeks ago.
Hours after another hearing for them on Monday, White was shot dead a few blocks away from where he lived in West Philadelphia while the pair was in custody, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
