As People reported,  21-year-old a (seen left) sent her friend, the victim, a comment on Facebook that said, “I hope you made it home safe.”
Canadian prosecutor Robin Ritter says it was all part of Antoine’s ploy to ensure she looked innocent in murdering 18-year-old Brittney Gargol (seen right). “The accused went to great lengths to try to mislead police and steer them in the wrong direction,” Ritter said “She manufactured a false alibi, placed the blame on other people, generated false suspects, was following up with [Facebook] posts saying, ‘I hope you made it home safe’ … she knew she didn’t because she killed her.”

Antoine originally pleaded innocent in the 2015 strangling death of

Prison Guards Mock Disabled Inmate Who Was Gassed To Death On Facebook

A handful of correctional officers are accused of mocking an inmate who died in a Carrabelle, Florida prison while begging for medical attention. The officers were responding to story published in the Miami Herald last week about an active lawsuit against corrections for the death of Randall Jordan-Aparo. They called the dead inmate a “b*tch” and other names on a private Facebook page dedicated to Florida corrections officers.

Jordan-Aparo, 27, allegedly spent four entire days begging for medical help. According to court records, medical staff dismissed his desire to take him to a hospital and instead gave him mere Tylenol pills for his ailments. According to the Miami Herald, he suffered from a rare genetic blood disorder, which was noted in his prison medical file.

When Jordan-Aparo disagreed with his treatment, he was allegedly put in an isolation cell where he was sprayed with a “chemical restraint agent.”

New Details In Kenneka Jenkins Case Reveal What ‘Help Me’ Screams In Viral Facebook Live Really Were

On Friday, police released dozens of police reports and witness statements regarding the death of Kenneka Jenkins, which address several of the rumors surrounding her death last month. The 19-year-old was found dead in a hotel’s industrial walk-in freezer in Rosemont, Illinois after attending a party on the ninth floor of the hotel with friends a day and a half earlier.
Her death was ruled an accident earlier this month. The medical examiner’s office blamed hypothermia, “cold exposure in a walk-in freezer.”  “Ethanol and topiramate intoxication” contributed to her tragic death, the findings concluded. Topiramate is medication used for epilepsy and migraine treatment. According to CNN, an autopsy found stomach lesions consistent with hypothermia.

The newly released police documents reveal how Jenkins seemed sad. She drank cognac heavily and then seemingly wandered off after her friends left her in a hallway, according to the Chicago Tribune. The reports
