FANS ONLY: Season 1 : Episode 4: TRUE CRIME – 13yo Virginia girl murdered by a college student she met online

In 2016 a 13 year old girl from Virginia thought that the older boy, a college student she met online, who attended a well-respected university, was her boyfriend. They first chatted for months on social media including Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and the now shut down Kik.

They met in person only twice, and she never came home from their second date. She was found, murdered, 4 days later dumped on the side of the road.

Remember – Parenting is hard. Be kind yourself
