Police Informed a Mother About Her Sonís Death Over Facebook
On January 24th, Ricky Lamb was hit by a car and killed. His body sat in the morgue until Valentine's Day, though, because the incompetent local police only contacted the family over Facebook. It took a month for Lamb's mother to find the message.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the ordeal of Anna Lamb-Creasey, who had no idea what had become of her son. Apparently, the authorities couldn't figure out how to find a woman who was desperately looking for her son, so they opted to send her a message over Facebook. Because Creasey isn't friends with the cops on Facebook, the message was filtered to the often ignored "Other" folder. Why didn't Creasey pay attention to message? Because it looked like spam. The message was sent by an account under the name "Misty" with a photo of the rapper T.I. as the profile shot.
So an official police communication was sent from a social media account using the name of a pornbot and the photo of a convicted felon. How could Creasey have possibly ignored the message?
1. Sad the Mon never contacted police with missing persons report
And instead used FB herself, instead if contacting the police.
They left messages for both to call the police- and her and daughter both ignored them. The police did not send a message that the son was dead. Just to call them.
It's weird but it looks like someone made an extra effort because they couldn't track the family down. Sad.
