If This Were Your Child?

By Daily Mail

18 January 2011 - A teenager has admitted to killing a 13-year-old girl he met on social networking site Facebook, according to Lithuanian police.

The 14-year-old lured the girl to the county's capital, Vilnius, where he lives.

And this morning he confessed to the murder, police said, after the unnamed girl's half-naked body was found last night. The teenage girl was found half-naked near a bus stop outside the capital Vilnius.

Police spokeswoman Dalia Petrauskiene says the girl from the town Alytus was murdered after arranging on the popular social networking site to meet the boy.

The spokeswoman said today that the boy confessed to the killing and if he is found guilty of murder he faces a maximum 10-year sentence.

The boy, 14, allegedly killed the 13-year-old boy near to Vilnius, the Lithuanian capital. Lithuania is one of Facebook's fastest growing markets, with some 710,000 users in the country of 3.4 million.

Facebook has attracted over 600 million users since it was established in 2004.

And the social networking site has already been the cause of some attacks and killings, drawing vicious criticism from some quarters who complain that privacy settings should be tighter.

In January 2009 Edward Richardson, 41, was convicted of killing 26-year-old Sarah Richardson in a 'frenzied and brutal attack' at her parents' home in Biddulph, Staffordshire, after he had become 'enraged' when she changed her status from 'married' to 'single'.

Last March Peter Chapman, 33, was jailed for at least 35 years over the killing of Ashleigh Hall, 17, in Sedgefield. The known sex offender met her via Facebook.

Meanwhile in August three Colombian teenagers were murdered in five days after their names appeared on two hitlists published on Facebook, the social networking website.
