Woman Uses Fake Facebook Profile To Trick Her Ex
29-year-old Angela Voelkert is going through a divorce. Angela hoped to get an edge in the divorce proceedings by uncovering some dirt on her soon-to-be ex-husband. After creating a fake Facebook account belonging to a teenage girl Jessica Studebaker, Angela sent a friend request to 38-year-old David. Shortly after the two started talking online, Angela received one heck of a shock.
David confided in "Jessica" that he installed a GPS unit on Angela's vehicle with the intention of tracking her movements to find the best place to kill her.
"I am going to find someone to take care of her and now it will be easier because I know where she is at all times."
David even tried to enlist "Jessica's" help in finding someone to do the job for him. According to court papers, David said,
"Once she is gone, I don't have to hide with my kids. I can do what I want and not have to worry about not seeing my family anymore. You should find someone at your school. There should be some gang-bangers there that would put a cap in her ass for $10,000. I am done with her crap!"
Angela turned over the Facebook conversations to the authorities and David was quickly taken into custody... then released shortly thereafter. As it turns out, David was suspicious of this mysterious teenager that sent him a friend request and believed it to be his estranged wife. David provided the FBI with a notarized affidavit that details receiving a friend request from "Jessica" who he believed to be Angela, saying,
“I am lying to this person to gain positive proof that it is indeed my ex-wife trying to again tamper in my life.” He added, “In no way do I have plans to leave with my children or do any harm to Angela Dawn Voelkert or anyone else.”
The affidavit was notarized 6 days before the alleged Facebook threats were made.
