Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
You wouldn't go to a questionable part of town and let everyone know that you were carrying wads of cash. Likewise, you shouldn't post pictures of yourself with a bunch of money on social media. You can't be sure who will see it or if they have the ability to track you down. In a tragic case out of Illinois, one woman was killed in a home invasion after a man at the residence posted a photo flaunting a recently-acquired sum of money.
Kaleah Beville wasn't even the one who posted the photo, but the 36-year-old was struck when Zavian D. Wells and another man allegedly broke into the home and fired several rounds from their semi-automatic weapons. Beville died later that day, February 16, at the hospital, and two others were wounded. Authorities believe the robbery was planned by the pair after Wells saw a photo of money posted on social media by a male resident who won the cash in a personal-injury lawsuit.
Police were able to track down the pair after they were caught on surveillance video fleeing the scene in a white Chevy Impala. Wells is being held on a $3 million bond and has been charged with first-degree murder.
