The Alarming Text Messages


Emma’s friends said that Riley started becoming more aggressive. He even sent her Snapchat messages, saying things like, “I hate you, I hate everything about you” and “you’re the biggest b***h I’ve ever come in contact with.” One message, in particular, worried Emma’s mother: “You’re dead to me… I’ll check the obituary… f you.”

Jill described how “We, on one occasion, saw one [that said] ‘I’ll see your name in the obituary. He wrote that to her, and we questioned him about it… and he said, ‘I was just angry.’ And that’s when [I] started to get many more red flags.”
