Man Pretended to be His Girlfriend on Facebook After Killing Her

 

The family and friends of Jaime Feden, 33, from Pennsylvania, became suspicious when she wouldn't answer their phone calls but was still communicating through her Facebook account. One of her relatives even said that her messaging was not her usual style. This prompted one of her friends to contact the Bethel Park Police Department requesting a welfare check at her apartment.

The police started investigating Feden’s apartment where they found a slew of incriminating evidence, including a fake CIA identification card and a photograph of her boyfriend, a backpack of zip ties and duct tape, and Feden’s cellphone. Feden’s neighbors also told the police that they hadn’t seen the woman for at least two months. However, they did notice a man coming in and out of her apartment: her boyfriend, John Matthew Chapman, 40.

When confronted, Chapman admitted to murdering Feden. According to All That’s Interesting, a site for curious people who want to know more about what they see on the news or read in history books, Chapman misled his girlfriend into believing that their Las Vegas trip was a romantic vacation and that they were looking for a house so they could move in together. However, two days after arriving at their destination, he convinced her to prepare for a “bondage-themed photoshoot” in the middle of the hot, secluded Nevada desert.

At the desert, Chapman bound Feden’s hands and feet together with zip ties onto a signpost as well as duct-taped her mouth and nose so she couldn’t breathe. He kept her that way until she ultimately died from suffocation. The investigators stated that this case was premeditated and not a spontaneous homicide. “Chapman had planned to kill [Feden] before they left Pennsylvania and he had a kill kit ready before their departure for Nevada,” an affidavit by FBI Special Agent Jesse Laramee said. 

After going back to their apartment, Chapman started pretending to be his girlfriend on her Facebook account. He posed as her on social media to communicate with her family, likely to deter suspicion. As of now, the murderer has been charged with kidnapping and is being held in custody in Allegheny County.
