Black-on-black-crime: A man was shot dead just hours after two people appeared in court accused of conspiring to kill him in a Facebook murder-for-hire scheme
Authorities are investigating two possible theories in connection with the death of Corey White, 22, in Philadelphia. Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said that police are investigating leads about whether the fatal shooting of White was connected to the Facebook threat or to a previous shooting outside a nightclub in Upper Darby, a Philadelphia suburb. Police believe that another man was the shooter in the nightclub shooting, but they had been trying to track down White for questioning because they believed he may have been the getaway driver. A judge has approved charges including murder solicitation against White's ex-girlfriend London Eley, 19, and murder conspiracy charges against Timothy Bynum, the 18-year-old man who responded to her post.
