Couple Arrested After Sending Gruesome Murder Pic Of FianceeMarch 13, 2017 20904
An Ohio couple has been charged after they allegedly staged a murder scene in their bathtub with ketchup and then texted friends and family as a â€œprank.â€
Micah Risner and his girlfriend Nataleigh Schlette have been charged with inducing panic, although they both pled not guilty in court on Friday.
According to a post on Risnerâ€™s Facebook page, he texted pictures, which showed Schlette lying in a bathtub covered in ketchup, along with a knife, to his sister who then showed his mother.
â€œPlease help me! I really didnâ€™t mean to. I donâ€™t remember. We was arguing and I woke up to this,â€™ Risner sent to his sister, according to police.
His sister responded: â€˜What the f*** is she dead Michah?? Answer me now!!â€™
Risnerâ€™s mother called police.
When Sandusky police arrived, however, they realized the scene was fake.
â€œShe (Schlette) got into the bathtub, and they put ketchup all over to make it look like he murdered her,â€ Sandusky police Sgt. Dawn Allen said. â€œHe started sending the picture and texting that he did it.â€
Risner said the joke was an honest prank.
â€œThe real me knows I could never hurt a woman,â€ Risner wrote in a Facebook post. â€œMy mother didnâ€™t even try to call me or anything. She went straight to the cops.â€
His sister also just got exposedâ€¦ Now everyone knows she was ready to help hide a murder. PRANK!
