Nicole Okrzesik and James Ayers have been arrested in the March murder of 19-year-old Juliana Mensch
We've already brought you the creepy text messages
between Okrzesik and Ayers after the crime and the homicidal Google searches
Okrzesik allegedly made, but there's more: In addition to text-message arguments about what to do with Mensch's body, Okrzesik and Ayers appear to have used Facebook chat to plot their next moves too.
The first bits of Facebook info about the alleged crime come from around 8 p.m. on March 23 -- around seven hours before the murder, according to police. Okrzesik posts a picture from an IHOP and tags Mensch:
She then posted four photos just before midnight, including the one featured at the top of this post. Police say the photos were taken on NW Seventh Terrace, at the house where Mensch's body was found.
Police say the murder happened sometime early the morning of March 24. That afternoon, Okrzesik posted that she was in Miami:
And by 5:30, she was partying in South Beach:
She also posted pictures of her and Ayers at the bar:
On March 25, Okrzesik and Ayers got in an argument via text message
about what to do with Mensch's body and whether to turn themselves in. The argument ended in the early hours of March 26, with Ayers asking Okrzesik to come over and getting repeatedly brushed off.
The argument started up again later March 26, on Facebook:
