The following Associated Press story just goes to prove that you shouldn’t do everything you see posted on Facebook. We spotted a reference to this particular prank on Facebook last week, but thought surely no one would actually try it . . . but one Arkansas teen did. Here’s the story:
A northwest Arkansas teenager thought it would be funny to text a random phone number saying she hid a body, but the joke backfired, the AP reports. Of all the local phone numbers she could have chosen, the 15-year-old Rogers girl picked one that belonged to a police detective. Police found the girl’s address by tracing her cellphone number.
The prank? To text: “I hid the body … Now what?” to a random phone number. The teen said she got the idea for the prank from a posting on the website Pinterest. Police didn’t find the prank funny and say it tied up some of the department’s resources. The girl was released with a warning.
