Crime News That Matters


Dying for a bargain: California college student robbed and murdered by three teens who posed as computer sellers on Craigslist:

18-year-old Garrett Berki was shot and killed this past week after he and his girlfriend were robbed during a phony craigslist transaction.

Berki met with three 17-year-old in San Diego for the purpose of buying a $600 computer. Instead, they robbed Garrett of his money and fled in their car. Garrett gave chase in order to get their license plate number but instead wound up face to face with them in a cul-de-sac. That’s when one of the teens produced a gun and shot and killed him.

The three teens that have been charged with Garrett’s death are Rashon Abernathy, Seandell Jones, and Shaquille Jordan. They’ve all been charged as adults and have all pleaded not guilty. They’re also looking at 50 to life sentences each.

There are no safe areas anymore to do business on craigslist since it attracts so many criminals anymore. Public place, bring people with you, it doesn’t matter anymore.

Now, all we have is to add 3 more names to the list of ‘Craigslist Killers’.

Thanks to all who sent in tips.
