Teenager arranges his own murder on net

first_imgA 14-year-old boy has appeared in court, charged with plotting his own murder. John, 14, used multiple personalities on the internet to convince Mark, 16, to stab him when they met up in Greater Manchester last June. The boys’ real names have not been disclosed to the press. John used a number of different characters on the internet and became friends with Mark after meeting him in chat rooms. One of John’s false personas – a 42 year-old woman claiming to work for MI5 – told Mark he had to murder his friend. He was told to say, “I love you bro” as he carried out the attack and was promised sexual favours and money if he was successful. After the stabbing John was left critically ill in hospital, although he has now recovered. He is said to have been having difficulties in school and was unsure about his sexuality. Both boys have been put under supervision orders.ARCHIVE: 5th week TT 2004last_img
