The Craziest Catfishing Story Ever
A lot of us are suckers for a good story of someone being catfished, right? Well it doesn’t get any better than this one. Sex, booze, murder. It’s got it all!
According to this incredible article, 19-year-old Marissa Williams thought she had found Mr. Right: Tre “Topdog” Ellis. I guess if you’re looking for a man, you do want the top dog.
So what sort of enticing conversation took place between the two? Well…
She gave the fictional boy her phone number and home address and asked him to come over and get drunk with her. She then offered to have sex with him if he’d pay her $50 cell phone bill
Of course, what you’re already aware of is the fact that Topdog wasn’t a real person. What you probably didn’t figure out is that it was Marissa’s aunt, trying to teach her a lesson about how to interact with strangers online.
Here’s where it gets fun!
Williams allegedly told the man she knew as Ellis that her family made her angry and that she wanted to get out of Alabama. She then asked the man she’d never met to come kidnap her and take her away from her family. According to the deposition, Williams told ‘Tre’ to shoot and kill her aunt if she tried to stop him.
Her plans reportedly got increasingly intricate and sinister as time passed. According to the court files, she told the fictional man how to get into her aunt’s bedroom so he could kill her and the woman’s fiance first, then she asked him to shoot her cousin and the family dog on the way out. Williams allegedly planned to pack her things in his car while ‘Tre’ murdered her family.
A regular Mickey and Mallory. Well, now she’s facing charges of solicitation of murder. Good times!
This seems like the perfect time to share my all-time favorite episode of Catfish: The Series.
