And the Facebook Murder Beat Goes On...

The Canadian Press
EDMONTON — Six students have been suspended from an Edmonton high school for posting threats on social network sites after the fatal stabbing of a teen.
The suspensions at St. Joseph High School follow the death of Niko Arlia, a 17-year-old who was killed at a weekend party.
The messages on Facebook and other sites threaten retaliation for Arlia's death, but police warn that such postings could lead to criminal charges.
Sgt. Kelly Rosnau, a school resource officer, says the messages can escalate quickly and could hamper the police investigation.
Two of the students are suspended with a recommendation for expulsion, but their parents have five days to appeal.
Kevin Moffett, a 19-year-old Edmonton man, has been charged with second-degree murder and weapons offences in the teen's death.
