Shannon Griffin did not know it was a set up when he told his uncle he was going to meet a girl. Shannon went to meet Jennifer Mee at an unoccupied house in St. Petersburg. The hiccup girl lured Shannon behind the house, where two of her friends accosted him. The two men robbed Shannon and shot him dead as he tried to fight back.

All three will be charged with first degree murder. Shannon Griffin will get justice. His life was taken away for a mere fifty or sixty bucks he had in his wallet. This is how much a life was worth to the three suspects.
The police continue to investigate the circumstances of the murder. They have an idea what social network site Shannon Griffin met up with Jennifer Mee, but they have to get the full picture before releasing the information to the public. The hiccup girl and her accomplices will most likely spend much of their adulthood in prison for this crime.
Jennifer Mee became the famous hiccup girl three years ago when she could not stop hiccups for five weeks three years ago. She actually made it on to the “Today Show” in 2007 and was hugged by country music star Keith Urban. Today she is being held at the Pinellas county jail without bail on charges of first degree murder.
The police warn parents to monitor their children’s social networking sites. This case proves how dangerous Facebook, MySpace and other social networking sites can be. Many teenagers and young adults leave to much personal information on the sites and trust almost anybody they meet on the sites.
This first degree murder case against the hiccup girl proves there are dangerous people on all of the social network sites. It is too easy to get connected to the wrong people. Shannon Griffin learned this the hard way and was murdered for his troubles. The hiccup girl and her two accomplices will have plenty of time to think of their crimes when they pay for taking away the life of an innocent man. The hiccup girl did not pull the trigger, but she was involved in the murder. The law states any person involved in a first degree murder crime like this will be charged just as severely as the man who pulled the trigger.
The hiccup girl wanted more notoriety and another fifteen minutes of fame. The St. Petersburg police are making sure all of her wishes come true. It is a shame a young man had to die because three people did not care about anybody but themselves.
