Teens used Facebook to lure NJ man to Md. and kill him, police say

WASHINGTON — Two teenagers are accused of using Facebook to lure a New Jersey man to Montgomery County, Maryland, and kill him.

Hikers discovered the body of 22-year-old Jordy Mejia in November along Game Preserve Road in Gaithersburg.

Montgomery County Police found no identification on the body, but they distributed a photo of a distinctive shirt he had been wearing.

That shirt matched the description of a man reported missing in Guttenberg, New Jersey, and helped police to identify Mejia.

According to charging documents, on Oct. 15, Mejia told his mother he was going to Maryland to see a girl he had met on Facebook.
