After his rape victim reported the assault to the police, 19-year-old Corey C. Adams went on Facebook, changing his status update to "I got 500 on a girls head who wants that bread? Hit me up anyway possible."

According to this article in The Philadelphia Inquirer:

The victim told police that she left a party June 29 on South High Street in West Chester after consuming three drinks and feeling nauseous. She said Adams jumped into her car and later raped her. The woman called West Chester police July 1 and said she had accused Adams of raping her. She also told police she saw a posting on his Facebook page offering $500 for "a girls head," and feared for her safety. At the preliminary hearing, West Chester Police Det. Stan Billie testified that he went to Adams' home and that Adams agreed to meet with him at the police station. Less than 10 minutes later, Adams posted a second Facebook message that said he "needed this girl knocked off right now" Billie testified.
