In March 2015, Cheyenne Rose Antoine, 21, pleaded guilty to killing her best friend Brittney Gargol, 18, who was found in Saskatoon, Canada with Antoine’s belt near her body. The best friend was sentenced seven years for murder.

It has now emerged that a Facebook selfie post showing both girls indicated the belt found near Gargol’s body and that was what made Antoine a suspect as she was wearing the exact same belt. That post was on Facebook only a few hours before Gargol’s death.

According to a CBC news report, Antoine told the police the bars visited by the pair before Gargol left with an unidentified man. Facebook was used to help establish the movements of the two girls, that night.

To cover up suspicion, Antoine posted on Gargol’s Facebook page the following morning – “Where are you? Haven’t heard from you. Hope you made it home safe”.

Antoine then accepted responsibility for her best friend’s death but claimed that she did not remember killing her. After getting drunk, Antoine showed up to her friend’s house and confessed about the her murder to Gargol.
