MySpace Confession Leads to Criminal Charges Against Teen

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports on a MySpace confession, allegedly posted by a teenage driver that has led investigators to file criminal charges against her in a drunk driving case.

From the report —

Heather Ann Tucci, an 18-year-old motorist accused of swigging vodka just before a crash in August that killed two of her friends, refused to talk with investigators about what happened.

But she apparently opened up on MySpace, admitting the crash was “my fault” and taking “full responsibility” for the deaths.

Now authorities are aiming to use those words against her. Investigators have obtained a search warrant to get records from MySpace to confirm that Tucci authored the posting.

Tucci is charged with two counts of criminal vehicular homicide in the Aug. 19 wreck in White Bear Township. The one-car crash killed passenger Joseph Murphy Renner, 19, and Joseph E. Shafer, 19.

Tucci also was charged with criminal vehicular operation in connection with injuries her best friend, Samantha Eileen Ziebell, 18, suffered.
