POLICE used a selfie to help convict a killer who strangled her best friend â€” because the photo shows the belt she used to throttle her.
Cheyenne Rose Antoine, 21, was this week jailed for seven years after 18-year-old Brittney Gargol’s body was found dumpedat the side of a road in Saskatchewan, Canada, reports The Sun.
Police say a picture of the pair posted hours before the teenager’s death became a key piece of evidence after it showed Antoine wearing a belt police believed to be the murder weapon, according to CBC News.
Antoine says she had been out drinking with Gargol when they got into an argument but told police she doesn’t remember strangling her on that night in March 2015.
But police noticed Gargol wearing the belt in the last picture her friend had shared online and it was eventually found near Gargol’s body.
Police were able to piece together a timeline of the pair’s movements from pictures posted on their social media sites.
