Autumn Pasquale Invited to Suspect's Home Through Facebook: Report
Pasquale, 12, initiated the Facebook conversation when she saw a photo that Justin Robinson, 15, had posted of his BMX motocross bike, New Jersey's Star-Ledger newspaper reports.
"Is that ur bike?" she wrote.
"Yeupp," he responded.
"Thts sexy!" Pasquale wrote.
"lol thxx," Robinson replied. "... yes. cme 2 my house."
Four days later, Pasquale went missing. Her body was found Monday in a recycling container next door to the boys' home in Clayton, N.J., just 17 houses away from where Pasquale lived. She had reportedly been strangled.
Another Facebook post by Davidson – which read "Might be moving :(" – led Robinson's mother to call the police on Monday, worried that her sons may have been involved in Pasquale's disappearance.
Justin and his 17-year-old brother Donte Robinson have been charged with murder, conspiracy to commit murder, tampering with evidence, improperly disposing of a body and theft.
The Facebook conversation about the bike is particularly chilling, as Gloucester County prosecutors believe the brothers lured Pasquale to their home intending to steal her own BMX bicycle for parts.
Pasquale will be buried Saturday at Cedar Green Cemetery in Clayton. The Robinson brothers are due in juvenile court Friday for a ruling on their detention status.
