An East St. Louis woman warned her Facebook friends that she might be killed just days before she was found stabbed to death in her apartment on Saturday night.
“If anything happens to me tonight just let my kids know I loved them dearly and tell my momma I love her,” Michelle Rowling posted on her Facebook page on November 25th.
On Saturday night, police were called to investigate a disturbance at Rowling’s apartment complex. Police found the 25-year-old bleeding out on the floor of her apartment.
Police arrested her ex-boyfriend, 25-year-old Montrell Cooper, according to St. Clair County State’s Attorney Brendan Kelly.

Social networking giant Facebook has announced a new change in its policy that will allow advertisers to use your name, original content, Personal data and your photos in their online advertisements without your permission and without compensation to you.
The announcement comes on the heels of a legal settlement earlier this week that saw Facebook pay out over $20 million to Facebook members whose names and images were used in ads without their permission. Under the terms of the settlement each user will receive $15 in compensation.
Prior to the new change, Facebook members were allowed to choose privacy settings that blocked the use of their name and images in advertising on the social network. Those privacy settings have now been removed.
Facebook has reworded the policy to inform users that your face and name CAN be used in advertisements going forward — without your permission.
