16-year-old Matthew Joseph Fischer was arrested for the stabbing death of 17-year-old Lucas Bennett Cavanaugh in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. Fischer allegedly stabbed his victim after Fischer’s girlfriend received some messages over Snapchat from Cavanaugh. Fischer responded by daring Cavanaugh to come over and fight him which Cavanaugh obliged. During the fight police say that Fischer produced a knife and fatally stabbed Cavanaugh in the torso. After the fight Fischer fled and called his mother who didn’t hesitate to turn him back over to police. Fischer is being charged as an adult.

I never understood jealousy. To me jealousy is just another name for mistrust. If you trust your partner you don’t have to worry if some other guy is Snapchatting her. If you trust her she’ll just delete the messages. Not to mention like I’ve always said there is no man or woman alive worth killing over especially at that young of an age. You may think at that age you’re going to spend the rest of your life with that person but the odds are that you won’t. Now two lives are ruined over something so trivial as teenage jealousy.
