Police are hunting for a teen girl who they suspect may have stabbed her boyfriend to death following an argument, and then allegedly confessed to the killing on Facebook.
A desperate search is underway in San Bernardino, California for 18-year-old Nakasia James after her boyfriend Dorian Powell, 21, was found dead at an apartment on Monday.
The Daily Mail report that it is believed the pair had been in a domestic dispute, which had escalated and turned violent, resulting in Mr Powell’s death.
Now it has emerged that James may have actually confessed to the murder in a Facebook post where she claims to have got a knife and stabbed him.
The post has now been deleted but was posted originally by an account with the same name as James.
It said she was fighting with her ex before he hit her in the face and she grabbed a knife.
Here’s the confession:
James allegedly wrote:

BTsorry lord hopefully u forgive me! And sorry Dorian Powell rip.
San Bernadino Police have refused to comment on the post, but said in a statement:
Nakasia is aware that she is being sought in connection with this homicide. At this time it does appear to be related to a domestic disturbance inside the apartment.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Mr Powell was found dead on Monday morning after police received a 911 call that a man had been stabbed by his girlfriend in the 2000 block of North Central Avenue.
When officers arrived, they found his body and James was no longer at the scene. She is now wanted on suspicion of killing Mr Powell and anybody who knows her whereabouts is asked to contact San Bernadino police.
