    Default Valentines Internet Suicide Pact

    http://www.wnbc.com/news/4188079/detail.html


    Gerald Krien, the man who allegedly used chat rooms to solicit a mass suicide on Valentine's Day, 2005, was arrested in Oregon.

    Police Trace Internet Records To Find Members Of Valentine's Day Suicide Pact
    Plan Included Mom Who Was To Kill Kids

    UPDATED: 4:39 pm EST February 11, 2005

    KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. -- Investigators are subpoenaing records from Internet chat rooms to try to contact people who may have planned to take part in a Valentine's Day mass suicide.


    The move follows Wednesday's arrest of a man in Oregon who is accused of using a chat room to try to set up the mass suicide.

    Sheriffs deputies in Klamath Falls, Ore., said Gerald Krein faces charges of solicitation to commit murder. They said as many as 32 people in the United States and Canada may have been involved.

    Investigators said the case came to light when a woman in Canada told authorities that she'd planned to take part in the suicide but then had second thoughts when another chat room participant talked about killing herself and her two children.

    The Klamath County sheriff said one of their primary goals now is locating those children.

    Investigators told The Oregonian newspaper that participants were going to log on to a Web site on Valentine's Day and simultaneously commit suicide.

    Krein was being held at the Klamath County Jail without bail pending a grand jury review of the case expected next week.

    What a fucking wacko! My brother and I used to cruise Klamath Falls on the weekends when we lived in Merrill, OR. It's a nice town, but apparently has a few wackos too.

    The guys obviously some nut-job, but what crime has he actually committed? What will the police charge him with?
