Boy, 14, 'posed as spy to arrange his own murder'

A schoolboy posed as a female British secret service spy in an internet chatroom to persuade a friend to try to murder him, a court heard yesterday.

The boy, John, now 15, groomed a 16-year-old boy, Mark (both pseudonyms to protect the children), with an "elaborate matrix of deceit" involving six fictional characters in the MSN chatroom and correspondence totalling 56,000 lines of text.

The fictions created by John, then 14, convinced Mark that he was murdering someone who had a terminal brain tumour. He was told that his reward would be money, a job as a British secret service agent and sex with the spy, whom he believed was a middle-aged woman.

Made my morning lol What a stupid arrse-hole -

Unfortunately this new way of reading articles on facebook has surfaced a load of nonsense from years ago. There was one about army bullying from 1997.

Plus, who the hell uses MSN? That's like, soooooo 2008!
