Submission + - Reddit meme suggests murder confession->

colinneagle writes: The popular Confession Bear meme is typically used to make light-hearted personal confessions, like this one. But on Sunday, one Redditor's Confession Bear meme claiming that he murdered the abusive boyfriend of his sister brought on enough suspicion to lead him to delete his Reddit and Facebook accounts.

The meme read "My sister had an abusive meth addict / I killed him with his own drugs while he was unconscious and they ruled it as an overdose." While a meme can hardly be an indicator of actual guilt, the Redditor who posted it quickly realized the implications of the post and quickly began closing his Reddit and Facebook accounts. But he wasn't quick enough to do that before a few curious Reddit users were able to find his name, location, job history, and military rank through a few simple web searches.

One Reddit user who claims to have this information declined to post it to the site, but given the gravity of the "confession," should he?
