Michelle Rowling, 25, of East St. Louis, wrote ‘If anything happens to me ... let my kids know I loved them.’ Police are searching for ex-boyfriend, Montrell Cooper, who had previously stabbed and assaulted her. Police say she wrote the chilling status update the day she learned her ex had been released from jail.
An East St. Louis woman predicted her own death on Facebook five days before she was stabbed to death.
“SOOOOOOOO IF ANYTHING HAPPENS TO ME TONIGHT JUST LET MY KIDS KNOW I LOVED THEM DEARLY AND TELL MY MOMMA I LOVE HER,” Michelle Rowling, 25, wrote on Facebook on Nov. 25.
The following Saturday cops found her dead in her apartment, stabbed multiple times.
East St. Louis Chief of Police Michael Floore told the Daily News that the day of the ominous post Rowling had learned Cooper had just been released from jail for assaulting her in August.
“It’s been an ongoing situation between them,” said Floores. “He stabbed her in the neck in 2012. Then he jumped on her again in August. Then he got out of jail.”
“I LOVE MY TWO SOOOOOOOOO MUCH,” she wrote five days before she was killed.
Once her friends online heard the news of her death, they expressed their condolences on the same chilling post.
“I wish there was more we could have done you didn't deserve this Michelle,” one friend wrote.
“just putting this (together) smh...the f----- up news was that he got out of jail..... I swear to god I wish she would have just told me,” another wrote.
