Last summer, a South Carolina family took a vacation to New York. They returned home to a house that appeared to have been untouched in their absence. The truth, as they would come to find out thanks to Facebook, was that their children’s classmates had broken in and thrown a party while they were away.
The story was reported by The Today Show and you can watch their report here. The family evidently only discovered evidence of the party when pictures surfaced on Facebook. The father says he didn’t recognize the kids, but he did recognize their surroundings.
Though the incident took place months ago, police consider it an open investigation and are using photo tagging to identify suspects.
