Arrest in murder of Staten Island woman

May 5, 2009 2:38:54 PM PDT
Allegations made on the MySpace Web site may be to blame for a murder on Staten Island. Now, police have made an arrest. Calvin Lawson, 28, from Brooklyn is accused of strangling his ex-girlfriend -- 26-year-old Caroline Wimmer-- with the electrical cord from a hair dryer in March. Police say Wimmer had been beaten beyond recognition.

Wimmer's parents found her dead after they drove from Pennsylvania to Staten Island -- after they could not get in touch with their daughter.

Wimmer's mother believes her daughter was victimized by rumors posted on the internet by another woman -- who claimed Wimmer was cheating on Lawson.
