From Left to Right: Victim Kamisha Richards & Suspect Kayla Henriques
A young Brooklyn woman was apparently stabbed to death by a Facebook friend late Monday evening over a $20 loan.
Police say Kamisha Richards, 22, was stabbed at 1220 Sutter Avenue in the Cypress Hill Houses public housing project in East New York. She died at Brookdale Hospital.
Police arrested Kayla Henriques, 18, of Sutter Ave. on Tuesday to face murder charges. She is reportedly the girlfriend of the victim’s brother. Henriques is the mother of an 11-month-old boy and lives in the same housing complex as the victim.
NYPD sources confirmed to MyFoxNY.com that the motive for the murder was an argument over a loan.
The Daily News reported that it was $20 to buy diapers. The paper claimed Richards had recently loaned Henriques the cash and became angry after learning the money was spent on things other than diapers. Police dispute the diaper connection.
Richards was a 2010 graduate of John Jay College of Criminal Justice, according to her Facebook profile. The suspect, Kayla Henriques, was listed as one of her Facebook friends on her profile.
On Sunday night, Richards and Henriques had gotten into a heated war-of-words on Facebook, according to the NY Post.

Police are on the hunt for a man that robbed a D.C. area home and posted pictures of himself posing with the stolen goods on the victim’s Facebook page.
Marc Fisher, a writer for The Washington Post, says his home was broken in to Friday and a thief took his son’s laptop, iPod, savings bond and cash.
Additionally, Fisher says his winter coat was taken, fresh out of a Macy’s box it arrived in.
Before leaving the property however, the thief used his son’s computer to take a picture of himself wearing the stolen coat and holding wads of cash.
He then posted the picture using the victim’s Facebook account for all his friends to see.
“I’ve seen a lot but this is the most stupid criminal I’ve ever seen,” said D.C. police Officer Kyle Roe.
According to Fisher, progress on the case is moving slowly and after four days he and his family were still waiting to hear back from the detective assigned to the case.
A New York court dismissed a lawsuit against Universal Records today (May 11th), stemming from a shooting involving rapper Remy Ma.
Makeda Barnes-Joseph filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the label, claiming Universal was in part responsible for Remy Man shooting her in twice in the abdomen, during a dispute over $3,000.
Barnes-Joseph claimed that Universal encouraged Remy Ma’s criminal activities by releasing her music during the criminal investigation of the crime.
Today, a New York appeals court ruled that Remy Ma had been dropped by Universal nine months prior to the shooting and dismissed the lawsuit.
Remy Ma is expected to be released from prison in 2013, although in a recent interview, she implied that she could be home much sooner.
