Teen fatally stabbed victim, 17, over Snapchat message

From NYDN:

"A message that couldn’t have existed for more than 10 seconds sent a South Carolina teenager into a violent rage that might get him years behind bars. Matthew Fischer, 17, is charged with fatally stabbing classmate Lucas Cavanaugh, 16, over a Snapchat message, WCSC reports. Cavanaugh sent a message through the smartphone app, which erases all pictures and texts after 10 seconds or less, to Fischer’s girlfriend Sunday night. Fischer saw the momentary message on his girlfriend’s iPhone, and whatever it contained made him so mad he used the phone to send Cavanaugh texts that said “Come over” and “I’ll kill you man.”
