Jury might not see alleged Facebook video of fatal beating
BANGOR, Maine (AP) — Officials say a Facebook Messenger video chat that allegedly showed a man beating another man to death won’t be seen by a jury because it wasn’t apparently saved.
Twenty-nine-year-old Donald Galleck pleaded not guilty to murder Tuesday in connection with the 2018 death of 40-year-old Jason Moody. The Bangor Daily News reports a court affidavit reported Galleck was on a Facebook Messenger call when the altercation with Moody began, and reported captured live video of the fatal beating.
A Facebook spokeswoman said “calls made over Messenger are not accessible by Facebook.” She did not answer a question asking if users can save video calls.
The Maine attorney general’s office declined to comment on whether the Facebook audio and video of the call had been saved.
