Was this woman arrested for calling her ex 77,000 times in one week?

A story surfaced yesterday about a New Mexico woman called Linda Murphy being jailed after she called her ex 77 639 times, sent him 1937 emails, 41 229 text messages and 647 letters in one week.

Apparently the woman had a history of obsessive compulsive disorder and drank a LOT of energy drinks so that she could stay awake 24/7 to ring her ex.

However, people are starting to question the truth in the story after some pretty smart guys did the math and realised there are only 10,080 minutes in one week. No matter how much caffeine you had in your system it’d be pretty hard to make just over seven phone calls a minute, aswell as sending a bunch of emails, text messages and letters.

The mug shot used in the photo also turned out to be that of Cierra Reed, who was arrested in 2010 after crawling through a McDonald’s drive through window when she was asked to pay. We’re sure she’s delighted with the recent publicity!

It looks like someone was just trying to proliferate the crazy ex-girlfriend stereotype yet again.
