Instagram Story Of Passed Out Teen, Now In Coma, Leads To Man's Arrest
The victim was found not breathing and with blue lips after Jorge Martinez uploaded footage of her passed out on a couch to his Instagram Story.
An Instagram Story which allegedly depicted a 15-year-old Florida girl naked and passed out on a couch face down at a party prompted her friends to get her help. Now, that girl is in a coma, in critical condition, after investigators said she was fed drugs and sexually assaulted.
Jorge Martinez, 18, has been arrested and charged him with sexual battery, giving a controlled substance to a minor, and making or publishing child pornography. He’s accused of giving the girl drugs and sexually assaulting her before posting that video on social media, according to the Miramar Police Department.
The teen victim had a party at her house on June 24. Information about that party was shared publicly on social media, according to Fox13 in Tampa. Martinez reportedly does not know the victim but showed up to the party where he allegedly gave her two Percocet pills.
Not long after, he allegedly posted a video of the passed out teen, naked and face down on a couch, to his Instagram Story.
In the video he allegedly bragged about having sex with the victim and said, “the Perc got her knocked out bro," according to the arrest report.
After her friends witnessed the video, they reportedly found her and got help. The teen was allegedly found not breathing and with blue lips. She had to be airlifted to a children’s hospital, according to Fox 13.
Martinez reportedly admitted to posting the video to his Instagram account.
He is being held on $550,000 bond. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer who can speak on his behalf at this time.
Anyone else who believes they may have been victimized by Martinez is urged to contact the Miramar Police Department at 954-602-4000.
