Jennifer Mee, ‘Hiccup Girl,’ Charged With Murder In Florida

Victim’s brother: Hiccup girl’s Internet Trap led to Homicide

ST. PETERSBURG – Rachel Robidoux woke up from a deep sleep to the phone ringing.

It was her daughter, Jennifer Mee, who had gained international attention in 2007 for her inability to stop hiccupping for five weeks.

Mee, 19, was calling from jail to say she had been arrested for her part in the Saturday night killing of Shannon Griffin. St. Petersburg police say Mee met Griffin, 22, over the internet and lured him to be robbed.

Robidoux said life for her daughter – who became known worldwide as “The Hiccup Girl” — has been nothing but trouble since national exposure over her hiccups.

“Honestly, the best way I can describe it, is that they call it a case of the hiccups, but I call it the curse of the hiccups,” she said Monday afternoon in a telephone interview. “It felt like a nightmare.”

Griffin had come to St. Petersburg from Petal, Miss. about two years ago, according to his uncle, Shawn Griffin. A high school football star who played linebacker, Griffin was getting ready to head back to Mississippi for a family get-together, Shawn Griffin said.

But first, he decided to meet up with Mee, who he was introduced to on a social networking site, according to police. Now his family said they are making burial arrangements.

Speaking at an afternoon press conference, St. Petersburg Police Chief Charles Harmon said investigators have a good idea which site, but won’t know for sure until records are pulled.

About 10:30 p.m. Saturday, Mee lured Griffin to the 511 Seventh St. N. , where Laron Raiford, 20, and Lamont Newton, 22, robbed him at gunpoint and took several items and about “$50 or $60” from him, Harmon said. Griffin struggled with the attackers and was shot several times, police said. At the press conference, Harmon said police are still trying to determine who was holding the gun when it went off.

The shooting took place as Mee was leaving the apartment, police say. All three have been cooperative, police say.

Mee, Newton and Raiford were charged with first-degree murder and booked at the Pinellas County Jail with no bail set.

Newton was Mee’s current boyfriend, said her father, Chris Robidoux.

Initially, Griffin reached out to Mee via the Internet. Harmon said Griffin “friended” her on a social network site.

News of the killing was a shock to Griffin’s family.

“He was a good kid,” said Griffin’s brother, Javon Merritt said. “He didn’t hurt nobody. It just doesn’t make any sense for a good kid like that to be murdered for no reason, just to be set up and murdered. He was only 22 years old.”
