MIAMI – When her former lover blocked her calls and text messages, a 21-year-old woman used social media platforms to share nude photos, and to harass and threaten, according to the Homestead Police Department.

During the relationship, Lilniece Harris demanded to know her lover’s whereabouts at all times while making threats against her and her family, according to the police arrest form.

“You dont ignore someone who has ur nudes im finna expose this girl i sleep peacefully every night knowing that i harass this girl faithfully,” Harris wrote after publishing the victim’s nude photo, according to police.

When the seven-month-long relationship ended, the victim told police she had blocked Harris on her cell phone, but the threats continued on Twitter, Facebook, and WhatsApp, records show.

“I really hate you, you never cared about me! im gonna kill you im goin for first degree youll be dead soon give me the lo ill come up to that school and shoot you in ur fuckin face they wont be able to find ya body when im done wit u,” Harris wrote, according to police.

Police officers arrested Harris at the Homestead Police Department’s headquarters on Wednesday, and she was at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on Thursday in Miami-Dade County.

Prosecutors filed a domestic violence case against Harris on Thursday for written threats, a felony, and for sexual cyberharassment, a misdemeanor. A judge set her bond at $5,000, ordered house arrest, and issued a stay-away order.

Detectives were asking anyone with information about the case or other related cases to call Miami-Dade County Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
