What happened to Seath Jackson shouldn’t happen to anyone—ever. And it was all over a girl and a Facebook post. Seath Jackson made the mistake of falling in love with Amber Wright, a manipulative teen who got him killed.
While they were in love, things were good. Seath Jackson’s parents even welcomed Amber Wright into their home and into their family. However, after the couple parted, the relationship soured fast, and Facebook became a battlefield, where Amber and Seath’s war of words eventually turned deadly.

Perhaps, the back and forth arguing between Seath Jackson and Amber Wright would have remained online without devastating consequences had it not been for Amber Wright’s new boyfriend, Michael Bargo. The hot-tempered young man didn’t play around, and he wasn’t the type to exchange empty threats with anyone. He got even.
Sources say Michael Bargo was jealous of Seath Jackson’s past relationship with Amber. It made him sick to see Seath posting nasty things about Amber Wright online. To everyone, it was obvious he still had deep feelings for Amber Wright, and Michael Bargo knew it.
To get even, Michael Bargo and Amber Wright enticed Seath Jackson to come to a house in Summerfield, Florida by text, making Seath believe he had the chance to win his girlfriend back. When he arrived at the trailer home, he was ambushed by several people. Seath Jackson was struck, shot, and placed in a bathtub, where they continued the assault.
In the end, the teens put Seath Jackson in a sleeping bag, killed him, then placed part of him in paint buckets, which were discarded in a quarry lake. Seath Jackson’s mother had reported him missing after he didn’t come back home for Sunday dinner.
The teens tried to keep their wicked deeds a secret, but it all unraveled after another teen told his mother what really happened to Seath Jackson that night. According to The Sun, one Florida detective stated that Amber Wright was the most diabolical 15-year-old he’d ever met in his life. Michael Bargo grew up rough. He lived in a home where tempers often flared. Planning Seath Jackson’s murder was nothing to him.
