On Friday morning at 8:15 a.m., 19-year-old Jonathan Rosa posted the following message on his Facebook page: “Good and evil two sides fighting for dominance.” Just a few hours later, he was allegedly involved in a carjacking that turned into a horrific crash that killed three children in Philadelphia.
Rosa’s attorney, Christopher Warren, told press on Monday morning that Rosa had turned himself in to police on Sunday night, accompanied by his mother and pastor. Charges were filed against Rosa and Cornelius Crawford on Monday afternoon.
On Thursday evening, the night before the carjacking, Rosa shared the following photo on his Facebook page, where he lists his occupation as “Former Contract Killer at swaqqd’up societyy” and his Facebook name as “Jonny Sofargone Rosa.”
Via phone on Monday afternoon, Warren told Philadelphia magazine that Rosa was a “good kid who made a bad mistake by being in that car.” He adds that Rosa works for Crossroads Community Center, a Christian organization at Sixth and Cambria. “I think they spread the Gospel,” said Warren.
The latest post on Rosa’s Facebook page is a message from his mother. “PLEASE PRAY FOR JONATHAN MY SON,” she wrote on Friday night at 9:42 p.m.
