In 2007 Jennifer Mee captured global attention as the Hiccup Girl, a 15-year-old who spent nearly six weeks searching for a remedy for her non-stop bout of hiccups – a journey documented by multiple visits to NBC’s Today. Now, Jennifer Mee, 19, is making headlines once again, this time for being charged with first-degree murder.
Jennifer Mee, 19, of St. Petersburg and two others are charged with first-degree murder in the death of Shannon Griffin, 22, on Saturday.
Mee lured Griffin to a home where the others robbed him at gunpoint, Sgt. T.A. Skinner of the St. Petersburg Police Department said in a late Sunday news release. Griffin struggled with the suspects and was shot several times, police said.
Mee and the others admitted their involvement, Skinner said.
Mee was being held without bond early Monday. Pinellas County jail records did not show whether she had an attorney. Telephone numbers listed for Mee’s mother have been disconnected.
