Arkansas Teen's Text Backfires

A teenager thought it would be funny to text a random phone number saying she had hidden a body, but the joke backfired.

The number texted by the 15-year-old Arkansas girl belonged to a detective. Police found her address by tracing her mobile number.

Her text read: "I hid the body... Now what?". She said she got the idea from a website. Police did not find the prank funny and said it wasted time. The girl was released with a warning.
