A Georgia woman is angry after she says police attempted to notify her that her son was dead with a Facebook message.
Anna Lamb-Creasey said had no idea that someone who is not a "friend" can send her a message and that it goes to a box in her message folder, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. That's where she found a message asking her to call the police in Clayton County, but ignored it because the account was listed under Misty Hancock.
Lamb-Creasey said she had been looking for her son, Rickie Lamb, 30, for weeks and that he had been missing since Jan. 25. Her son died on Jan. 24 when a driver hit him as he crossed a street.

Her daughter called the number on the Misty Hancock account on Feb. 14 and an officer gave her the bad news. Lamb Creasey is angry that police couldn't reach her by more "conventional means" rather than let her son's body lie unclaimed for 20 days, according to the report.
