Facebook post falsely accuses man of killings

PHILADELPHIA Some residents in Philadelphia joined a Facebook page called, "Catch the Kensington Strangler."

Six women have been attacked, and three of them were killed.

The Facebook post had a photo of a man, listing his address and contact information.

Soon after, a group of people gathered outside the man's home, prompting him to call police.

He was interviewed and cleared after his DNA didn't match evidence gathered from crime scenes.

Police said whoever created the post could face charges if caught.
