A teenager who became known as the "hiccup girl" in 2007 — when she hiccuped nonstop for six weeks — is facing murder charges, and her mother suggests that her brief bout of fame led to problems, according to the New York Times.

The girl, Jennifer Mee, went on the "Today" show several times to talk about her hiccups, and it was even rumored that "Good Morning America" contacted her 57 times, according to TVNewser.com

“All of a sudden people knew her name and she would talk to them on different chat sites, and they would act like they knew her when they didn’t,” her mother said on a radio interview, the Times says.

Mee allegedly lured Shannon Griffin, 22, to a home in St. Petersburg where two male accomplices allegedly tried to rob him, and when he resisted, he was shot four times and killed, the article says.


  1. The classic American victimization syndrome. Is ANYBODY responsible for their actions anymore?!?!?
