A catfish is a person who creates a false online identity to pursue an online romance. According to KETK and the Longview News-Journal, Alejandro Garcia (pictured), 22, had allegedly set up a fake Facebook account. Authorities say he posed as a woman named Monica Ayalin and had several conversations with the victim, Andres Chavez, 19. According to Facebook posts, Ayalin and Chavez were in a relationship and he believed he was meeting “her” for a date. Garcia was arrested in Smith County and booked into the Gregg County Jail.
