OMG! I just read about this teen boy and I'm devastated! Frankie Hernandez, 17, had an argument with his 25-year-old girlfriend, Jasmine Diaz, because he allegedly dropped her iPhone and broke it. She was so enraged about it that while he was standing in front of her Lincoln Aviator, she slammed on the gas and run him over, killing him! WTH? Really? Who kills somebody over a stupid iPhone? 

But what's worse is that after running him over, she just took off! How could she? What kind of person does this? Police eventually found her hiding in her mother's apartment and have now charged her with manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident.

The image that I can't get out of my head is that of Frankie's mom arriving at the scene of the crime and seeing her youngest son practically dead in the middle of the street. She told the Daily News that by the time she got there, it was too late. "Head was crushed. He wasn't moving. There was blood everywhere." Can you even imagine? I think I would die.

According to Frankie's family, the couple had been going out for a year and they had a volatile relationship. The argument that ended up in his death was apparently fueled by alcohol. My very first question is, what was a 25-year-old doing with a 17-year-old? I know it's probably impossible to control a boy that age, but the family knew it was a violent relationship, why was it allowed to continue?

On the other hand, I'm sorry, but there's something wrong with a 25-year-old woman who find a 17-year-old attractive. Plus, while I'm assuming here, I thought having sex with someone under the age of 17 was considered statutory rape... 

Either way, now a mom has to bury her youngest way before his time and a young woman will probably spend a long time in jail.

What would you do if your teen son was going out with an adult woman? Leave us your comment below.

First and foremost, my prayers are with the family in this time of loss.  What I want to know is if they were concerned about his age difference girlfriend, did they at least try and put an end to it, or put their two cents in.  I know when I dated guys in the past and I brought them around my parents, they gave me their two cents about the guys I would bring around.  When we don't know what his parents thought of her, all we can do is pray for justice on this gal.  And God one day will judge her.

Personally this wouldn't of happened if that was my son I would have put an end too it before it started second if I was that boys mother the police would be putting me in jail right along with that lil girl

Terribly sad, what a senseless tragedy. This young woman made her first mistake by going out with someone still considered a child. He was seventeen and even if his parents may have advised or prohibited this meeting it's hard to control a 17 year old but. But the everyone knows the law, stay away from the minors! May God help this child's family and help this young woman with her issues.

My son and daughter will NOT be dating adults while they are in my household and they are minors. It will be alot easier for me to keep track of WHO they know since beginning this Sept. I will be homeschooling my children.

And that WOMAN would be a dead woman if she killed my son. There would be no jail for her, because I would be the one arrested.

I cant agree more with acrogodess, that B**ch would have got the beating of her damn life time. I'm sure his family didn't want him to be with her but since he is a Male probably didn't take it as he would be the one who got hurt, and to be honest the more you tell the kids NO dont do that, No dont be w/ that person, the more they want to do it. And older weman know how to maniplate younger guys!

I have a cuisine that is going though the same sh*t, he is 23 yrs old and he has been in a relationship w/ a 36 yrs GRAMA. I hate her soo much, she changed him and his whole life style. He and I where super close but when he started going out with her things change. On our side of are family we all didn't want him to be with her because we could see that she was not a good person. Yeah she treated him right (at first) but she didn't let him go out with his friends/family by himself. She had to be with him 24/7. She started a lot of problems with him and our family, so lil by lil he cut us all off. When he would have problems with her he would call me to talk about it, and I would straight up tell him she was no good for him, she has kids and a grandchild and she got her tubes tied so he knows that a feature with her well there really wont be one.
