An aspiring dentist was stabbed to death at his apartment allegedly at the hands of his teenage friends who tweeted him just minutes before saying: 'This time of the night is when phone calls and texts are regretted in the morning.'
Connor McGowan, 18, has been arrested for the murder of Andrew Singler, 23, both from Detroit, who he was believed to have been friends with for at least two years.

Police are releasing limited details about the stabbing or the motive behind the murder.
At 4:13am on Saturday, police responded to a 'subject that received a life-threatening injury' in the 6200 block of Rothbury Way, according to a news release.
Singler was later pronounced dead at an area hospital.
The former high school football player would often talk to the victim on Twitter and some exchanges hint to the fact the pair were good friends and hung out together on occasion.
Singler was an aspiring pediatric dentist who was looking to go to graduate school after his May graduation, said his mother, Janis Singler, of Rochester. He was the youngest of five children
His sister-in-law Melissa Lukes told the Lansing State Journal: 'He’s so good with kids, his nieces and his nephews. That’s why he wanted to become a pediatric dentist — because he loved kids.'
Tributes poured in for Andrew on a memorial page and on Twitter.
Brandon Green tweeted: 'Waking up tomorrow might be the hardest thing I've ever done. I can't stop thinking about how much I miss you man.'
Shay Leigh, who was friends with both of them wrote: 'I will miss you so much. I love you with all of my heart and always will.'
