Murder 2.0

Life has changed because of the Internet.

We do business very differently thanks to Email. We interact very differently thanks to IM and Facebook. We defiantly look for information very differently thanks to Google. And as these evolve to become a part of our life, the kind of information we look for seems to be changing as well.

You would imagine somethings are just common knowledge. Why would you need to look it up on Google? Well, if your part of the Web Enabled generation, nothing is too common too not be Googled. Take for instance, 29 year old, Neil Entwistle.

Allegedly, he wanted to kill his wife, using a knife. Classic stabbing to death process from what I gather. However, no harm in Googleing it just to make sure he has the the basic down.

As CNN reports:

"A police detective testified Tuesday that a laptop computer taken from the home of a British man accused of killing his wife and 9-month-old daughter was used to search online for "how to kill with a knife" four days before the slayings."

"Prosecutors, however, sought to indicate that Entwistle was planning to kill his wife and child, saying he researched methods of murder and suicide in the days before he fatally shot them."

So turns how, the Google search helped and Neil found out that Shooting to death is a better method, allegedly!
