A Japanese woman was arrested for murdering her digital husband in an on-line role playing game after a messy divorce. No need to reread that sentence again, you got it right the first time – the woman was so enraged because her virtual husband divorced her that she knocked off his role playing avatar. Evidently she perpetrated the heinous act of digital spousicide after hacking her virtual ex’s game login. The crime was reported by the murdered ex which, if you think about it, is something he wouldn’t have been able to do had he actually been dead; it also makes the job of the police a lot easier.
Not being sure what to make of this news story, for the moment I’ll just file it under Jeremiah 17:9.
