Your Google searches can be the death of more than your unlucky spouse, as one unhappy housewife discovered. After her husband was murdered, her computer was sequestered and her recent Google search terms incriminated her, fingering her for the crime.

Implications - Some of the Google searches that were found in the woman's Internet history included "how to commit murder," "instant poisons," "undetectable poisons," and "fatal digoxin doses." There's some doubt that these searches and her husband's untimely demise are somewhat of a coincidence, but it does make her a prime suspect. Cases like these make the bizarre ones featured on television shows like CSI and Law and Order seem all the more possible.
