Thanks Google Maps

Chinese man abducted as child finds parents using google mapsA Chinese man who had been abducted 23 years ago has located his real family by using Google Maps. Luo Gang, who was grabbed near his school at the age of 5,  could only remember that the town where he had lived had two bridges so he went searching on Google maps.  He found an area in Sichuan’s Linshui county and contacted a missing children’s website. As luck would have it, they had info on a couple who had lost their son 23 years ago and they were soon reunited. Dear god, doesn’t every friggin town in China have two bridges?

Thanks a Lot Google Maps

Couple killed because hitman used google mapsWisconsin investigators suspect a wealthy couple may have been  accidentally bumped off in 2010 after a hitman got the wrong address while using Google Maps. Sheez, lucky the hitman didn’t have an iPhone, just saying . Unfortunately the couple’s son has been lingering in prison after being found guilty of his parents murders despite the next door neighbors claiming they were receiving death threats at the time. Hmm, I’m guessing cashing in his dad’s $50,000 cheque the day after the murders didn’t help his case. BUT investigators claim that when you type in the neighbor’s address it shows the couples house. Straw clutching?

Want sauce with that?
