These strange sites are blocked on Google Maps and Earth. Why? Your guess is as good as ours.
From our friends at The Daily Dot: In 2009 Jose Barrera’s son, Kevin, 14, was murdered next to the railroad tracks in Richmond, Calif. Last week, Barrera got to relive his death, when he learned that a Google Maps image of the area showed Kevin’s body.
An aerial image posted online has been the subject of debate: some say it depicts a murder scene, while other argue that the “dead body” is actually a wet dog. A different Google earth image, however, leaves much less room for doubt.
