Second Death
10/25/2008: In Japan, a 43-year-old woman was physically arrested for a virtual murder. The woman, a piano teacher in Miyazaki, was upset when her virtual husband in the multi-player online role playing game MapleStory divorced her without any warning. Using his login information, which she had obtained while their MapleStory matrimony was still intact, the woman hacked into the man's account and assassinated his online persona. Upon discovering what his web-ex had done, the man complained to the police and the woman was arrested on suspicion of illegally accessing a computer and manipulating electronic data. The two had never met in real life.
