Did Man use Google to research how to murder?

By Derek Sooman on November 14, 2005, 1:53 PM
Seemingly, the words "neck," "snap," "break" and "hold" where those searched for on Google by a man who (it is alleged) shortly afterwards killed his wife.

Robert Petrick is charged with murdering his wife, Janine Sutphen, nearly two years after her body was found floating in a Raleigh lake.
Evidence of the computer search has been found on computers belonging to Petrick. He also apparently searched for information on lake levels, water currents and boat ramps. So, let this be a lesson to you: if you are Googling for information on how to best kill your wife, remember to clear your Internet history. (Thatís a joke, by the way, and not a good one...)
