Today's Gumshoes Dust for Fingerprints, Then Read Blogs
After 18-year-old David Ludwig allegedly shot and killed his girlfriend's parents and fled with her, Pennsylvania detectives collected evidence, dusted for fingerprints — and then went hunting for more clues in a surprisingly public, crowded place.
That place was cyberspace. Population: 1 billion and counting.
More specifically, police tapped into the Web logs — or online personal journals — of the double-murder suspect and his 14-year-old girlfriend, Kara Beth Borden. Each kept two blogs.
