Time Magazine links a surprise typo to murder and Google, adding a digital layer to a police error. "Student Googles Himself, Finds Out He's Wanted for Murder" goes the headline.
The story concerns an accidental doppelganger. One man discovers that he's wanted for arrest on suspicion of murder. But it's not him. Instead, Florida police entered a single vowel's typo into a public database.
Why emphasize the cyber aspect, rather than the police procedural? A more thrilling story, apparently. That's the vibe coming off of the source for Time's article (whence they copied the headline, too).
Perhaps the doppelganger aspect was also appealing.
Don't forget Time's great contribution to cyberfear:
