Maple Story MURDER

Virtual 'Murder' Leads To Real-World Arrest
In Maple Story, the 43-year-old Japanese piano teacher's sudden divorce from her online husband in a virtual game world made her so angry that she logged on and killed his digital persona. The man complained to police when he discovered that his beloved online avatar was dead.

In the Real World, the divorcee has not yet been formally charged, but if convicted could face a prison term of up to five years or a fine up to $5,000.

Look again. That was Maple Story. Nothing to do with Second Life at all.

Noted, and corrected! The story has disappeared from the original source, which was likely called on the error as well.

Good Detective Work Tateru Nino!
THANK-YOU!
