“A Memphis woman was arrested and charged with first-degree murder after she bludgeoned her boyfriend to death with an iPod. [...]

Brad Pulaski had died of blunt trauma to the head after being repeatedly bludgeoned with an iPod, a popular MP3 player produced by Apple. [...]

According to law officers, Mathers was hysterical when police arrived and told them that she killed her boyfriend only after he accused her of illegally downloading music and erased about 2,000 of her MP3s. Mathers complained that it took 3 months to build her music collection.”

Editor’s note: Satire.

“evidence suggested the murder was the result of a domestic dispute after Pulaski erased the contents of Mathers iPod”

To bad for him that she didnt have the iPod mini - he might have stood a better chance of walking away from the incident.

Another great ‘‘News’‘... The news section is really going downhill IMO. When there is nothing new, don’t try to invent stuff, that’s just weird.
