Canadian Teen Confesses to Murder Via a Bugged Xbox 360

A Canadian teenager was brought to justice by an Xbox 360, Guitar Hero, and an uncle who was already in trouble with the law. The combination has landed the unnamed teenager from Saskatoon, Canada in jail, according to a CBC report. Police had their suspicions that the young man had committed a murder so they approached his uncle to take him down. The murder in question took place in 2009; police allege that the boy murdered 16 year-old Charlotte Jolly with a stolen rifle after a fight in an alley.

The uncle was more than happy to participate in the sting because police promised to drop a drunk driving charge for his help.

The uncle invited his nephew into his home to play some Guitar Hero on the Xbox 360, but what the boy did not know was that police had secretly bugged the system. After a marathon session of the game, the boy confessed to his uncle – and unwittingly to the police. He has been arrested on murder charges and is in custody.

Some free advice to any murderers out there: loose lips sink ships.
