Mass. man indicted for using GPS to orchestrate attack on ex-wife in Portsmouth – The Union Leader

A Massachusetts man is facing new charges for secretly planting a GPS-device inside his estranged wife’s car and directing a bat-wielding assailant to a Portsmouth home where she was savagely beaten in bed alongside her boyfriend, prosecutors said.


Here is a classic example of how we don’t want GPS being used. The good news is these guys were caught. I sometimes fear when curating stories like this, that I am giving other people ideas, particularly people who want to abuse technology to nefarious ends, but then as my little 6 year old tells me, the bad guys get caught. In this case the same GPS information that helped him track his estranged wife, resulted in the evidence that is likely to see him convicted.
