Accused Raleigh Murderer Used Google to Search for ‘Neck’ and ‘Snap’



Local CBS affiliate WRAL reports a Raleigh, N.C. murder suspect had used Google for research.

Robert Petrick searched for the words “neck,” “snap,” “break” and “hold” on an Internet search engine before his wife died, according to prosecutors Wednesday.

More than two years after Janine Sutphen’s body was discovered floating in a Raleigh lake, investigators continue to find new evidence on computers seized from Robert Petrick’s home that prosecutors say support their arguments that Petrick killed his wife.

The Google search was the latest in recently discovered evidence found in the 100 million pages of content removed from computers.

This is sure to spark a wave of CSI techies examining suspect’s recent search results.
