Google Street View Murder Scene Turns Out To Be A Prank

by Ben Olson

A couple of Scottish guys thought they'd have a little fun with the Google Street View camera car headed their direction. They faked a murder scene realistic enough to cause at least one person to call the police. One of the guys layed down in the road while the other stood over him holding a pick axe handle. The picture was taken last summer and by the time police arrived to investigate the "murder," he had forgotten all about it. He apologized for wasting the police time, but says the officers found the whole thing hilarious. I wonder why the Google photo car didn't stop at the time...
