Top three mobile application threats

E-romance claimed its latest victim this week when a 28-year-old woman was found dead after being spurned by the man she had fallen for over the Internet. Julie Yasa's body was found in woods an a suburb of Detroit after police received a call from the man she is believed to have spent two weeks tracking down. He called to say he'd seen a body in the woods. The local police investigation and found Yasa dead -- under her body, a pile of sleeping pills. An autopsy revealed no definitive cause of death, forcing the police release Yasa's would-be lover. His story has it that Yasa arrived at his home on Saturday. The couple proceeded to get on down to it, at the conclusion of which, the guy took his Parisian lover to the end of his driveway and told her to clear off back to France. Unconsoled, she returned two days later and threatened to kill herself. Unmoved, the man refused her assistance or access. Detroit police said that the man could not be named because he may yet be charged. A spokesman said there were "inconsistencies" in his story that were currently being investigated. ®
