GPS drives father to murder

Man kills himself and kids after tracing cheating wife

A new approach to endpoint data protection

A man in North America shot his five children dead before turning the gun on himself after GPS technology helped him to discover that his wife was cheating on him.

With a little help from his daughter, James Harrison, a casino security guard from the Deer Run mobile home park in Tacoma, Washington, exploited GPS technology on his wife’s mobile phone one evening late last week to trace her to a nearby convenience store.

When he confronted his wife, she refused to come home and said she was leaving him for the man she was with at the store.

Sometime after his discovery, four of Harrison’s children were found dead in bed from multiple gunshot wounds. The fifth child also died from gunshot wounds, but after a violent struggle, Police believe.

Harrison’s body was found in his car with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Police think he intended to shoot his wife, but when he was unable to locate her a second time, realised the gravity of his actions and shot himself. ®
