Street View pulls Canadian murder scene

'We're very sorry if it caused any distress'

7 Elements of Radically Simple OS Migration

Google has pulled images of an Ontario murder scene from Street View, the Windsor Star reports.

At around 2am on 21 July, 2009, 24-year-old Nicholas Ingram was stabbed to death in the parking lot of the Leopard's Lounge and Broil strip club at 1190 Wyandotte St. W, Windsor.

Later that day, the Steet View vehicle passed by and captured the scene with "yellow police tape and a pool of blood". The pictures didn't go live until this week, and Google yesterday obscured the offending area.

Google Canada spokeswoman Tamara Micner said: “Street View on Google Maps shows what you would see if you were walking down the street yourself, so sometimes that means we capture sensitive or objectionable imagery. We worked quickly to remove this image after we were notified, and we're very sorry if it caused any distress.” ®
