GPS Tracker Features in Murder

It's the low-cost, high-tech way to find your prey


A North Carolina man is facing first-degree murder charges after allegedly using a GPS tracker to follow his estranged wife to the home of a man he then shot.

According to testimony provided by investigators in the case, Raul Contreres purchased a Little Buddy GPS tracker at a Best Buy on July 17, 2010, two days before the murder. A friend of Contreres testified that Contreres said he wanted to place the device in his daughter's backpack in case she got lost, according to the Times-News in North Carolina.
