According to the excellent true crime weblog The True Crime Weblog, a Runescape player may have been involved in a very, very odd crime.
This much is known: Columbia, Tennessee resident Rebecca "Becky" Bargy tied her husband James up, wrapped his face in an ace bandage and left him on the floor of their home for several hours. He suffocated. Becky says it was part of some weird sex thing, but James' sister thinks it was murder.
Here's where the gaming comes in: Someone using the same screen name as Rebecca Bargy, "shorty187blr," could be found on several webpages relating to MMORPGs, mainly Runescape. User shorty187blr was even banned from a Runescape board.
Same person? Maybe. Weird crime? Maybe. Interesting story? Yeah, definitely.
