APPLE HEALTH APP DATA USED TO PROSECUTE SEX OFFENDER

STOCK APP HELPS FILL IN THE GAPS IN THE EVIDENCE.

- [SS]

An Afghan refugee in Freiburg, Germany, is on trial for raping and murdering a 19year-old woman, then disposing of her body in a river. Prosecutor­s, however, were unable to confirm his location at the time of the crime but authoritie­s have cracked the man’s iPhone and data from the Apple Health app shows he was “climbing stairs” at the time the body was dumped, placing the defendant on the steps leading down to the riverbank. Police recreated the movements and, lo and behold, the Health app’s new data correspond­ed precisely with that on the phone of the accused.
