Google needs to update its search functions so that when someone asks whether it’s alright to commit a murder, he will be simply be greeted with a big fat NO.

Britain’s David Connaughton turned to the search engine while contemplating how to end his marital troubles, and it looks like an inconclusive answer may be somewhat responsible for the death of his wife, Julie.

The Derbyshire Times reports that in the weeks before Connaughton (60) murdered his wife and then himself in August of 2013, he asked Google:

“When someone pisses you off, is it worth killing them?”

Connaughton had just discovered that Julie, his wife of nine years, was planning to divorce him.

“We were aware she had started a new relationship and, from speaking to family, David had anxiety and was concerned he was losing Julie and would be made homeless,” Detective Constable Tony Owen told the Derbyshire Times.

Police searched Connaughton’s computer and found that he searched not only about murder but about divorce and homelessness as well.

Connaughton hit his wife 22 times in the head with a hammer before stabbing himself to death.

The bodies were discovered after Julie’s daughter tried to get in touch with her mother, eventually going to the home and finding the bedroom door locked.

Officers forced the door open and found both of them dead, with a bag over Julie’s battered head.

Connaughton stabbed himself nearly 30 times hours after killing his wife.
