10 CRIMES Caught On GOOGLE EARTH
Garage owner fakes Google 'murder' in Edinburgh street
Google Maps Street View can provide a fascinating insight into the lives of the people it captures as they go about their life. Sometimes they are spotted in the middle of an embarrassing fall or doing something highly amusing. However, on occasion, sights are spotted that appear very sinister indeed - such as this grisly-seeming spectacle in the city of Amsterdam. The photo in question - which has gone viral after sweeping the internet - has been claimed by some to show a terrible murder. The Google Maps shot, taken from the air, shows a waterside jetty jutting into a lake in Beatrixpark. While it may well look like a sinister scene from the angle shown, there is, in fact, a much more mundane explanation for the shot. In reality, far from being a murder, the Google Maps image shows an owner with their friend and a dog - and the stain is nothing more than a pool of water.

Hopefully, you would call the police, as an alarmed member of the public did after seeing this scene on Google Street View. The camera car recorded the disturbing scene from different angles as it travelled down Giles Street in Leith, Edinburgh, showing a man apparently being attacked from a distance and his assailant walking away from the scene. But police who traced the assailant to a car repair shop in the road were relieved to discover it was a well-timed prank by two mechanics. He told the Independent how he and Gary Kerr, a year-old mechanic, decided to have some fun when they saw the Street View car approaching in August
When the above Google street view pic was taken, in , the women were still inside. Google appears to have since censored the house itself. For every person who dies in Nagoro village, a life-sized doll is built in memoriam and placed somewhere in the village where the deceased might have been. The tiny village even has one teacher and two student dolls in the now closed village school. As of , resident and doll maker Ayano Tsukimi had made over of them.
Google Maps Street View has captured what looks to be a shocking murder in broad daylight on a suburban UK street. A grisly image shows a young girl lying face down in the road - has she been the victim of an awful crime? Her arms lie either side of her body and one of her shoes has fallen off and is next to her foot. I fell over while I was playing with my friend and thought it would be funny to play dead. The image was first spotted in when residents who saw the photo on Google were horrified to see what had happened to the little girl.
