Bradley Graham Cooper, a former engineer for Cisco, pled guilty to second-degree murder in the death of his wife yesterday. Part of the evidence against Cooper was a Google map search to the location of her body. Investigators said Cooper did the search the day before the murder, while his computer was connected to Cisco's network.
Earlier this week, Bryan Seely, a network engineer and one-time Marine, played me recordings of two phone calls (embedded below.) The calls were placed by unwitting citizens to the FBI office in San Francisco and to the Secret Service in Washington, D.C. Neither the callers nor the FBI or Secret Service personnel who answered the phone realized that Seely was secretly recording them. He used Google Maps to do it.
