Teens Confess to Brutal Real-Life Murder in World of Warcraf

Teens Confess to Brutal Real-Life Murder in World of Warcraft

(Oct. 25) -- In an incident sure to lend fire to the ongoing debate about whether or not video games encourage real-world violence, a grisly murder in Canada has been linked back to the popular online game World of Warcraft, where the two teenage perpetrators reportedly planned and then bragged about their crime.

The two British Columbia teens, a 16-year-old and an 18-year-old, pleaded guilty Wednesday to raping and murdering 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor, whose charred body was found on a hiking trail in March. The two teens, both gamers, reportedly planned the attacks with texts and online chats and later bragged about their horrific crime in World of Warcraft, even sharing links to newspaper articles detailing the murder.

The teens' identities are protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, but the 16-year-old reportedly said that "he had dreamed about killing someone ever since he was young."

The two reportedly showed no remorse for what they had done. Youth violence expert Raymond Corrado told the Ottawa Citizen that the amount of planning in the crime displays an unusual level of callousness for teenage offenders.

"It's so rare," he said. "I mean statistically it's a complete aberration. Sexual offending, serious sexual assault generally among children and adolescents is very low. This level of brutality is even more rare."

The connection between video games and real-world violence will likely be at the forefront of discussion as the U.S. Supreme Court considers whether or not video games should get the same free speech protections as books and movies next week.
