The Fitbit Alibi: 21st century technology used to help solve Wisconsin mom’s murder

I saw this case on 48 hours, it seemed straight out of a CSI episode. A lot of smart devices we own track our movements. Sometimes we set them up to do this, other times we don’t even know they’re tracking us.  These devices now end up helping law enforcement solve cases and to determine innocence or guilt.

In this case, a Fitbit device was used to exonerate one person and an Android phone using Google History was used to convict the real murderer.   In a previous blog post last year, I posted a link to where a Fitbit was used to convict a man of his wife’s murder.
