UK Dad Tracks and Kills Thief Using Find My iPhone

By Gary Cutlack on at

A dad found himself in a grim and ultimately fatal knife fight over a nicked iPhone, after apparently using the Find My iPhone feature to track down a local thief.

The miserable tale began when 20-year-old student Jordan Grant had his iPhone stolen from him at knifepoint in Greenock last year. He went home, told his dad, who tracked the location of the phone, tooled up with a knife from home and went out to get it back. 29-year-old Patrick Bradley was killed in the resulting battle to get the phone back.

Derek Grant pleaded guilty to culpable homicide and is awaiting his sentence. [Daily Record via Cult of Mac]
