The Virtual Murders

On April 21, 2005, five Filipino youth leaders were murdered at dawn, all in a span of ten minutes.

The National Bureau of Investigation is on the case. They'll never find the bodies, though -- because murders took place in cyberspace. reports the alleged mass hack-delete of guild master accounts on the Philippine Ragnarok Online game service.

The story sounds like a good high-level whodunit: Corruption rumors! Corporate intrigue! Conspiracy theories! Gang wars! Tournament rivalries! Public outrage! Bereaved followers! Cries for justice!

How will the Philippines' first virtual murder mystery unfold? Stay tuned! ;)
