A garage owner was forced to apologize for faking a “murder scene” in an Edinburgh street, which was caught on Google Street View. This comes after a disturbing image of a ‘murder’, captured by the Street View facility of Google Maps, went viral for some time, before it was revealed that it was just a hoax. The incident happened in August 2012 but it was not until a year later.
The Scottish man said “We had forgotten about it when the police arrived a year later and we apologized for wasting police time. They found it funny.”
