Dad uses Find My iPhone to hunt and kill thug who stole son’s iPhone

Find My iPhone is one of the most popular apps that Apple released in the last few years, the app simply allows you to track your lost or stolen iPhone/iPad and iPod Touch by sending details about the device latest locations on the map and you can use lost mode which with it you can erase all the data on your device.. Today we've got another strange story to tell about a U.K. man has been charged with murder after using Find My iPhone to track down and kill the thug who stole his son’s iPhone at knifepoint earlier in the day.

Derek Grant reportedly used Apple’s tracking software to locate the nearby thief after his son was robbed on his way home from work at McDonalds. When Derek confronted the thief and demanded he return the iPhone, the thief blinded him with a knife to eye, which Grant says caused him to lash out and kill him.

Derek used a knife he brought it from his house for safetey to repeatedly stab Bradley. The thief was finally found around 1:15 am and taken to Inverclyde Royal Hospital, where he subsequently died of cardiac arrest.

iPhone theft has been a huge issue for local law enforcement agencies and has been responsible for the rise in crime in cities like New York, San Francisco, and London. Apple added Activation Lock to iOS 7 paired with Find My iPhone in an in an effort to deter iPhone-theft, but the handset is still popular as ever among thieves.
