Women in the US tracked their partners using Apple AirTag after they allegedly killed them


A woman in the United States is said to have been charged with murder after it was alleged that she used an Apple AirTag to track down her partner and then ran him over after seeing him with another woman.

The Register said Gaylyn Morris is said to have used the gadget to locate her companion, Andre Smith, at Tilly’s Pub in an Indianapolis shopping center in the early hours of June 3, according to The Register.

Police say Morris drove up to the parking lot and asked if Smith was in the pub, saying she had a GPS tracker that indicated he was there, according to an official affidavit by Detective Gregory Shue.

According to the investigation, the witness stated that Morris subsequently observed Smith while he was present at the company.

Morris, Smith, and an unidentified female friend got into a fight as the witness entered the bar. In the aftermath of the altercation, the witness recorded two videos and gave them to the police.

An eyewitness claimed that Morris snatched a beer bottle from Smith’s buddy and swung it at him, but Smith stepped in. After that, the bar’s owner asked the three patrons to leave.

According to the affidavits of other witnesses, Morris claimed to have used an Apple AirTag to determine Smith’s whereabouts.

The affidavit states that Morris then walked away, got into her car, and drove away from the scene. It is stated that when Smith went outside, Morris had parked up outside the Metro Diner just to the east of Tilly’s and drove up on the sidewalk toward Smith, running him over.

When one of the witnesses sought to stand in front of Morris’s car to protect her boyfriend, as the affidavit stated, Morris allegedly drove around the witness, striking him in the left hip with her car’s mirror, then running over and dragging Smith.

The affidavit stated that a certified nurse who tried to save Smith “could not do CPR because Smith’s torso was totally under the automobile between the front wheels with his head on the driver’s side behind the front tyre and his feet were at the passenger side front wheel.”

They spotted Smith hiding behind a dark blue 2010 Chevrolet Impala registered to Morris when they arrived. That’s when he was declared deceased.

Asked by police about using an AirTag to track Smith, Morris is claimed to have originally denied doing so, according to the report.

According to the affidavit, when Morris was questioned about whether or not a tracker would be found on Smith’s vehicle if a search warrant were executed, he admitted installing the Apple wireless tracker in the backseat of Smith’s vehicle near a cup holder.
