By on


A Japanese woman has found herself in the a prison cell and is facing charges of illegally accessing a computer and manipulating data after deleting her virtual husband’s user account after he divorced the woman suddenly. The 43-year-old piano teacher from Miyazaki travelled 620 miles to go to Sapporo – where her “husband” works.

Police say that she accessed his log-in details on Maplestory and then proceeded to delete the character. "I was suddenly divorced, without a word of warning. That made me so angry," she said, according to investigators. If you don’t know what Maplestory is – you aren’t missing much, it’s some MMORPG made in Korea, and is popular in Asia.
