Murder scene

In September 2016, 57-year-old Myrna Nilsson was found dead in her house in Adelaide, Australia, the Australian Associated Press reports. She was beaten and tied up when the neighbors saw the body.

Nilsson’s daughter-in-law, Caroline Nilsson, 26, stated the group of men attacked the house and beat and tied up her and her mother-in-law. However,  in March, police accused her of murder and fabrication of the story basing on the data taken from the victim’s Watch.

According to this data, the heart rate measurements show that an attack happened at 6:38 p.m. and Myrna Nilsson had died by 6:45 p.m. But, Caroline Nilsson stated the attack occurred at 10 p.m., which is 3 hours later, and then she called for help.   

“If that evidence is accepted, it tends to contradict the accused’s version of an argument occurring between the deceased and these men outside the laundry for a period of up to 20 minutes,” Matteo said.

Previously,  the FBI attempted to access the Texas shooter’s iPhone with his dead finger. Unfortunately, they tried to do it 2-days after the last time the phone was unlocked.
