New details have emerged concerning the murder of Briton Stefan Pakeerah, which the British tabloid press have blamed on the influence of Rockstar title Manhunt – leading to many chain stores removing the title from shop shelves and calls for all violent games to be banned. It now transpires that the 17 year old murderer did not own a copy of the game, which should not be sold to those below the age of 18, but that 14 year old Stefan did. Ironically it is primarily the victim’s family that blames the game for influencing the murderer and they have indicated that they are “saddened and disappointed” that the game has almost sold out across the UK, in the wake of the controversy. Investigating police though are satisfied that the game has nothing to do with the murder, with a spokesman commenting that, “We haven’t connected the game with the murder and we’ve already made that statement, but some sections of the media chose to ignore it… the motive was robbery.” Source: MCV
