WED Fan writes "According the Spokesman Review, a man drove nearly 6000 miles to kill a man he met while gaming on the Internet.

A man charged with killing a 25-year-old Boise State University student met him on Internet gaming sites and then used the Web to track him down, according to court records.
...
Authorities say Delling embarked on a 6,000-mile Western road trip that left two people dead and another seriously injured.


Details of what games and what might have transpired to trigger such an event, have yet to be revealed."
