A fitness tracker may be the undoing of a husband’s alibi in a murder case.
A Connecticut native is accused of murdering his wife because of evidence found on her Fitbit. Richard Dabate [[ deh-BATE ]] told Connecticut police a masked intruder broke into his home in December 2015, tied him up and tortured him. He said the intruder shot and killed his wife, Connie, when she came home.
His story fell apart when activity recorded on Connie's Fitbit didn't match up to his timeline. Investigators also used phone and computer records to poke holes in the man’s story.
Police discovered the couple had marital troubles as Dabate had been seeing another woman who had become pregnant with his child. He also withdrew funds from his wife’s accounts without her knowledge. He's now charged with murder.Source: Newsweek
