So much for video games being the one place you can relax and be yourself. Police in Saskatoon—that's in Canada, not Hyrule—were investigating a murder , but needed a way to extract a confession from their 16-year-old suspect. Enter the suspect's uncle; in order to clear his record of a pesky DUI conviction, he agreed to help the cops ensnare (not entrap!) his nephew. By using Guitar Hero III.

Yes, thanks to a "hidden microphone," the police were able to record the teen's confession, which came during an all-night GHIII marathon with his uncle. No statement from Bobby Kotick yet, but we have a feeling that Guitar Hero: Shred ’n’ Surveillance is being fast-tracked as we speak. [via Seattle Weekly]
