An Indiana woman tracked her boyfriend using an Apple AirTag device over a suspected affair; then after a dispute, ran him over and killed him.

According to a probable cause affidavit obtained by, 26-year-old Gaylyn Morris told a witness she had used an AirTag to follow boyfriend Andre Smith, also 26, to an Indianapolis bar earlier this month. At the location, Morris and Smith were seen getting into a heated dispute, with Morris swinging an empty wine bottle towards the other woman Smith was with – prompting the bar owner to ask them to leave.

According to court records, Morris got into her car outside the bar and clipped Smith, causing him to fall to the ground. After he had fallen, Morris next “backed over Smith, then pulled forward and hit him for a third time.” Morris then got out of the car and attempted to chase after the other woman before being arrested by the police who had arrived at the scene.

Smith was pronounced dead at the scene by the Indianapolis Fire Department on June 3, according to an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police report. Morris was later charged with murder, according to the Indianapolis Star.

The AirTag is a small, portable device launched in April of 2021 designed to help people locate their belongings, such as keys and wallets. But concerns have been raised about the tracker’s GPS locating unsuspecting people, with model Brooks Nader saying she was tracked after a stranger had slipped the device into her coat. Apple announced in February new safety features to notify people of how to navigate unwanted tracking.

“AirTag was designed to help people locate their personal belongings, not to track people or another person’s property, and we condemn in the strongest possible terms any malicious use of our products,” Apple said in a statement earlier this year. Messages made to Apple by regarding the latest incident were not immediately returned.
