Dead wrestler's Web page was altered

Investigators are looking into who altered pro wrestler Chris Benoit’s Wikipedia entry to mention his wife’s death hours before authorities discovered the bodies of the couple and their 7-year-old son. —Dead wrestler’s Web page was altered (Yahoo! | AP (will expire))

I wasn’t particularly following this story, but this is an interesting wrinkle. When I first started teaching journalism at Seton Hill in 2003, it was common for mainstream publications to publish information that a quick Google search would reaveal as a hoax (or at least very suspicious). Now we see journalists making routine references to the nuts and bolts of the new information economy.

Update, 29 June: “The anonymous individual responsible for suggesting, 14 hours before police discovered the body, that WWE wrestler Chris Benoit’s wife was dead is confessing, saying his/her comment was a ‘terrible coincidence.'” –WikiNews

Is that the end of the story?
