Say What Now? Man Shot Dead After GPS Confusion Takes Him to the Wrong House


This is why it’s imperative to learn how to use your technology and know your surroundings.

When Rodrigo Diaz set out to pick up his friends and go ice skating, he was in high spirits. But when his GPS navigation system took him and some friends to the wrong house, he was assumed to be an intruder—and shot dead.

Friends of Diaz claim that the then 69-year-old Phillip Sailors saw the car arrive at his house in Lilburn, Georgia, through a window. Moments later, Sailors appeared in his driveway, firing a gun into the air. As Diaz attempted to drive away, Sailors fired a shot which fatally wounded him.

Since, Sailors has been charged with murder with malice. His lawyer, Michael Puglise, explains:

“He is very distraught over the loss of life from the defense of his home. This incident happened late in the evening hours when he was home with his wife and he assumed it was a home invasion and he maintains his innocence.”

That’s so sad.
