Blog leads cops to killer ... but is it admissible evidence?

A blogger's last post led cops to a suspect who allegedly robbed and killed the victim and his sister.

Cops zeroed in on 23-year-old Jin Lin, who once dated the sister, because Simon Ng posted this to his blog.

But it's hearsay, right? Or can the post be admitted as evidence?

For an interesting (maybe only if you're J.D. impaired) analysis of the admissibility of this blog entry at trial as it might play out in Virginia, check out Crimlaw and this post.

Read the New York Daily News story here.

Thanks to Have Opinion, Will Travel for the links.

Oh, yeah, the blog won't actually be needed as evidence in this case -- Lin confessed when cops confronted him.
