Parents So Obsessed With Second Life Baby That They Neglect Real Baby

This is an extremely twisted story. Korean couple Kim Yoo-chul, 41, and Choi Mi-sun, 25, met in 2008 in an internet chat room and fell in love over their mutual love of Second Life. Three months ago, they had a baby together—at the same time, they also had a baby in Second Life. But because they were so obsessed with the game, they spent about 12 hours a night together at internet cafes playing it. They fed, clothed, and nurtured their virtual baby while leaving their real baby home alone without food. One night in September, they came home—and their real baby had died of malnutrition. The couple admitted to leaving her alone and feeding her rotten formula and are being charged with child abuse and neglect. Talk about an internet love gone wrong. [Daily Mail]
