Submission + - Wikipedia vandal predicts death

An anonymous reader writes: A wikipedia vandal inserted into wikipedia information that Nancy Benoit was dead 14 hours before police found out. The vandal later came forward and said it was just a coincidence, and apologizing for ever vandalizing wikipedia:
