    If this was a Furry it should be taken to a vet and put down.

    Mostly urban legends and long, thin links. The Night Stalker murderer liked AC/DC, two prime candidates for suicide attempts thought they heard something on a Judas Priest album before they got drunk, stoned and tried it (one succeeded) and a lawyer thought he saw dollar signs (he was wrong).

    Seems like D&D crimes were all urban legends, with no corroborating information ever coming up. I could be wrong on that one, but if I am, I'll bet a good stack of cash they are still long, thin links with much heavier circumstances taking precedence.

    I kinda remember finding out about D & D back in the 80's about and saw a dragonlance books. I wonder if anyone remembers when Waldenbooks had D & D books right next to the religion section and i would get looks when i went to the D & D section. I remember B. Dalton's also had a D & D section as well.

    These days Barnes & Nobel keep their gaming books in the SciFi section, usually next to the Star Wars novels.

    There was a D& D related case in MI at MSU. A really mentally ill kid disappeared while playing it. He turned up several months later in some far away city (I think it was New Orleans), and it was discovered that he had been hiding for months. He later killed himself. I don't remember all the specifics. The concerns was that he was a schizophrenic who thought the game was real. They made a miniseries starring Tom Hanks (in his Bosom Buddies days) that was based on the whole game becoming real for unstable people premise, that probably scared a lot of parents at the time.
