Los Angeles Police successfully hacked into iPhone 5s of murdered wife of actor Michael Jace
If anything, it reveals the reality that law enforcement have access to capabilities beyond advertised statements to the press and in courtrooms around the country, though that is a whole different article.
Michael Jace is best known for his role as Detective Julien Lowe from the TV series The Shield, though his acting career goes back to roles in Forrest Gump, Clear and Present Danger, Boogie Nights, and other films.
On May 19, 2014, Jace’s wife, April, was killed. The following day, police arrested Michael and charged him with the murder. April’s cellphone, an Apple iPhone 5s was locked by a passcode. As the investigation limped along, a judge ordered an Apple engineer to help police extract data from the device.
Not surprisingly, the warrant filed by LAPD did not state how the security on the iPhone was bypassed, nor did it identify the forensic expert that was contracted for the job. We also do not know if April’s device had been up to date with the latest version of iOS at the time.
