"They": H? A? M/F?
2 persons/creatures/things? 3? 4? 5? More than five? More than 10? More than 20? More than 50? More than 100? More than 1,000?
Did any of "them" create the technology? Were any of "them" replaced by the technology? Were any of "them" the technology itself?

Technology = a device? A pc? A tv? A phone?
Trchnology = an invention of the last 3 years? 10 yesrs? 30 years? 40 years? 100 years?

Does technology concern mainly entertainment? Did they die because they trusted too much in technology? Because they undertake a risky action? Were them relevantly related to each other? Did they use that technology in order to celebrate something? Did they use it at work? While traveling?

Did they die of heart attack? Directly because of technology? Or were they murdered? Are explotions relevant? Were them testing something? Curie involved?

Was their GPS device manipulated? Were them murdered by soneone directly with a weapon?

Did they end up in the wrong place? In a dangerous place? Did they travel by car and have a gps on it?

Did they die inside the car? Accident? Is the geographic cohodinate the problem? Or other features indicated by GPS such as trafic situation?

Was the aoneone who had murdered them inside the car? Outside? Was there a confusion with names in GPS? Had the GPS a vocal recognition (vocal instructions)? Relevant? Did they start from place A to reach a specific place B? If so was place B a city/town? Did they insert the name of the city/town in the GPS? Or the GPS cohordinates?

So they ended up in the right place which was a dangerous place right? Does it mean that they intended to go in the dangwrous place? Relevant their job? Policeman? Is the murder aware of their destination?

Were they killed by gunshots?
Did the murderer know they were coming to the particular place? Did somehow have access to their GPS? Or hack their GPS?

Ok so GPS cohordinates were fine...so is it relevant in which streets the GPS led them in order to reach place B? Did the GPS led them to the dangerous place, in order to led them to the shortest path to reach place B, instead to a safer one which would be longer?

Were them murdered once reached place B? Before? After? (E.g. GPS on the way back) wanted the murderer to steal them something?

Excelent, Earnest, now all that remains to be found is why they were killed. To steal them something was not the main reason

well thanks Insight!

was it usual for cars to pass through that zone? If so, for any type of cars? Did the murderer recognize the car per se? The plaque? The nationality? The people in inside? Was it a disreputable zone?

Don't know if it is right in english however...did the murderer shot directly to them or did he pierce the wheels of their car?

So...as far as I've understood, the murderer killed them not because the appeareance of the car right? So is because of where the car was? Was the car parked? Was the car moving? Was the car transporting something relevant (e.g. a dead body if the car was an hearse)?

Did the murderer shoot as soon as he saw the car? Did they ask for info? Was it the first time that the murderer see the car? Did the car pass through that place once? Did they stop?

Regarding the "yope" to their job(s) being relevant, does only one of them have a relevant job? If so, the woman? The man? Is it a hope because it's a source of income but not really a job? Are they criminals? Do they have relevant hobbies? Volunteer for a relevant organization?

Was this simply a case of the shooter missing their intended target? Were they targeted in error? Was there anything relevant on the exterior of the vehicle? Were they playing any relevant music through the stereo? Had they performed an illegal or dangerous driving maneuver? Is one of them a driving instructor?

car = a luxury car? a convertible car? a jeep? a car usually adopted by gangsters? A car usually adopted by some kind of people? was the car varnished in a particular way?(e.g. with a flag? with a symbol? with something that could be interpreted as a sign of something?)

Appearence relevan...so is the relevant part of the car noticed by the man who shot: the wheels? The hull? the roof? the back? the hood? the painting? some sticker on the car?
was it a military zone? was the car mistaken for a possible danger?

Were they the only people in the car? Was it a police car? Were they in it for a ride-along? Was it a car that was marked to denote that it belonged to a particular company or provided a particular service? Was it a cab?
