Murder was one of the searches... http://plentyoffish.wordpress.com/2006/08/07/aol-search-data-shows-users-planning-to-commit-murder/

Keep in mind that EVERY search you perform is logged by the search engine. This info includes YOUR IP, which can be used to verify your location. So with that tiny bit of info people with access to your search history can find out who you are and exactly what it is you are searching for.

So happy searching out there... :(
