This site as it exists today was created on May 10, 2004, after our original site was threatened with a lawsuit. The McDonald’s corporation did not like our original site for its use of their trademarks for the purpose of parody, so after an entertaining week of displaying their cease & desist letter on our home page, we decided to change our focus.
McMurder.com exists to provide historical documentation of actual Murders that have taken place at McDonald’s restaurants throughout the world. If you have knowledge of a murder that took place at a McDonald’s restaurant, and we have not added that murder to our site, please contact us immediately.
