Police Ransomware is a notorious virus that threatens the victim into paying some amount and informs the victim that they will be jailed, if they failed to pay.  So far, the worst-case scenario of a ransomware has been victim paying the fine, thinking it is legitimate warning from Police.

But, no one could have expected that this notorious malware forced a man into committing suicide.

Softpedia covers a terrible tragedy took place in the Romania - a man has committed suicide, after his system got infected by a 'Police Ransomware'. 

The man hanged himself and held his 4 year old boy in his arms with rope around his neck.  They both died strangled.

He left a suicide note to his wife which reads "I don’t think it’s normal what I’ve done (…) I apologize to all of you (…) I received a warning that said I have to pay 70.000 lei or go to prison for 11 years (…) I don’t want Nicusor [the small boy who was killed] to suffer because of me (…) I can’t stand going to prison. I can’t!"
