Much obliged. :)

Now, that seems like something that would allow me to actually sublicense that 
work to anybody. So, here goes!

This is close to the tinfoil hat territory, but what if...

 - hack target's corporate email
 - hack target's social network
 - observe them (via webcams, etc)
 - generate psychological profile
 - plant search results https://www.google.com/search?q=hot+car+death+search
 - distract target with emails from the boss and social network posts
 - target leaves child in a hot car
 - target goes to jail. Much cleaner than drones or assassination.

But where's the 'profit' part? There's got to be profit here somewhere...

What, if any, defence is there to this kind of social-engineering attack?
