Murder? Apparently there’s an app for that, too.

That’s according to Phoenix police who say a local guy was murdered by a 19-year-old fellow he met using a social networking iPhone app often used by gay men to hook up.

Mark G. Woodland, 54, was found dead at his apartment in the 3800 block of East Greenway Road.

Police say Woodland’s roommate returned home to the apartment the men shared about 11 p.m. on Saturday and noticed that the place had been ransacked.

The roommate called police, who, after searching the apartment, found Woodland’s body beaten and stabbed in a downstairs bathroom.
