A strange advert at the station.

Another advert that I walk past every day is for a new thriller. It reads as follows: "Dr David X (Beck? Peck? Deck?) has just received an email from his wife. But Elizabeth Beck/Peck/Deck was brutally murdered eight years ago."

Clearly, this is an example of thriller writers moving into the 21st century. But I have two questions based on this write-up:
(1) If she was murdered 8 years ago, who's been paying to keep her email account active?
(2) How does he know it was from her, when it's been typed?

Hmmm.
