Google released its list of the District's top 2013 searches this morning, and the "Boston Marathon," "Aaron Hernandez," and "iphone 5s" came out on top.

The list didn't stray too much from the list of national trends, in which "Paul Walker," "Boston Marathon Bombing," and "Nelson Mandela" ranked as the most searched terms.

"This year saw a wave of interest in DC for everything from learning more about tragic events like the Boston Marathon and the Oklahoma tornado – all the way through to learning about political terms like Obamacare and DOMA," Google spokeswoman Kate Mason wrote in an email.
