More specifically, "Who Governs it?"

Technically no one entity governs it. If the crime is committed in a certain country, then they're tried in that country. Which is why Julian Assange is still kicking and a senator in Australia last I checked.

If that's true then if someone where to somehow get into space and murder someone there...who would try them for murder?

It's a hypothetical question that I just had to ask when you said
"If the crime is committed in a certain country, then they're tried in that country"
because since Space doesn't belong to anyone.

Who controls te internet?: When it first started: programmers. As Ghost said, web hosts.

Who Governs it?: Seems like the NSA. xD

I really feel like noone can control the internet,
it's a place of freedom.
Noone can ban you from accessing their own sites,
Your governments may ban you from use of the internet if you ever get caught doing cyber crimes but with the amount of vpns and mac spoofers,
You're free to do as you wish.
