Forget it. She doesn't see how distasteful the story was because she is comparable to a vulture herself. Hovering over every lewd detail of an already horrific incident only to gain. These aren't people with lives or families to her. It's a scoop.
Please keep in mind that this young woman(my cousin) has family memebers who have, no doubt, already read your poor choice of words. Due to the nature of this tragedy, we will be forced to re-experience the pain and grief once more. Please be mindful of your words when reporting as well as commenting. While little can be done to make this situation better, please spare her friends and family the unnecessary heartache of having every detail tactlessly splattered across the front page. I understand that this is news, however, simply think before you write and show the compassion and respect you would expect if it were your loved one.
