I am very sorry that I forgot to use the /sarcastic tag at the end of my rant. The AP story had minimal details yet the author of the other piece criticizing it drew a bunch of conclusions that were not implicit from what was written. One thing that I have learned is that every news story that I have ever been involved in has been inaccurate... often wildly inaccurate. So again I am sorry. I wasn't trying to be critical of the victim. Who knows if any of what was reported has been accurate. Certainly, it is not fair to make any judgments of her character based on the reporting of this tragedy.

Thanks for that clarification and my sincere apology to you for thinking you were not being sarcastic.
You are correct in that news stories are often inaccurate and lacking in important details or are just plain sensationalist.
