I agree, you should see the press coverage it's getting here. Every day Skynews has a breaking story about her death, there's been well over 10
different breaking news stories released. Some of them include:
CCTV footage of her buying a pizza (understandable, last appearance)
Police want to locate the pizza box (not joking)
Mother and Father very sad
Mother misses daughter
Brother misses sister and is distraught
Joanna had a sock missing- article included main picture of PC holding up said sock to press (ridiculous)
Police draft in criminal psychologist (this over a week after her body found)
£50,000 reward for information (fair enough, no point offering a reward which nobody knows about)
Police confident of catching killer
Then there's also been at least 5 more about her landlord, he was the main suspect- though he has now been released without charge.
Now, obviously her death is very tragic, but why all this coverage? Like I say, these were all headlines/breaking news at the top of skynews.co.uk.
Some of them are ridiculous, people regularly go missing and are murdered. Again, of course, I am not justifying her death or saying we shouldn't
care- but it's gotten silly. Why is a pizza box important? Why tell us it took over a week to draft in a criminal psychologist? Surely that's common
place in a high profile such as this. Why print at least 4 stories about how sad her family are? Of course they're going to be sad.
Truly, my deepest sympathies go to her family, I'm not heartless- but why is this given such special treatment in comparison to numerous other
murders/disappearances, it's strange.
I should also add, it's quite good, I'm not complaining, it's a much more positive use of the press than the usual celebrity drivel and propaganda
fear mongering flu nonsense we're usually subjected to.
