Over the weekend a tragedy occurred in which a 4 year old girl was violently killed. As yet I don’t believe the media has the details of the incident but the CT has up the details of the deceased child, her mother and her mother’s partner, being the alleged offender.
Occasionally the police place suppression orders on the names of those involved in incidents such as this. When this doesn’t happen the family and friends often find out about the events via the media and subsequently get hounded by the same. What does the readership think? Is there a public interest in exposing the names of the victims and those otherwise involved in such traumatic incidents or does it only cause more suffering and possibly bias?
[ED: The AFP’s lastest media release requesting information is here. Police would like ANY info that relates, please have a look and pass on to any friends you have south side.]
