News Story on the Subject

I don't know if I am doing the right thing by posting this... personally, I am finding comfort in knowing as much as I can, but I understand that others may not feel that way. But feel free not to click.

Here's the latest.

The fact that he's referred to as simply "a 37-year-old man" angers me for some reason. I know anonymity is standard procedure in these cases, but I can't help feeling like it's a slight.

I know that. (And incidentally, I know that the family has been notified, although I cannot account for everyone who is related to him.)

I can't explain why it caused me pain to see him referred to in the generic like that, but it did. I do not suggest for a moment that the police aught to deviate from their usual procedure. It's a case of irrational emotion in the midst of extreme sadness.

I don't mean to snap, Carrie. I just felt like I already made it clear that I understood that.

You know something? I have no idea what I am saying at this point. I am sorry. I am just so sad.

You're right, I did misread what you said. Dont apologize for being upset, you have every right to be.

aw honey
Totally understandable that that should bother you - it is the awfulness of a person turned into a statistic. I am so sorry for your loss.
