Letter: Over the top

Up until Sunday, your paper professionally reported the events as they have occurred in the Nancy Pfister homicide case. Then, on Sunday, you began to sensationalize the case with the front page headline, “‘A BIG, BIG DEAL.’”

How you could stoop to this level of journalism, after publishing Tony Vagneur’s very beautiful and moving love letter to Nancy on Saturday, is beyond me. Tony expressed to all of us all that ever needed to be said about our very great loss of one of our own.

I beg you to cease sensationalizing Nancy’s death. Your condescension only trivializes our great pain.

Jim Breasted
