nice jusxtaposition of headlines..I'm sure it does wonders for the victims friends and family to see her death in the same headline as a weight loss story. Good job of journalism (look it up) NOT

Agreed. That was insensitive and crass. I realize that Sarah's disappearance and death are big news, but they should be (and mostly have been, by Patch) treated with more respect than this.
