This crime deserves the death penalty. I wish Minnesota would have one.

Hmmm, getting that wetterling feeling. There is a fine line between constructive harnessing of grief and forming an industry based on a dead child. The word "leverage" is an unfortuate choice in this context.

And yes, death penalty for the puke.

I am amazed at the dastardly comments made regarding this young lady. I am not sexist as apparently some are in their comments. The erth spins in one direction and apparently so does the thought process for so many "people". Get a grip guys and have some compassion. A woman's attire is not always the answer to her death or assault. The guy was at fault for posting a false ad to lure her to his place. No matter what gender you are, there are people out there who will hurt anyone regardless their gender, attire or lack of,race, religious belief, and so on. IT'S A HORRIBLE AND SICKENING WORLD WE HAVE TO LIVE IN....LET'S BETTER OURSELVES...GEEEEEEEZZZZ

Hey funny man! I mean child. I mean scum of the earth. I mean you're not even a whole POS, but possibly just small, little, insignificant hull of corn floating in the sewer. A rat wouldn't even bother with your sorry excuse of a life.

If a person from the past, before our society turned into a liberal disease of tolerance for criminals and anti-social behaviors (post 1960s that is), saw a story like this they would think we were living in a hell-zone. Answer an ad and get killed. What a mentally ill society we are living in now.

Does anything look odd about this headline?

Parents of babysitter killed responding to craigslist ad appear...

When I first read it, I thought the parents of the baby sitter had been killed; not the babysitter.

Another outstanding example of journalism
