If the police did not release the names of the deceased because the next of kin have not been notified.... why did the newspaper identify who lived in the home? The purpose of withholding the names is so that the family does not learn about the deaths from a cold heartless newspaper article. My sympathy goes to the family for their tragic loss. I hope and pray they did not learn of the tragedy from the news.

Exactly the post I was about to write. Not very responsible of the Courant.

Why is there a need for 6 cruisers to be there? Isn't a couple of troopers sufficient to handle the case?

Holy Crap. I was about to post the exact same thing.

Nothing like posting the address... then a paragraph later saying who lives/owns the home.

The police gave out the address at the scene on the channel 30 news (I think that's the one I was watching).. Most people would be able to put 2 and 2 together.

It's immoral and unethical for them to do so. There at one time was a thing called responsible reporting.

The press has a responsibility to inform. The Who ,what, when, where, how and why are journalism BASICS!

I guess neighbors have no shame either, since they would be able to identify who lived next door.

Get a life. These reporters are just doing their jobs.

Information about who lives at the stated address is public information. The newspapers can access these records as easily as you or I. It seems unfair for people to slam the Courant for irresponsible reporting when they're simply providing the facts of the case. One should also point out that just because the two people listed in the article live at the residence doesn't mean they're the same two people who were found dead.

Can the Courant post the public information, yes. Should they have the decency to wait? Absolutely. Some posters are getting caught up in what a paper can do as to what is the right thing to do. The public is not at any risk if this information were delayed a day. The media is given great freedom in this country and they have a responsibility to be DECENT!! This rush to get out the names is only LAZY reporting. A simple follow up article would be so simple, but that takes time and work. We know they can report it. Decent people know they should not have reported it yet.

So the residents of the house were on vacation, 2 people broke into the home and died.....now that's a story!!

My guess is that it was probably carbon monoxide poisoning. We had a few similar incidents in our city this past winter. PLEASE friends, invest a few dollars in carbon monoxide detectors and smoke detectors PLUS fresh batteries. Your life may depend on it.

The media is not "given" a great freedom. The people have a constitutionally guaranteed freedom from infringements of speech by the governemt.

We're not a full-fledged tyranny yet. Pretty soon.

There is no need to post the exact address or the names of the owners. As was said in another post, would it have mattered if they posted the same names the next day? So to continue with your logic, if the two people found were not the ones listed in the article, why get relatives all worked up thinking it was the father and daughter who lived there. Let's face it, the only ones who would know the names anyways are relatives and friends. Just the same people the police are trying to contact. DUH...

What, the vultures (both press and nosey public) can't wait a freekin' day to put a name on the corpses? We don't need to know every detail the moment something happens.
