Has the Star turned over a new leaf? For future crimes and accidents, can we expect a detailed description of who the police are looking for?
In an accident where nobody died, we get enough information to help the police, but if someone robs a liquor store at gunpoint, well.....details aren't important.

It's not just the Star, giving an intentionally vague description of suspects is common practice in the media. They are more likely to give a specific description if the suspect is white, as is the case in the link that you shared.

I suspect that is done in a twisted attempt to avoid the appearance of racism. After they report a thousand times per year that a black or Hispanic man is wanted in connection with a crime, someone criticized them for picking on minorities. Now they just name the sex of the suspect and leave it at that.
