An interesting question arises in relation to the local news story of a woman and her baby found shot to death in their home in a Boston suburb, while her British husband, who left the country about the time of the murders, refuses to speak to investigators or even return to the US to bury his family. But my question isn’t really about the case per se, but about the news coverage.
The family had a personal web site full of photos of the parents, Rachel and Neil Entwistle, and their daughter Lillian, who was only about 9 months old. The local media, including the Boston Herald, have been liberally reprinting those photos, up to 4 or 5 per day for the past week. They even have galleries of the photos on their own web sites.
Can they do that?
