If it's a suicide, and I'm NOT saying it is, I believe the general rule is no reporting unless it's a public person or a person in a public place.

I would have sworn it said baby.. My vile, ramblings and radical thinking process has finally come full circle. I with utmost humility, embarassment and bruised ego, apologize. Wow. You were all right! I am a rambling old fool!!! Boy, do I feel like a schmuck, and I am not even Jewish.

I think this pretty much sums up my career as a trouble maker and baiter of comments. I will do my best to stop posting. Jeesh!! Take care everyone. R.I. P. Consumer1

"Hornberger did not provide further information."

Ya, these journalist really don't know how to play good journalist, bad journalist, beat up, interrogate, coerce, or threaten law enforcement officers into giving them a sensational news story full of made up details. Were not enough doughnuts not offered? lol j/k

R.I.P unknown body.

Homeless choose to live out there. Add in a couple of really cold nights and you have that as a possible explanation.

YOu print a headline like this one. By design to get attention. Then you say you have no information.... REALLY?? HOw do you know it was a baby? This sensationalistic journalism is pretty pathetic.
