Woman's paid obit neglects to mention pertinent detail: She killed five people.

A North Carolina newspaper explains why it published a paid obituary that neglected to mention the deceased's responsibility for a shooting rampage. Includes links to news stories.

Fascinating issue - and interesting blog. Perhaps the paid for and independently written obits could be in separate parts of the paper - or at least clearly distinct?

(My own experience is in broadcast obits, not print.)
