I'll say this again...Please move on from the whole thing. SOMEONE DIED!!! Did you ever think for once that maybe the family of the person who lost their life is reading this and it's upsetting them because you guys are only talking about a matter of opinion. And not about that this man was a father, husband, son, brother, uncle, grandchild etc. Just something to think about...

First, I would like to send my sincere condolences to the family that lost their loved one. Second, I find NOTHING wrong with Patch printing these pictures. This is nothing more than good news reporting. Had they printed pictures of the body in the car or being removed, that would have been distasteful...accident pictures are not. Anyone who happened to be driving by on Route 6 would have seen the same thing and more. These pictures showed nothing more than the under carriage of a car. A car that was unidentifiable unless (as Adam stated above) the family could recognize the undercarriage of their loved one's car. I subscribe to the Patch because I want to be kept abreast of the news in my community. Not just the happy news...ALL the news. While this was no doubt tragic and sad, it is nonetheless news.

That's why the police didn't release the name of the victim.
