It is important to report this tragedy, and for the public to dialogue about it with the facts.

That's not journalism. That's just violence porn.
As soon as someone can give me some actual reason why publishing something like that is necessary, I'll roll it around. But right now, it seems like nothing but a ploy for publicity -- capitalizing on someone else's pain.
