  1. You released the name of the name that was killed on Esterley Tibbetts the day that it happened. Why won’t you release the name of the man who killed Richard? It is clear who committed this terrible act last week and took the life of a father, husband and friend. It only seems fair if you release this man’s name.

  2. As with the previous comment why isn’t the man’s name being released as he has been charged? How about some openness and transparency?

    Editor’s note: Unless and until the libel laws of this country, which currently consitute a criminal offence, are changed to reflect more modern norms, the newspaper will continue to maintain the policy of naming suspects in crimes only when and if they are charged in open court.

    If individuals wish a more, shall we say, "free" free press in their country, we advise them to contact their local legislators to address the issue.
