Details at the time of the incident were confusing, and many people discussing the homicide had conflicting information. Developing stories of this magnitude and complication tend to leave behind a trail of rumors or unconfirmed information.
This is why usually reports of breaking news may be published as a developing story. Certain details heard, seen, etc at the scene may differ from the facts presented by PD after a preliminary investigation. As long as the information is corrected or confirm ed prior to press release, all is well. The important part is getting the story out to the people, who deserve to know what’s happening in their community.
