    "Society, you apparently do not care to pursue this story..."

    I fixed that for you. Why single out WRAL? Collectively, we're all complicit.

    WRAL, you apparently do not care to pursue this story, so why do you leave it on the webpage? It is now 3 days after the initial posting and not one word has been updated from the original incomplete story. If no other details are available, how could anyone think to call Crime Stoppers. This story doesn't even hint that a crime was committed. Not all deaths are the result of crime. The only things we know is that a homeless man died and he had a friend who was questioned by police. Did I miss something?
