Okay, so I read on Wikipedia that the majority of child murders are done by a relative, either the parents or a teenager or uncle or somebody, so the ones where a stranger abducts the kid and they go missing for a few days before being found deceased are national-news worthy, b/c of rarity, ie the florida girl.
But what about missing persons who aren’t ‘kids’ or even teens? The story about the teen in Aruba, for instance; she’s a teen, so she is a kid still, and so it’s very rare for her to be abducted and murdered by anyone. But what about other missing people who become national news stories up until they’re found dead or okay, like Dru Sjodin in North Dakota who was alive, etc.; anyone know what news agencies use to decide which ones are worthy of the most attention?
Don’t bring up the run away bride. :rolleyes:
