Summit County Coroner objects to use of photos in murder-suicide coverage (letter)

I am writing to express my concern and disappointment at the photographs that accompanied the McNaul story on February 14. It is my opinion that the photos were in extremely poor taste and inappropriate for print given the facts of the case.

This has been a devastating event for the family and friends of Jim and Dorthe McNaul. I do not see the value in contributing to their pain by publishing said photographs. I would urge you and the Summit Daily News staff to please use caution in the future when dealing with very personal and sensitive matters in a small, close knit community such as ours.
