So wrong

This case was recently solved and the reporter got it dead wrong - her conclusions didn’t even make sense with the facts of the case. There was no new reporting, and the reporter speculating that one of the kids friends did it (with zero evidence to suggest that) is harmful to memory of those kids and the friends that cared for them. Poor writing, poor production, poor reporting.
