Sad Story, Great Lede

There’s nothing about this crime story from North Carolina that isn’t awful and sad.  Except of course, the lede, from AP reporter Jeffrey Collins, which is pretty great.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Police yesterday said a North Carolina father sent his daughter to school for two weeks with a dire warning: Tell anyone about your two dead siblings at home, and I’ll kill you and your 2-year-old brother, too.

Like a punch to the teeth.  [via]
