Couple slain

Last night this got coverage from local ATV: a couple was killed last Sunday night. A Cape Breton woman (Port Morien) and her Dutch internet friend were shot to death by the woman’s estranged husband. Weird: it’s not mentioned in Dutch media (or maybe I just oversaw it?), but it’s a sad story for sure. The accused had been receiving councelling the past couple of months. Says a neighbour:

   “It’s a darn shame. I feel so sorry for those little kids. . . . It’s shocking for both families.”

Not only a shame for both families: apparantly they forget that there is also a grieving Dutch family. Add: North American media normally release the names of victims whereas Dutch media normally withold those names.

Update: Link fixed
