ANNOUNCEMENT: React before it's too late!

In the last few days, the "realization" of another murder of a woman J.M. (33 years old) is ubiquitous, and the media ceaselessly compete in bringing out the bizarreness of this case. Almost nothing has changed in delivering details and speculations about the murder of J.M. for 18 months since she was killed. On Saturday morning, the day after she participated in the reality show "Zadruga", her husband Z.M. was arrested because, according to the media, evidence was found that implied he was the murderer. Leaving the competent services to deal with the case clarification and punishing those responsible, we wonder if the media had in mind what kind of damage to the family members such a report could have caused, as well as damage to the six-year-old daughter of the murdered J.M.?
