Alix Tichelman: Leave family out of this

Re "Cops say alleged hooker is Folsom femme fatale" (Page A1, July 10): Let's skip the part where The Bee scooped a bunch of dirty details and plastered photos for two days of front page sales. Why are you dragging her father into this with two paragraphs of details about him and his company, starting on Page 1? And then cruelly slam the victim by dwelling on his failings to make his better self and family seem hollow and cheap by contrast?

I don't know anyone involved in this case, and I question The Bee's decision to shoot low with 12 salacious photos, numerous unnecessary details and kicking a murder victim's family when they're down.
