    It is obvious that the show was simply profiting off of the sensationalism of the crime. They are under no legal obligation to play fair, or to respect the privacy and dignity of the people involved. That door was smashed down a decade ago with the 24/7 coverage of the O.J Simpson murder trial.

    You won't find this kind of sympathetic coverage for people accused of other crimes. You don't get "Maybe the guy wanted his car stolen at gunpoint. I mean, the guy loaned out the car to a friend just the day before. In fact, he loaned out the car to more than one friend. And lets face it, he was driving that expensive car right through the bar district at night."
