The link to this story was titled: Most Popular Story. Considering the content of the story, "most popular" seems a bit crass and disrespectful of the woman, don't you think? How about calling the category "most frequently read" or something along those lines?

I'll pass your suggestion along -the title is a corporate decision, used on all Patch sites, not a local one I can change.

Betsy is correct!! It wasn't popular at all!! Hardly newsworthy!! 6 days have passed, and no one seems to care, nor was there much media publicity, even as to the ability to identify the victim, or ask for help from the public asking by providing some vital statistics on the woman, such as age, race, height and likely weight at death.
