Re: The Knoxville Horror

My point is that many, many horrific crimes don't get reported nationwide.

Horrific crimes are pretty depressing news. They don't sell newspapers (or their electronic equivalent) nationally unless there's an unusual twist. Typically the twist is that the victim is really rich or the accused is middle class (Amanda Knox, the Duke case). The victims being middle class usually doesn't qualify as a sufficiently interesting twist.
