  1. The image associated with this article is disturbing and insensitive to the family of this poor woman. If this were someone related to me I would not want to read about it in an article that begins with the fiery face of someone who appears to be in excruciating pain. Show some respect.

  2. Except, that, you know, she was stabbed to death before the fire was set. Too bad the person who did that didn’t show a little respect.
