Analysis: Leads

| No Comments

The lead to the story written by New York Daily News, "Missouri teen, Alyssa Bustamante, pleads guilty to killing 9-year-oldĀ Strangled girl, slashed her throat just to see what it would feel like, prosecutors say," is a great lead to analyze.

This lead almost answers the five Ws- Who, What, Where, When, and Why.
Who: A Missouri teen, Alyssa Bustamante
What: pleads guilty to killing 9-year-old
Where: ?
When: ?
Why: To see what it would feel like

The details of this lead focus on how the girl killed the 9-year-old and why she did it. The location of the crime seems to be in Missouri since that is where Bustamante is from, but the New York Daily News didn't specify exactly where. It is a straightforward and hard-news lead, but the journalist did leave out two components that I believe a lead should cover.
