The progression of ABC's article deals with a very broad span of time, and the progression of the article is crucial for the audience's understanding.
The author begins with the recent arrest of a man linked to a crime in 1976. The background of the victim of the crime committed is then given, along with the dedicated detectives who never stopped investigating the crime.
The article then progresses to give details on the odd "gum survey" that led to the victim's DNA being identified as blood splattered on the victim's kitchen cabinet. The article then concludes with the upcoming trial information, and the consequences if the man is proven guilty.
The article is written in chronological time, with the exception of the background of the crime. Since the crime was almost 30 years ago, giving the details is important to gain the interest of the audience.
This article was very effective. The title had a shock value, its progression was easy to follow and is engaging to audiences.
