Baby found dead in River

The body of a newborn baby was found in the Treasure Island Casino's marina Monday. A casino worker while getting ready for the upcomming boating season found the body in a slip at the marina off the Mississippi River. This is the third newborn found in the river since 1999.

The Star Tribune and the Pioneer Press report on the story. Both stories contain basically the same informaiton; however, the Strib includes information on the possibility of the area forming a task force to look at the three homicides.

In my mind, the Pioneer Press blows the Strib out of the water on this story. They provide a concise, well-informed, organized story. They cover the basics, plus some, and a few interivews. The story is way easier to understand and isn't repeatitive like the Strib's story.
