Stories don't jibe in baby's death
In The Pioneer Press article by Mara H. Gottfried, police find conflicting stories over the death of an infant. According to the parents, 15-month-old Destiny fell from a bed. However, an autopsy has revealed that she was struck in the torso and died from internal injuries. Her father is being charged with second-degree unintentional murder.
This same event was covered in the Star Tribune by Paul Gustafson. An entirely new perspective and viewpoint emerges with this article. The 18-year-old parents provide different stories about her death and the newest dealt with the father, Beauford Jackson, running down the stairs with her when she hit her head on the overhang and fell down the steps.
For some reason, the article in the Star Tribune provides a bit more of a raw look at the conflict in stories and avoids confusion by not indulging in the blurry court cases and past stories of their messy lives. I can undoubtedly see why this event was covered by both newspapers for its intriguing element of crime and suspense that essentially makes any story newsworthy.
