    Thanks for posting this.

    To Linda and family, I wish there were a way to ease your pain, but I know there’s nothing anyone can say or do. Just know that people do care and won’t forget.

    Well done, Mr. Rapid Eye. Thank you for listening to my friend Linda and reporting the story with some sensitivity and context. Why isn’t the mainstream media harassing the police department and demanding to know what they are doing to find this killer? Instead, they harass a family during a time of intense grief, all in the name of selling advertising, and then just dump the story and leave the damage their irresponsible reporting has done to this family, and to Charity’s memory, in their wake.

    Linda, thank you for sharing those photos and your memories with the many people who are following this story and who care deeply. I know how much you loved Charity, and I am so grateful you are making sure that people know who she was, beyond simply a story of tragedy on the nightly news.

    To Linda,
    My heart goes out to you and your family and Charity’s blessed baby boy. I pray that God brings you justice and some measure of comfort in the coming years. Please do not give up. Bug the police, remind the newspapers and the television stations every chance you can. I do believe that someone out there knows something, even if they are not aware of it, there is some information out there. Never, ever, ever give up. Someday, somewhere, someone will pay for this terrible sin. Charity is in heaven watching over your beloved family. You will always be in my heart and prayers. God bless.

    […] Somebody killed Hendersonville, North Carolina’s Charity Worley in her driveway a couple of weeks before Christmas 2008. Like most homicides, it was brutal. It was made worse by the fact she was beaten to death and found by her mother. Finally, it was made worse by how one member of the media handled the 911 call. […]
