I think it's incredibly sad that anyone has to hide the person who was murdered in such a way, if indeed that is what they are doing. It shouldn't matter if the victim is a member of high society or homeless, no one should ever have to die and be so horribly mutilated in that way. No one.
But society for the most part seems to care just a little bit less depending on who the victim is. Just look at what Picton got away with for so long.
Absolutely. They want her memory to be a pleasant one. People should not remember some ravaged human being because that is not all she was. She wasn't just a victim she was someone's baby, daughter, sister, friend.
The police acted quickly. They get to know certain people that appear before them or that cross their paths repeatedly. Sometimes feelings develop that are not always negative.
We had one street guy always around for years and years. When he died his funeral was bigger than many well known upper strata people because he had touched many, many lives and he was well known within the community. Everyone knew Martin with the brightest blue eyes I have ever seen.
Here is a link from our local paper with a bit more info if you are interested.

I think you recognize the evil that exists everywhere, inside of all of us and you drag it kicking and screaming out into the harsh light of day. But evil is, at minimum, unpleasant so no one likes to do that. It's left in the dark corners of society and the human psyche and that's where it flourishes.
Hm I am not certain if "evil" lurks in all of us actually. It certainly doesn't exist in the light as you say. I actually believe that people are on different levels or plains and the more highly evolved do not have that type of blackness in them. Some people, contain more light, and it is a process....let's put it that way.
