The unfortunate death of Maddox Derkosh at the zoo is a newsworthy event. However, the photo on the front page of Saturday's paper showing his grieving family, especially his mother and father, was unnecessary.
We can't begin to know the loss and pain they are experiencing and will continue to experience. To put this on display for all to see is inappropriate. I'm sure there were many other images you could have selected that would have portrayed the sadness of this event without invading the privacy of Maddox's devastated family.
