… police have taken the unusual step of making a statement regarding online rumours about the case that began immediately after the body was found.So what? So’s gossip. Can’t stop it.
Mr Fry said he was ‘very concerned’ about comments made on websites including Twitter following the discovery.
He said speculation was ‘inaccurate’ and ‘distressing’.
'I am very concerned that the speculation regarding this incident, particularly on social media sites and in the local area, could cause distress to members of the public,’ said Mr Fry.The only way it’ll cause ‘distress’ to members of the public is if they go on line and actively look for it.
‘I would like to stress that most of the comments I have seen or heard are inaccurate and should be treated with caution.’
Get the impression there's a concerted effort in all branches of government to paint the Internet as the root of all evil?
