Editor, The News:

I was recently reading your article about the body found in the Neshannock Creek.

I am very angry at the article that was written about Jeffery Mackey. It was tasteless.

I knew and worked with this man. You could have not known a better person. To me, it is sad that there was more respect to the lost dogs article than him.

Imagine if Mackey were your brother, son or most important your father. What was even in more distaste were the photographs taken and shown in the paper and website.

Mackey’s life and death are not sensationalism or hard news. Please in the future stay away from stories like this for the privacy of the grieving family and friends.
