Releasing names in poor taste

To the editor,

I think it is in extremely poor taste that Truro Daily News chose to release the name of the victims in suspected double homicide, attempted suicide before police did. RCMP will not release names until all family has been contacted. In some cases it is also done as to not hinder the investigation. 

I think the decision to do so anyway was a blatant disregard for human decency and empathy towards a distraught family all to get a scoop.
