Their casual, callous cruelty and almost-gleeful responses to various developments in this heartbreaking and horrifying human tragedy have been outrageous, breathtaking - and utterly depressing. A little girl is missing, but all some want to do is b*tch and gloat and goad." Liverpool Echo 29 April 2008
  •  "Armchair detectives, conspiracy theorists, psychics and gossips" "malicious toungues wagging" "poisonous guessing games" The Times 14 December 2007
