BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — It has happened again. The Palm Beach Post, eager to report on events affecting people in Boca Raton, has misreported information regarding the highly publicized murders at Boca Raton’s Town Center Mall back in 2007. Killed were Nancy Bochicchio, 47, and her 7 year old daughter.
Boca Raton Police, in a strongly worded statement posted as a video on their website and on YouTube, calls the reporting “irresponsible.”
The paper attempted to connect the dots between the arrest of an FAU police officer and the murders.
In the statement, Boca Raton Police spokesperson Marc Economou said, “(the media reports state that) we have identified a new suspect. Let me be clear. We do not have a new suspect. Over the past six years, we have investigated hundreds of leads in this case. This person was brought to our attention two years ago. He was investigated, and is not of any more interest to us than any other lead.”
Proving that the media has become a world of “monkey see, monkey do,” television stations in the area also reported the Post’s story — a story which has apparently now been removed from the paper’s website.
