The level of "sensationalist, tabloid reporting" of certain crimes in the UK is linked directly to media laws in this country. As all journalists know, once suspects are charged, a blanket ban comes into force until trial. Flouting this ban brings with it the risk of being in contempt of court.
Therefore the media will grab hold of any story where the suspect is either as yet unknown (the Suffolk murderer), known and on the run (the two recent mass shootings), or otherwise occurring outside the UK (the Knox case, Madeleine McCann).
The lesson is clear: for those seeking media notoriety, commit a gruesome crime and stay on the run as long as you can; for those wishing to remain anonymous – no matter how "sensational" the crime – hand yourself in straightaway.

Meanwhile, the blame for most of the country's political, social and economic problems is laid firmly at the feet of illegal immigrants and burqa-clad Muslims.
Who needs "news", eh? Take today's Express front page. "One in five Britons will be ethnics," screams the headline. (On the Express website, by the way, Macer Hall's "story" is accompanied by a picture of – yep, you guessed it – two women in burqas. So now we've been warned what those dastardly ethnics will look like too. Thank God!)
Speaking as an "ethnic" – is that even a noun? – I can't say................ "
