Why did the journalist include so much detail about the his baseball background???? What does that have to do with the story? He MURDERED his wife. Where is the editorial on her life, achievements, interests? Why do we care about his hitting stats. Shaking my head.

I agree with Celeste's comment. It's about his wife's murder, not his obituary!

No mention of children or family in the area.
Just loser minor league baseball stats. The only person who cares about that info is the murder. Living in the past, clearly a womanizer.

Editors should have edited out the sports info.

Baseball stats! Really?

I agree with the above comments, but please don't call the person who wrote this a journalist. Too good of a title for that person.

Editor's note: A previous version of this story included extraneous details about John Tercheria's athletic background. That information has now been removed as irrelevant to the story. We appreciate the feedback from readers on that point.
