Here Comes The Sun

Wondering what tragic news event The Sun will exploit and sensationalize for its cover tomorrow? Based on last week, we have a likely candidate [link now expired], though the death of another “tot” in gang violence could also fill the paper’s daily quota of grisly.
UPDATE (11:00 p.m.): CityNews is reporting that the boy who fell from the apartment building earlier today is, allegedly, a “would-be robber” who fell while trying to escape. Maybe some stories just sensationalize themselves…
UPDATE (12:35 a.m.): The Star confirms that the fall was a botched robbery, and releases more details about Ephraim Brown’s exceptionally sad death. What the media does with the latter story next is anyone’s guess, but let’s hope—for everyone’s sake—that this doesn’t become the circus that the event it’s being compared to, Jane Creba’s death, was.
